1. 3 R

Doing 3 R (Reuse Reduce Recycle) can reduce the amount of waste generated, reduce what is produced and what is consumed. Reuse items that can still be used for different purposes. Recycle cans, plastic, glass paper.

2. Save water and electricity

It takes energy to produce water and electricity. For that we can save it by using enough lights or electronic equipment, buying energy-efficient gadgets can reduce your daily energy consumption.

3. Plant lots of trees

The benefits of trees in life are to provide us with oxygen, make wood, prevent soil erosion, control floods, and provide protection for wildlife. So there is nothing wrong with planting more trees to make the earth clean and environmentally friendly.

4. Protect local water sources

Hazardous waste materials such as paint, oil, ammonia and other strong chemical solutions should not be dumped on the ground as they will seep into the groundwater. Join a local water conservation group and fight water pollution that dumps their industrial waste into rivers.

5. Drive Less, Walk More

A simple but more effective way to live an eco-friendly life is to use public transportation for daily travel needs. And if it's close, there's nothing wrong with walking, it's not only good for the earth but walking is also good for your body.

6. Buy Energy Saving Products

Energy-efficient products with energy ratings from 5 consume less energy and are proven to be environmentally friendly. For example, CFL bulbs consume 40% less energy and last 10 times longer than traditional bulbs.

7. Buy local products

Buying products that you buy from home, the less it leaves a carbon footprint.

8. Buy Recycled Products

Always pay attention to the recycling symbol when visiting stores to buy items for the home. It will make it environmentally responsible and environmentally friendly. Also, try to carry a grocery bag with you to avoid buying things in plastic bags that end up in landfills.

9. Don't waste food and eat less meat

When food and discarded foodstuffs rot, of course, increasing levels of CO2 in the air. The United Nations says the livestock sector contributes 9% of CO2, but produces a much larger greenhouse gas, namely 65% of nitric oxide, which increases CO2. As a result, the potential for global warming is 296 times.

No need to be 100% vegetarian or vegan, just reduce meat consumption 2-3 times a week.

10. Don't use plastic straws and carry shopping bags

Plastic straws contribute to waste that is difficult to decompose. So you should use iron or wooden straws that can be used many times. And when shopping, it's a good idea to bring a tote bag to store groceries so we can reduce our use of plastic.
