2. Recycle everything you can, recycle plastic bottles, paper, aluminium cans, your old car or your old pc.

3. Save water. The drinking water is not measureless. For example, install a low-flow toilet.

4. Plant some trees or buy some pots. Also, don’t use synthetic fertilizers, use compost instead or another natural way which sometimes is more efficient than fertilizers.

5. Watch the temperature. If you can’t get rid of your air conditioners, lower your temperature and change your filters frequently.

6. Use eco-friendly appliances that consume less and save money. Let’s say you want to buy a new refrigerator. Buy the one with the “energy-star” logo. Also change your incandescent lamps with Compact Fluorescent Light lamps which last longer and reduce your electricity bills.
