  1. Turn off lights.
  2. Turn off other electric things, like TVs, stereos, and radios when not in use.
  3. Use rechargeable batteries.
  4. Do things manually instead of electrically, like open cans by hand.
  5. Use fans instead of air conditioners.
  6. In winter, wear a sweater instead of turning up your thermostat.
  7. Insulate your home so you won't be cold in winter.
  8. Use less hot water.
  9. Whenever possible, use a bus or subway, or ride your bike or walk.
  10. Try to buy organic fruits and vegetables if you're concerned about pesticides. (Organic food is grown without man-made fertilizers and/or pesticides).
  11. Don't waste products made from forest materials.
  12. Use recycled paper and/or recycle it. Reuse old papers.
  13. Don't buy products that may have been made at the expense of the rainforest.
  14. Support products that are harvested from the rainforest but have not cut down trees to get it.
  15. Plant trees, especially if you have cut one down.
  16. Get other people to help you in your cause. Make and/or join an organization.
  17. Avoid products that are used once, then thrown away.
  18. Buy products with little or no packaging.
  19. Encourage your grocery store sell environmentally friendly cloth bags for people to use when they shop, or bring your own.
  21. Compost.
  22. Buy recycled products.
  23. Don't buy pets taken from the wild.
  24. If you have a good zoo nearby, (if the animals are healthy and the zoo takes care of them), support it! Especially if they help breed endangered animals.
  25. Don't buy products if animals were killed to make it.
  26. Cut up your six-pack rings before throwing them out.
