Eat organic, local and less meat and try to take only what you can eat. Walk as much as you can, use a bike, carpool and use public transportation whenever feasible. Reduce, reuse, recycle and buy second-hand. Save water and energy and think carefully when shopping. Consider your needs and items’ reusability, eco-friendliness and fate. Be proactive and be part of the solution.
