Recycle everything you can. Do they have recycling plants in your country? Recycle all paper, cans, plastic, cardboard. Try to buy things with minimal packaging. Don't waste electricity. Use florescent bulbs where you can - they save. Make sure when you buy household appliances that you buy the most energy efficient. Unplug appliances when not in use. Turn your heat down and your AC up - even a few degrees difference can mean a lot. Use public transportation or walk when you can. Avoid using chemical cleaners in your home. If you do - try to use minimally and don't throw them in the garbage. Try to repair appliances instead of buying new and throwing out the old - if you do - then recycle the old! These are just a few of the things we can do to save our environment.

Earth is heating up... - Earth is heating up....
Oh, thr r many ways in which u can save the earth. If u smoke, thn u must stop and even tel ur frnds to do so. I hav cut down on my smoking a lot. I even go to the lacol market on my bicycle, earlier i preferred the car. Yes, u can definately plant trees, and encourage others also to do the same. But the environment is only going to get better if everyone joins hands for this noble cause otherwise the situation mite get worse. The govt. has to take serious steps towards this cause.

everyone has to do their part. we really have to strive harder. but suffice to say, people are doing nothing.. esp. those who have no idea about this threat.. i hope we can solve this problem
