LEARN. Read about and follow the news on climate change. Knowledge is power.
Ask your family if they can SWITCH to an energy provider that uses renewable sources.
PLAN. Can your family reduce, reuse and recycle more efficiently?
SHARE. Use libraries, public transport and car pools to reduce your carbon footprint.
REDUCE consumption. Try to buy second-hand rather than new products.
RECYCLE properly. Investigate where you can recycle different items in your local area.
