How you can help the environment in your daily life

Global Warming!

How you can help the environment in your daily life

At home, shopping or in the garden - you can make a difference.
Even the simplest everyday activities can make a real difference to the environment. So follow these simple tips and take action for our living planet.

In your home

-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. Check out the range of free WWF e-cards available.
Help reduce the world's rubbish dumps - don't use "throw-away" products like paper plates and napkins, and plastic knives, forks, and cups.
