How to improve your Environment- Part 2

Uncategorized

If you would like to be an active part of your community’s growth and revitalization, check out the following ideas.

Environment

  1. Choose a family “energy watchdog” to shut off lights, television, and dripping sinks when not in use.
  2. Switch your current Internet home page to an energy-saving one, such as Google’s “Blackle”, and turn down the computer screen brightness level as well. (It’s unhealthy for both the environment and your eyes.)
  3. Create a children’s nature garden. Create a path, label plants and trees, and schedule guided tours.
  1. Purchase recycled products as opposed to generic ones.
  2. When buying food or drinks of any kind, it is better to stick to a large jug or tub as opposed to a collection of individually packaged goods.
