I really love trying to protect the world/environment through many ways such as recycling, picking up trash, no polluting and decrease pollution overall, saving animal habitats and so much more.

Share unused portions with neighbors or charities. Donate books to the library, give old clothing to charity, etc. Now we also need to reduce which is includes reducing the amount of total waste by steps such as buying only the amount you need, persuading manufacturers to reduce the amount of packaging they use.
