Ways to Help the Environment
1. Pay attention to how you use water. Every time you turn off the water while you’re brushing your teeth, you’re doing something good.

3. Switch off anything that uses electricity when not in use, If you’re not using it, turn it off. This goes for lights, televisions, computers, printers, and so on.
4. find heaters and fans that have timers on them. So if it’s cold or hot during the night it will switch off for you.
5. Trade in your dryer for a good old-fashioned clothesline. Air drying leaves your clothes smelling fresh and is environmentally friendly.
6. Change your light If every household in Canada replaced one regular lightbulb with one of those new compact fluorescent bulbs, the pollution reduction would be equivalent to removing one million cars from the road.
7. Clean dishes in a dishwasher You’ll use far less hot water than if you washed by hand. For greatest energy efficiency stick to full loads.
