6 Things You Can Do To Save the Environment In 3.5 Minutes


earth

While there are many longer-term lifestyle changes that we all ought to adopt (like composting, driving fewer miles, using less water, etc), here are 6 things that you can do in 3.5 minutes to save our planet without leaving your chair:

  1. Save a tree, stop junk mail. We all know about the Federal “Do Not Call” list – but unfortunately, there’s no such list for junk mail. However, you can sign up with DMAchoice.org to eliminate up to 80% of junk mail sent to your home. The trees will thank you, and it takes only 90 seconds.
  2. Petition for expanded public transit. There are many benefits to expanded public transit – including a dramatic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and decreased dependence on foreign oil. Signing this petition takes just 15 seconds.
  3. Act now to save our oceans. In just 20 seconds, you can contact all your elected officials and urge them to take action to preserve this precious resource for generations to come.
  4. Map public transportation routes online. From Rhode Island to San Francisco, Google Transit provides step-by-step directions for using subways, street cars and bus routes! All the schedule and station information is built in. Drive less and live more by mapping out your work and travel routes in 25 seconds.
  5. “Greenify” your computer in less than one minute. Go to your “Control Panel” (Mac users should access “System Preferences”) and switch your desktop or laptop to a “power save” setting. Modify your preferences so that your computer automatically goes into a low power or sleep mood when idle.
  6. Realize that one person can make a difference. The average American will generate 52 tons of garbage by age 75, uses 24 barrels of oil a year and goes through 4,836 gallons of fresh water a month. In zero seconds, you can understand the impact that you have on this planet and your ability to make a difference.

  5. This is really amazing… I am really into saving the planet because there is only one, and its ours so we need to take care of it! We only have one chance to make a difference in this world… our countries need to unite and act as one to help. We need to educate the public because alot of people don’t care and see how big this proble really is, so Annah… I agree with you complitly! 🙂

    project is to help the planet from heating up and going to waste without harming anything else and there are real ways to do this. (the idea) is the first step in the process. …without the idea nothing would get done.we control satellites and they do mutifunctions for us and they are the key to stopping the planet from heating up plus control the weather to some degree. it is possible if we want it to happen. all the satellites have to do is blow smoke in space as crop duster do for plants. the smoke would blanet the planet and stop harmful elements from reaching us. since lead stops radiation if some how we put tiny pieces of lead within the smoke it would also help there are rings around other planets that stay for several year and that is somewhat my idea put a shield around our planet to protect us we have the ability to do it. i just have the idea…i am not the scientist that will put it all together. the future is yours protect it!

  13. you can probally find many ways with saving the earth…………(exampleA.) You can recycle so many things that can be return back to you. you can turn off your fossil without using you also can turn off your bathtub after half way filled up. etthis is kinda what i would do to save my planet or enviorment BY:stormy-kamiel…..TO:CLF
