The world that surrounds us is the natural habitat not only for human creatures but also for thousands of species of animals, birds, reptiles, and other members of the fauna and the flora, some of which could be even hardly seen. All of these beings fulfill their valuable role in the nature, so that everything functions in a very harmonious way. However, these days, the humanity admits itself as the only competent fellow of the Universe.

The explanation is simple: the less waste is thrown away, the lower pollution levels are. What is more, opt for eco-friendly wares. For example, choose paper bags instead of plastic ones. And finally about recycling, cans, glass, batteries and a great number of other little things you have in your houses could be actually converted into something useful. Therefore, remember to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Go on Foot
