Problem: Water is a limited natural resource and we may run out of it.
Solution: When going about your daily activities cut down on the amount of water you
use at home. Don’t put trash or other items into the water system by littering
on the street or throwing garbage down the toilet. Keep our water clean!
Problem: Automobiles create a myriad of environmental problems.
Solution: Taking public transportation when ever possible and car pooling are great
ways to cut down on automobile use. Riding a bike is another alternative to
driving a car.
Problem: Unhealthy food choices are not only detrimental to the individual eater, but
also have a negative impact on the environment.
Solution: Seek out locally grown food and local food products whenever possible. This
is better not only for the environment and your body but it helps support the
local economy too.
Problem: Most household waste is dumped into landfills or burned creating problems
for the environment.
Solution: Cut down on waste by composting kitchen scraps, recycling and reusing or
donating unwanted household goods.
