  • Conserve water. Following this tip helps to save fresh water, and also saves you money.
  • Don't litter. Instead, keep your trash until you find a garbage can. Some litter can kill animals when they get tangled in it.
  • Turn off your lights when you aren't using them. This helps save electricity, which means less pollution and less money on your next bill.
  • Dispose of batteries and chemicals properly. If you are unsure of where to take them, visit a local recycling plant for more information.
  • Think twice before buying items. Do you really need that, or will it just end up in a landfill later on?
  • If you can, participate in community clean-ups, plant a tree, or donate to conservation funds. The planet will thank you for it.
  • Walk or ride your bike instead of driving somewhere close. This burns less gasoline, which reduces greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
  • Buy reusable items instead of disposable ones. This saves you money, and cuts down on the amount of waste in landfills.
