Green Tips to Save Mother Earth

Here are some




practical and small ways that could help our planet get a
Dont throw away plastic or polythene pouches
anywhere. Throw them in appropriate container
marked as plastic disposables dustbin.
2. Dont




shower for 10 minutes can waste up to

70 gallons of water, while we can bathe in 2
buckets of 20
3. Dont destroy the

grass covering around your house completely. The

insects and microorganisms will suffer. Also soil erosion will occur heavily in
absence of grass.
4. Dont cut big trees around your house for letting in more sunlight. You can
prune the branches.
5. Dont drive too fast. It will lead more fuel consumption. Also make sure that your
vehicle does not pollute the environment.
6. Dont use inorganic fertilizers or pesticides in your garden and try to treat the
plants by organic materials. This will maintain the soil fertility.
7. Dont buy any illegal wildlife product (fur, bones, nails, feathers). Also stop
buying meats of toise, shark, dolphin, etc., as when buying stops, killing stops,
8. Save power. It can be in form of electricity, petrol, diesel, firewood, etc.
whatever it may be, we are getting it at the expense of natural resources, so
optimum use of power will boost not only our economy, but also our
9. Take steps for hazardous waste management or segregation of waste. The
biodegradable ones can be composted, if you have a terrace or a garden. It is a
brilliant fertilizer if you are fond of plants.
10. Dont release those colorful balloons in the air. For balloons that escaped the
grasps of your hands will get into oceans and seas and they will be mistaken as
yummy jellyfish by sea turtles. Sea turtles take a lot of years to mature and
unfortunately some of them got killed by eating balloons or plastic bags.
11. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Make it a habit to reduce the things we need or
we consume. Purchase only things that we only need and eat only what you
can. Let us do our share not be part of the garbage problem. Reuse all the
things that can still be repaired/fixed or those things that are still okay.
12. Recycle things to conserve our resources, collect old newspapers, books,
magazines, used papers, bottles (plastic and glass), and any other things that

you could sell in junkyards. There is money in garbage and at the same time
were doing our part in recycling process.
13. Be kind to trees. As much as possible use forest products and timber very well
with optimum efficiency. Use both sides of paper. Use pencils until they become
as small as possible, and dont play with matches. Try to get involved in tree
planting in your local conservation program. This could be fun as trees can give
us added oxygen, shades for people and a refuge to different insects and birds.
14. Broken scientific apparatus like thermometer, barometers, manometers,
sphygmomanometers, and float valves and other things that have mercury on
should be disposed properly. Avoid throwing them in rivers for mercury is toxic
and poisonous.
15. Minimize the use refrigerators, foam blowers, solvents, aerosol spray
propellants, fire extinguishers, and chemical reagents for these contains
chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) that are responsible to the climate change and
depletion of our precious ozone layer. Do not burn plastic please. This habit is
also harmful to our ozone layer.
16. Do not buy exotic and endangered animals. These animals are intended to be
in the wild not as mere decorations to your home as pets or playthings.
17. Do not even bother to try eating exotic and endangered animals for they are
not intended to be part of humans diet. Let the other predatory animal do the
stalking and eating. Youre not fit to be a lion. One of the most badly hit by
these humans hunger for delicious foods are the sharks (shark fin soup),
sturgeon (sturgeon rose caviar- are valued for their great taste and one of the
most prized eats in the world), snakes, sea turtles and many other animals.
18. Do not patronized things (coats, purse, belt, etc.)that are made up of an
endangered animal or animal part (like skin, fur, bones, tusks, alders, etc.).
19. Be responsible with your garbage, dispose them properly. Also try to use
segregation scheme with your trashes, separate those decomposable from
those that are not. You may utilized a compost pit to house all of your organic
trashes and eventually use this as your fertilized for your backyard garden or to
your plants.
20. Get active in the community! Encourage others to make these changes and
start working towards a better, more sustainable world. And last, but not the
least SHARE this information.

Something green to do:
1. Research Project: E-Waste
The amount of e-waste (electronic trash) through-out the world continues to
grow. Conduct a research project to learn more about e-waste, its effect,

and how people can work to reduce

1. Ask your teacher or school librarian to
help you find information on e-waste.
Together, come up with a list of things
youd like to find out about e-waste.
Examples of such questions include:
a. What are the environmental issues associated with e-waste?
b. Which countries produced the e-waste?
c. What are the human hazards associated with e-waste?
d. What are countries around the world doing to reduce e-waste?
Create a report that conveys important information about e-waste. The
report could be in the form of a booklet, poster, collage, blog, podcast, or
a combination of media. You may wish to include information about
recycling electronics in your local community.
2. Organize a Cleanup Day
Protecting animal habitats and the environment can begin right in your
community. Together with family and friends you can organize a cleanup
day in nearby local parks, beaches, or nature.
Garbage bag
Rubber gloves
Poster board
A group of family, friends, and community members
1. Once you have chosen a day to hold the event, create posters that
give information about your cleanup day. Include details such as the
day, place, time, and reason for the event. Get permission to hang
these posters at school and at local businesses. You may also want

to include a rain date in case weather prevents your cleanup day

from taking place.
2. On the day of the event, distribute garbage bags and gloves to
volunteers, and assign areas for people to cover. When the event is
over, you can take the collected garbage to waste a center in your
3. Keeping Earth clean is a continuous process. Be sure to hold
cleanup days regularly in your community.
