Protecting Our Planet Starts with You


Ten Simple Things You Can Do to Help Protect the Earth

  • Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three "R's" to conserve natural resources and landfill space.

  • Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.

  • Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.

  • Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.

  • Choose sustainable. Learn how to make smart seafood choices at www.fishwatch.gov.

  • Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.

  • Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room!

  • Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.

  • Don't send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.

  • Bike more. Drive less.
