• Turn off equipment like televisions and stereos when you're not using them. That little red standby light means they're still using power - and that means a contribution to global warming.
  • Save water:
    - turn off the tap when brushing your teeth.
    - collect the water used to wash vegetables and salad to water your houseplants.
  • Call your local government to see if they have a disposal location for used car batteries and other hazardous household wastes.
  • Recycle your paper, glass, plastics and other waste. Call your local government to find out if they offer a collection service.
  • Use rechargeable batteries.
  • Send e-greetings instead of paper cards.
  • Help reduce the world's rubbish dumps - don't use "throw-away" products like paper plates and napkins, and plastic knives, forks, and cups.
