    Protecting the environment and improving environmental quality require many hands. Individual actions alone are not enough; it requires collaboration and cooperation among many people and a desire to act not merely out of self-interest but also for the wellbeing of others.

    I often do this with the fruits and veggies that I eat, which tend to either be kinds that are typically eaten whole anyway or which look strange but taste fine when eaten whole (like carrots, potatoes and peppers). For things like onions, I may use a trick my father used when I was a child, which was to grill them with the skins on.
