So choosing products packaged by recyclable packaging or in smaller quantities is undoubtedly a good tip to protect the environment.

2. Turn off electrical appliances

People are so accustomed to being constantly surrounded by electrical appliances that the latter end up blending into the masses. Without realizing it, the televisions remain open, the radio plays, the lights are on, the computers too, in short, everything is turned on but not used. Thinking about turning off lights and unused appliances is a good way to save our energy and so help our beautiful planet .

Instead of throwing away your old furniture or old clothes, if they are still in good condition, why not give them or exchange them? What is no longer good for oneself does not automatically mean that he will not know it for another. Exchanging things instead of throwing away and wasting is another good way to pay attention to our planet.
