Just imagine the possibilities, if all of us only got our ideas together.
Share yours with us. Let's work together to make our world a nicer place to live in - cleaner, greener...actually - just better.
We can grow small plants in unused water bottles and they can be hanged on wall.It looks beautiful and can be maintained as a wall decoration.
Save on transportation by starting a little carpool with friends or co-workers. Even if only three or four people ride in one car, it's that many less on the road.
Recycle your paper, plastic and glass. Reuse when possible. Some of those pickle and jam jars make great drinking glasses or candle holders. Use the other side of your paper before putting it in the recycling bin.
Take shorter showers and turn that water off in between brushing your teeth, shaving and washing your face.
Support local farmers by purchasing their produce. The farmers market is a great place to find some fresh produce save money and meet some neighbours. By going for locally grown food you also save on unnecessary transportation that helps cut down on burning fossil fuels.
Bring those reusable bags to the grocery store. If you tend to forget and you're driving, keep a few in the trunk at all times.
Consider healthy lifestyle changes like quitting smoking and getting more exercise by walking sometimes instead of driving. Both contribute to improving your own health by getting more exercise and towards others by creating less pollution.
Make your own cleaning products or purchase green cleaners. You would be surprised at how well vinegar can cut grease, break up lime, make things shiny, and clean without all the harsh chemicals.
Plant a little garden and grow some organic fruit, vegetables or herbs. Even a balcony can hold a little potted garden nicely. Raspberries, strawberries, onions, carrots, chives and basil
are examples of easy things to grow.
Donate your clothing to a thrift store or check to see if anyone you know could use it if it's still in good condition. If you're a crafter, make a fun bag out of those favorite old jeans you can't bear to throw out.
Tell us how you use the 3R principle in real life. How and what do you Reuse, Recycle, Reduce? Have you worked with a group of people to create a greener neighborhood? Do you carpool?
