With the Flea-Tastic Bazzar organised by JCI Intan in the coming week (24th Oct 09) i stumble across on an page on WWF about what we can do to help our environment. Im a strong believer of protection our environment and our future generation should be nurtured since birth. Do read & practice the below so we can save mother nature.
Please practise these simple steps every day and help to leave our children a living planet.
In Your Home
* Turn off equipment like televisions, computers and stereos when you're not using
them. That little red standby light means they're still using power - and that
means a contribution to global warming.
* Save water: turn off the tap when brushing your teeth.
* Recycle your paper, glass, plastics and other waste.
* Send e-greetings instead of paper cards. Check out the range of free WWF
* Help reduce the world's rubbish dumps - don't use "throw-away" products like paper
plates and napkins, and plastic knives, forks, and cups. Avoid using Styrofoam
cups, plates and boxes – take away your food by bringing your own plastic
container to food stalls and restaurants.
Out & About
* Take your own bags to the shops to carry home your groceries and shopping.
* Look for products with less packaging.
* Buy the most energy-efficient household appliances you can afford.
* Use recycled paper.
* Choose wisely and help stop illegal wildlife trade!
* Do not buy products made from endangered species, such as "tortoiseshell
jewellery" (Hawksbill turtle shell) or ivory.
* Do not eat dishes that include parts of endangered species, such
as sharks fin soup or turtle eggs.
* Do not buy medicines which claim to contain parts of endangered species, such as
pangolin scales, tiger bone or bear bile.
Take your own bags to the shops to carry home your groceries and shopping.
In the Garden
* Collect rainwater to water your flowers.
* Plant local species of trees.
* Never take plants or pick flowers from anywhere in the wild.
