help save our planet
Help keep our planet clean.
I think it is our duty to help keep our planet clean.
I also know that we can make a huge impact on our environment by choosing to make some simple changes in our daily routine.
You don't have to be a vegan to make a difference.
Use less water - Simply turning the water off when you brush your teeth will help you use less water and believe it or not in some places in the world there are extreme shortages of good clean water so I think you can help change the world just by simply using less water.
Use less gas - I think it may shock you to know but the world is running out of oil and by simply using less gas you can help change the world, try walking or riding a bike or even car-pooling.
Recycle - Save aluminum cans, and recycle paper and plastics. Check with your local sanitation departments and many offer free recycling classes.
Don't use plastic bags - Plastic bags are one of the worst things that hurt our environment. They stop up draining ditches and take years to decompose,don't use them. Bring your own bag. Many stores have bags they will give you to reuse each time you go shopping,take advantage of the free bags and make it a habit to bring your own bag shopping.
Reuse plastic containers - It is OK to reuse a plastic water bottle. Simply wash it out and you can use the same on all summer long,the same goes for a gallon plastic milk jug.
Learn to grow a garden - You can help feed yourself and have a lot of fun if you take the time to learn the skill of gardening. Click here to read a hub I wrote about vegetable gardening.
Shop for clothing at thrift stores - Not only will you save money but you will also help the environment. Making clothes or anything else burns fossil fuels by using electricity.
Be Frugal - We all have much more than we actually need to survive. Try to think of ways you can help by being frugal and not buying or using things you don't really need.
Adopt a mile - of highway and keep it clean - Not only will you make money off the aluminum cans you pick up but you will get exercise and build a feeling of accomplishment when you do this.
Do something nice for someone at least once a day - I think that people don't care for their fellow man as much as they used to. Prove me wrong by doing something nice everyday for someone. It could be just words of encouragement to helping a friend in need. It feels good when you do something nice for someone.
