Use water rationally.

Collect rainwater to water your  plants.

Change lightbulbs

Change your lightbulbs to florescent, these are low consuption and energy saving.


Turn it off!

Turn your computer off during the night and when not in use.  Do the same with other appliances.


Recycle Glass

Recycle glass.  Did you know:  It takes one million years to decompse and is responsible for 20% of air contamination and 50% water contamination.
