What can we do at the personal level to save the environment?

1. Save water

Small efforts can make a big difference while brushing your teeth switch off the tap. Fix your faucet as that helps to reduce a large amount of water wastage. Stop drinking bottled water and opt for tap-filtered water.

2. Reduce the usage of paper in life

Reduce paper usage in your daily life. Timber is mostly used to produce paper, which poses a risk to the natural habitats. Try going paperless in whichever way you can, opt for online bank statements.

3. Use the public transport system

Opt for biking or walking as obvious ways to reduce your carbon footprint. This helps to keep your body fit. If walking is not possible make use of public transit.

4. Say no to plastic

Take reusable bags to the grocery, and avoid using disposable plates, glasses, spoons, and napkins. They create huge amounts of waste. Use products made of recycled materials.

5. Trash things carefully

Recycle your kitchen trash in a careful way. Make a list of how many times things can be reused rather than simply throwing them away.
