10 Little Things you can do for the Environment

1. Use a glass when brushing your teeth. Every year, billions of liters of fresh water is wasted by simply not using a glass when brushing your teeth.

.
2. Don?t use straws. They say the straw is the most stupid invention. They are unnecessary and only add to our waste problem.

.
3. Say NO to plastics when shopping. Bring your own reusable bags when doing your grocery, or when buying single items like books or cd?s, a plastic bag, or even a paper bag is unnecessary.

.
4. Turn off the lights. When there is ample daylight or when no one is in the room. You not only save on electricity, you also lower temperature as light gives off heat.

.
5. Walk. Take the stairs. Or car pool or take public transportation. You not only lower your carbon gas emissions, you are also doing your heart good when you walk regularly.

.
6. Unplug cell phone chargers after use. As well as all unused electronic appliances. Some appliances use more electricity even when not in use. Microwave oven with timers uses more electricity on stand by mode the entire day than when you cook dinner with it.

.
7. Use both sides of the paper. And make sure to recycle it after. You not only lessen your wastes but you also help stop the unnecessary cutting of more trees.

.
8. Turn off shower when soaping. And make sure to avoid long and frequent showers. Showering three times a day not only uses precious fresh water, but also creates more waste water that goes into our rivers and lakes. It dries your skin too.

.
9. Never burn anything. Burned resources are lost forever. Burning also releases harmful substances into the atmosphere. Reduce and reuse always. Compost and recycle what you can.

.
10. Tell your friends about this. Spread the word, and together we can make a difference.

Good advice generally - however

1. I prefer to use a toothbrush when brushing my teeth, less chance of lacerating my mouth!

2. Straws are useful, for playing blow football, would you deny us that small pleasure?

3. Even better that saying no to plastic bags. when you reach the checkout, remove all uneccesary packaging there and then.
Eventually the stores might get the message if enough people do this!

4. Just a small query, just how do you turn off the lights when nobody is in the room?

5. Cycle?

6. Agree

7. I hope that you are talking about writing paper here!!!!

8. or use less pressure/power if you have the option. Sounds like you need to use good soap with moisturiser.

9. Tell that to smokers!
