Do NOT Litter:
Littering is the improper disposal of trash and it is one of the main culprits in ruining the image of our country and vandalizing its environment. This is why you should never throw trash except in its designated locations.
Sort Your Trash:
Sorting your trash can prove to be very useful as it helps divert waste from landfills and incineration. Although many Arab countries still do not have designated recycling bins, you can still sort your trash in your own home and try to make a difference.
Try to Be Creative:
Many broken things around the house can be turned into useful items. So don’t be in a rush to throw out that broken pencil or that broken glass. Check out this post for more creative ideas for recycling broken or worn out things.
Compost Food Leftovers:
Food leftovers could be used in a variety of ways around the house and in the garden. Some food leftovers can be used as fertilizers and actually have more nutrients than synthetic fertilizers. Home composting made easy offers a variety of ways on how you can safely compost food leftovers.
Don’t buy more than you need, don’t cook more than you eat and don’t use more than you have to. Try to always be a conscious consumer and think about your country and its environment first. Also, try to avoid using products that generate trash as much as possible.
Set An Example:
Raise your kids to understand the importance of our environment and its cleanliness. Since their early childhood years, try to educate them on the benefits of having a clean country for them and for the future generations to come.
