What you can do to save the planet

Here are some really simple but effective things you can do to help save the planet from the destruction caused by pollution, greenhouse gases and global warming.

  • Make sure all the lights in your house have energy-saving bulbs. Always turn off any lights that aren’t needed.
  • Turn off game consoles, TVs, DVD and video player and stereo completely when you are not using them. If the red stand-by is on, the appliance is still using electricity.
  •  Make sure you and/or your family recycles everything possible. Newspapers, glass, cans, old clothing, cardboard, plastic containers and paper and should be recycled.
  • Don’t throw away old toys, books or CDs that you don’t want any more. You can take them to a local charity shop.
  • Reuse things wherever possible. For example, keep old plastic bags and reuse them again and again. I sometimes use them for small bin liners.
  • Save water. Don’t run taps while you clean your teeth. It is very wasteful. Fill a glass with water to rinse your mouth. Also don’t run a tap to rinse dishes when washing up.
