Recycle
Recycling converts used or wasted products into new materials extending the life and usefulness of something that has already served its initial purpose. Recycling benefits humans but especially our planet. Recycling saves landfill space, conserves natural resources, prevents pollution, reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change, saves energy and saves water.
Use Reusable Shopping Bags
Plastic bags tend to "fly away" out of cars, trashcans, and landfills, littering our roadways, land and sea. Most plastic bags are made from polyethylene, which is made from crude oil and natural gas (nonrenewable resources). Paper bags weigh a lot more than plastic bags, requiring a lot more fossil fuel to transport them. In addition the US cuts down 14 million trees each year to satisfy demand for paper grocery bags.
Support Anti-Idling
Honor the Idle Free Zones in town and support the “No Idling Resolution” by turning the engine off after 3 minutes. This will help to save money since idling for only 10 seconds uses more gas than it takes to restart the car. It will minimize: Environmental Damage by controlling air pollution caused by CO2 which is a major contributor to global climate change. Health Damage: Vehicle exhaust contaminates the air with harmful particles and chemicals causing most of the respiratory problems in children and adults. We will be preventing 16,000 new asthma cases yearly.
