Recycle empty glass, cans, and paper.
But There are things YOU can do to prevent natural resource waste and pollution!
Write on the back of used papers instead of getting new paper.
Turn of your electronics at night. No one is there to use them anyway!
People who care
Littering
Erosion
Depletion
Pollution
If you haven't already noticed, there are alot more bad things than good.
All these little things add up to a big difference.
"Going green" doesn't have to be this HUGE task that means intense life changes. Simple things can make a difference.
Shout Out!
YOU can make a difference.
There are people who volunteer to help the environment.
People volunteer to pick up waste.
People volunteer to help after oil spills.
Pollution and wasting natural resources doesn't only effect people, though. You remember that plastic bag you threw out into the wind last week? Yeah, one, littering, two, TOTAL resource waste.
All that waste goes somewhere.
People are slowly ( ok, not so slowly) using up our natural resources by polluting water, air, deforestation, etc.
NOT GOOD!!!!
You're saving power/energy!
You're saving glass (which comes from sand), paper (tree pulp), and metal!
You're saving trees!
You're stopping water and soil pollution!
