    प्लास्टिक की थैलियाँ शहरों में ज्यादा प्रदूषण फैलाती हैं, तो पुरानी कपड़े की थैली सामान लेने जाते समय उपयोग में लें। Plastic bags spread more pollution in cities, use the old clothes bag while picking stuff. कपड़े की थैली बार-बार उपयोग में आती है। The clothes bag is used repeatedly. 

    किसी भी पुरानी चीज को फेंकने के बजाय उसका दूसरा इस्तेमाल जरूर सोचें। Rather than throw any old thing, think of its second use. किसी भी पुरानी वस्तु को री-साइकिल करके नई वस्तु बनाने में भी ऊर्जा की खपत होती है तो री-यूज ज्यादा बेहतर है। Re-use is even better when recycling any old item also creates energy in creating new things. 

    और यह भी करें And also do it 
    * एक पौधा लगाओ और उसे बड़ा करने की जिम्मेदारी भी लो। * Apply a plant and take responsibility for it too. 
    * बिजली के बिल में कटौती करने वाले उपाय सोचो। * Think of ways to cut electricity bills. 
    * पुराने बल्ब पर जमी धूल पोंछने पर कमरे में दो के बजाय एक ही बल्ब से काम चल जाएगा। * When wiping dust on the old bulb, it will work with the same bulb instead of two in the room. 
    * गर्म पानी से नहाने की आदत बदलोगे तो भी चल सकता है। * If you change the habit of bathing with hot water then you can also walk
