What can we do
I am really glad reading that you do care about the environment, I am impress reading the things you are already doing to preserve this beautiful planet where we live in. It seems to me that you are willing to do even more, so I am going to propose a few more easily implementable things. Every little thing counts, at least I firmly believe so, perhaps you may do even more!!
Say no to plastic bags: The plastic bags you bring home probably end up in a landfill.Reducing your contribution to plastic-bag pollution is as simple as using a cloth bag instead of wasting plastic ones.
900 million tress every year become pulp and paper: We can reduce that number by buying more recycled paper. It uses 60% less energy than virgin paper
Reduce packaging:You can reduce the amount of packaging with a little consumer vigilance. For example: give back the extra napkins or unwanted sugar packets.
And you may even persuade your parents to:
Pay bills online: Eliminating your paper trail by banking and paying bills online does more than save trees. It also helps reduce fuel consumption by eliminating their transport.
Cut down on your water consumption by installing a water saving shower cap, it would be even better if we could all shorten our showers.
I suppose there is a basic principle we should always keep in mind: CONSUME LESS
