4. Always recycle:

 

Recycle everything you can like: bottles, used wire hangers, shampoo bottles, your old electronics… Most of us already recycle, but if the recycle bin is not close by, we just put it in the trash. Next time make the effort, it can go a long way!

5. Less Meat:

 

Not only is meat really expensive, but it hinders the environment. Did you know that it requires 2 500 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef? Have a vegetarian meal day at least once a week. That way, you'll save money and help the environment.
