- Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you toss away. Keep an eye on the three “R’s” to preserve natural resources and landfill space.
- Conserve water. The less water you expend, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.
- Volunteer. Offer yourself for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.
- Plant a tree. Trees make food and oxygen available. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
- Bike more. Drive less.
