Hi We try should save the planet and try to make a better enviorment because there would be less people with health problems. Did you know that there are more people with respiratory problems because of all the air pollution contributing to it? Also, we should think about future generations on Earth and how it would effect our future. Also, global warming is effecting our essential natural resources like food and lakes are drying up and it is causing more droughts in the world. How we should also try saving the planet by using less fossil fuels that pollute the air and instead use wind power or solar power. You should also, drive less and turn out the lights in the rooms that you aren't in, and don't waste things. You should recycle things like plastic, paper and aluminum.
Save Electricity Whenever we use electricity, we help put greenhouse gases into the air. By turning off lights, the television, and the computer when you are through with them, you can help a lot. Bike, Bus, and Walk You can save energy by sometimes taking the bus, riding a bike, or walking. Talk to Your Family and Friends Talk with your family and friends about climate change. Let them know what you've learned. Plant Trees Planting trees is fun and a great way to reduce greenhouse gases. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, from the air. Recycle Recycle cans, bottles, plastic bags, and newspapers. When you recycle, you send less trash to the landfill and you help save natural resources, like trees, oil, and elements such as aluminum.
The three steps Reduce Avoid waste - look for ways of producing and using goods that stop waste being generated. Reduce waste - choose products that can be used productively, recycled in your area, and have minimal packaging. Re-use Re-use containers, packaging or waste products. Recycle Recycle waste material into useable products. For waste that can't be avoided, reused or recycled Treat the waste to make it less hazardous or reduce the volume of the hazardous component. Dispose of the waste safely. Reduce Want to help our environment? The most effective way is to reduce your waste before it becomes rubbish. Become informed about the environmental impacts of the products you buy. If you're not satisfied, search for better alternatives. Bulk buy when possible, but don't buy more than you can use. Choose products with less packaging. Choose products with recyclable or reusable packaging. Carry reusable shopping bags or boxes. Say 'no' to unnecessary plastic bags and other packaging. Re-use plastic bags and all types of containers over and over again. Buy quality goods that will last. Encourage manufacturers to play their part.
