Don't use plastic bags for shopping, use paper recycling bags

Don't scatter can from drink, recycle it, segregate your trash for easier recycling,

Remember that this planet and environment on this planet is not ours, this is just
lent from our children and our grandsons

Don't use fossil fuel if is don't necessary

Somebody says that cattle breeding is responsible for 18% of the worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.

And do you know that from cattle compost can make green energy?

Driving is one of the biggest causes of pollution. If you want to use your car, ask yourself the following question: do I really need my car? Walk or use your bike if the journey is a short one.

Hi @Lisaly
It is a hard task, for this one need to change the style of living to achieve the goal. We can't even expect all to follow our idea. But each of us participate to save the environment activity, can make big contribution to our environment.

For the same one can start from the below points:-

1. You can reduce the water wastage by:-
a. Reducing your bathing time
b, Install a low-flow showerhead
c. Turn off the water in the sink while shaving or brushing your teeth
d. Submerge a full water bottle in the toilet tank to shift or move water and make it a low flow model to save water with each flush
e. Fix leaking pipes
f. Recycle water in your home
g. Where possible, try not to use water as a cleaning solution. Baking Soda and Vinegar can work just as well as other cleaning products.
h. Install aeration nozzles on all taps
i. Water conservation is very necessary as a lot of energy is required to pump water from the river into your home.
2. Unplug chargers, turn off lights and appliances not in use like computers, laptops and phones when you leave for the day.
3. Replace regular light bulbs in your home with compact fluorescent bulbs
4. Join the car pool or public transportation to save fuel and its cost.
5. Avoid using disposable cup or coffee mug at work in order to save space in the landfill and energy. You can bring your own ceramic cup or coffee mug to work.
6. When you make purchases, try to opt for the brands that use recyclable packaging.
7. Bring your meal in a reusable container and don’t buy an additional plastic container for it. Don’t generate waste with a plastic fork and plastic takeout container. Use a reusable container if bringing in lunch from home.
8. Start a recycling program in your home, office or community.
9. Start paying your bills online and ask companies to stop paper bills from being sent to you. Print and copy on both sides of the paper. It helps to save paper and trees.
10. Use reusable grocery bags rather than plastic bags
11. Get your IT equipment like computers, laptop, printer and phones recycled or decomposed in order to reduce related air pollution and water pollution. It can take a million years to decompose. Contact a company offers IT equipment recycling or disposal services in your area.
12. Use a more eco-friendly disposable or cloth in place of nappy of the child as it adds million tons of waste in landfills each year.
13. Recycle newspaper, bows and gift bags by reusing them. You can also create something unique by using old newspaper, maps, and cloth.
14. Instead of purchasing a plastic water bottle, buy an appropriate reusable container. A plastic bottle takes thousands of years to decompose and because it’s not recycled or biodegradable.
15. Plant a tree to reduce air pollution as shady landscape enhances the value of your property and reduce the energy consumption
16. Put the cruise control button on your car to work as you can get better mileage. With increasing gasoline prices, this is a boon for your budget and the environment too.
17. You can save about 10% of your energy use by adjusting your thermostat 1% cooler in winter and 1% higher in summer.
18. Try to get your phone recycled as it introduces very harmful and toxic substances into the environment and go into landfills.
19. Maintain your vehicle by regularly checking the air filter and giving it a clean. This will help your car more efficiently. It’s also important to inflate your tyres to a specific pressure as it reduces tyre-wear and helps the fuel economy.
20. You can conserve energy in your home by
a. Setting your freezer temperature 0-5 or refrigerator temperature at 36-38
b. Minimising door opening while using the oven
c. Avoid using chemicals to clean your home, use a microfiber cloth
21. Buy wooden toys instead of throwaway plastic toys

We all want to help the planet. But how?

The answer could be sitting right in front of us — three times a day. By going vegetarian, we can reduce the impact of climate change, rainforest destruction, and pollution, while saving water and other precious resources.

In fact, raising animals for food produces more greenhouse gas emissions than all of the cars, planes, and other forms of transportation combined.

Source: http://www.chooseveg.com/environment

If you do not eat meat for only 1 day per week, this has the same effect as NOT driving your car for 1250 km (775 miles).

Cattle breeding is responsible for 18% of the worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.

The production of 1 kilo red meat costs 100.000 liters of water (I don't know how many gallons this is in your country).

Eating less meat may be a small step, but it has incredible impact on our environment. Not to mention the fact you will have no more part in the abuse of animals.

We need to stop gas emissions from everything if only the government would cooperate and stop all of it. Then we need to replace anything with gas emissions with solar panels and just natural energy resources like the wind turbines, solar panels, solar heaters, electric cars, I mean everything should at least be replaced with something that doesn't harm the environment. Plastics are another problem, they just can't be incinerated by fire since they just melt and cool, so why not find a way to recycle every kind of plastic? There's other things you can do too besides this, just do some research on science channels and sites online.

there is several ways to improve our enviroment..for me the main 2 causes are fossil fuels and the spraying of pesticides and chemical fertliser.all this winds up in our water shed and polutes the one thing this world needs to live and survive...WATER...with out it we all die,plants,animals,people...so if our water is polluted with all these chemicals we are unable to drink it to live.....fossil fuels get into to our air supply and into our ground water and we need air to live also...so we have a double whammy going on here....now i have 2 gardens and i use compost to fertilise my plants and not chemicals..compost is the only natural way to really fertilise growing plants with out it harming our inviroment cause it is natural and organic....now i have a car but i only drive maybe a total of a 100 miles a month to do all i need,so this is helping our/my enviroment as well.there are so many ways to help improve our enviroment/world and these 2 things i do are a big help...theres other things i do also but this is my main answers here in this post...

I’ll admit that “save” is an interesting word choice, especially considering that many scientists think that we are beyond saving after the environmental devastation we have put Earth through thus far. However, as an eternal optimist, I believe that every little bit counts and that we can still make this planet a beautiful place, and hopefully save its creatures from impending doom. The choices we each make today are important. http://thoughtcatalog.com/lauren-perry/2014/05/20-simple-things-you-can-do-to-help-save-our-planet/
