You can do lots of good things for the earth. Here are ideas to keep in mind.
- Keep Your Neighborhood Clean
If you see trash on the ground, toss it in a trash can.
- Recycle Cans, Bottles, and Paper
Save them at home and at school, and help your family recycle them.
- Help Keep the Air Clean
Ride your bike or walk to school. Too many cars cause a lot of pollution.
- Save Paper
Use both sides of your paper at school and at home.
To clean up messes, use sponges or washable cloths instead of paper towels.
- Help Save Water
Don't leave the water running while you brush your teeth.
- Help Save Energy
Turn off the lights when you leave the room.
Turn off the TV when you're finished watching it.
Don't leave the refrigerator door open. Get what you want quickly.
And Remember . . .
Don't ever think you're not important to our earth. You are!
