Ways to Protect the Environment
(NC)-Doing your part to protect the environment doesn't have to be difficult or cost a lot of money. It just takes a willingness to be aware of what you can do to make a lasting impact. You have many options to consider.
Did you know something as simple as avoiding traditional plastic bags in favour of reusable ones make a difference? Millions of plastic bags fill landfill sites, where they can take up to a thousand years to biodegrade. A cloth tote is durable, easy to carry and much more eco-friendly.
Did you know that in a global environment it's important to consider helping those who can't protect their own environment? Charities like Christian Children's Fund of Canada, an international development organization, allow you plant a garden or ensure clean water for poor villages in Africa and South America. A healthy, growing garden and clean water provide nutrients to the soil and makes the land sustainable. More information is available online at www.ccfcanada.ca.
And finally, did you know that you can improve your gas mileage by around 3.3 percent by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure. This will lead to using less gas and save you money in the long haul.
