Ten ways to save the planet (or should that be the human race?)

Re-use, Recycle and R??

Maybe restrain?

My ten are:

1. Stop using plastics or paper to produce packaging.
I see all these plastic bottles on the shelves in the supermarkets and reckon they are gonna take over the planet.

2. Stop cutting down trees
Trees along with other crops balance the carbons which cars, planes, dishwashers and anything electrical create.

3. Stop companies poluting the seas and the rivers

4. Stop building houses etc on green land

5. Stop building nuclear power stations

6. Use more wind and solar power

7. Use bags that can be recycled

8. Only use recycled paper for greetings cards and newspapers

9. Only use cars that are battery powered and make them financially accessible to all.

10. Reduce the carbon foot print with respect to travel

Any more? If you can add to the list please do! If you know of any other schemes that are in place then please add them too.

I agree with all of them. If only I had a magic wand I would make it all happen yesterday :)

I honestly don't know. . . I wish I did.

One little way we all can make a difference is using recyclable shopping bags, rather than grocery sacks at the grocery store. It's something little that makes a big difference.

Thank you for the comments on a difficult subject.

I agree with you Tabitha about the magic wand! And with you Steph about recycling the bags. It is the simple steps we take to help that matter.
