As the world ages, top eco activists scrambles for ways to save the dying Gaia. Schools, institutes, homemakers and even companies are doing their part in trying to save the boiling earth. And you may be surprised that a simplest thing such as recycling can not only saves the earth, but also save lessen your financial burden. Below are some ideas to get you through.

Reduce, reuse and recycle. That is the biggest tip any eco-friendly person would advice you on.

If you run your business in the office, the best way you can do your part is to reduce the waste paper. There are times when printed one sided papers became unusable, therefore you can always reuse these piles into waste paper for jotting down notes or even rough sketch workings. Always use double sided when printing, it saves paper and it saves you from forking out more money. Once all the waste paper has been fully used, set it aside for the recycling company to pick it up.

Go Techie. Use email for documents which does not need the importance of printing. Excess printings can increase the paper usage, thus causing more trees to be cut down.

Turn off the lights, air-conditioner and any appliances when not in use. Turning off these fixtures when not in use not only saves you the utilities bills but it also reduces the amount of energy usage produce by power plants. In order to produce electricity, some power plants have to rely on natural resources such as coal, crude oil and even nuclear power to produce enough electricity to support the growing economy. As the world ages, these natural resources will be left exhausted and the waste that is released from these power plants are also hazardous.

Bring you own coffee mug and ditch the Styrofoam cups. These plastics take up to a minimum of one thousand years to decompose. This act can also help reduce the plastic productions and wastes.

Forget the expensive air-purifier and go for the natural one. Bring in the potted plants to the office. Not only do they do well for your landscaping, it also produces oxygen when they photosynthesize.

Used tea bags in your office pantry can become great compost fertilizers for your office potted plants. Although you’d better bury the tea powder in the plant soil to stop the smell that usually will take place when you do compost fertilizing.

Stock up your pantry with local farmer’s produce. Even though not everyone may like vegetables as part of their diet, but it is far healthier than the processed tin foods.

Do your part in saving the earth. Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.

    The machine world functions without soul or conscience, blindly willing to destroy the planetary ecosystem on which it depends. Every Monday morning nearly every person in the Western world wakes up and sets about living in ways that contribute to this destruction. Our livelihoods often depend on it. And even though we know what we are doing we are stymied about what to do instead.
