Can you imagine a world without panda bears or tigers? Well, that can become a reality if we don't do anything to stop it. Help encourage species from becoming threatened and endangered by conserving natural resources that are readily available in your yard and in the yards of others.
Mow less often
Keeping your lawn tall allows the grass to retain more water and shades the soil from the brutal sun.
You want your lawn to be hydrated, but you don’t want to drown it. Limit watering to three times a week (less if rain is in the forecast).
Use this scientific experiment to raise awareness.
Imagine what it would be like if you were forced to rely on the bodies of water near your house to help you cook, do laundry, even simply drink water. Raise awareness with your classmates by conducting this exercise that educates people about the struggle to find water in the developing world.
Help protect companion animals by fighting against the puppy mill industry.
Puppy mills are large commercial breeding facilities where living conditions for animals are inhumane. Think of it like a factory for animals: dogs are a product made for profit. They are kept in small cages their entire lives in unsanitary conditions without attention, let alone love, and are bred as often as possible. Not surprisingly, this can lead to tons of health problems.
We've all got that shirt or pair of pants that's been collecting dust in the back of our closet. Well good news: you don't really have to part with it. Host a clothing swap with your friends! And if you swap, you can also avoid buying more stuff that requires energy and resources to produce.
Start the party
Arrange somewhere for everyone to meet, preferably a home where there's room for people to try clothes on.
