Saving Mother Nature

ALL of us can help to protect Mother Nature. Do you know how? Here are some ways you can do your part.

Reuse and recycle
  • Carry reusable shopping bags to save on plastic and paper bags.
  • Use rechargeable batteries, and recycle them to keep harmful metals from entering the enviroment.
  • Recycle cans, bottles, papers and your old computer.

Reduce wastage
  • Turn off unused lights. It sounds simple, and it is.
  • If you have a dripping tap, ask your parents to fix it. If you stop a tap from leaking one drop each second, you can save 2,700 gallons a year.
  • Dry wet clothes on the clothesline instead of using the dryer machine.
  • Unplug the coffee machine, television and any other electronic devices when they are not being used.
  • Open the windows to let the breeze in instead of using the air-conditioner.
  • Eat at home instead of going out. You can sane money and the petrol required to go out.

Improve the outdoors
  • Plant the trees and vegetables around your house. Cherry tomatoes, for examples, can be planted in a pot. Trees and plants help clean the air we breathe. They produce oxygen and reduce carbon dioxide.
  • Do not litter when you are in public areas such as the beach or the park.
