  8. 8. Idea to Help<br /><ul><li>Sort out your rubbish.
  9. 9. Use recycled paper to help save trees.
  10. 10. Try to avoid buying plastic. It's hard to recycle.
  11. 11. One way to cut down on plastic is to refuse to use carrier bags
  12. 12. Don't buy over-packed goods. Many things we buy have unnecessary amounts of plastic and paper around them.
  13. 13. Never buy products made up of tropical hardwoods e.g. mahogany and teak. It is better to buy only pine, oak, ash or beech because they can be replaced</li></ul>        <br />
  14. 14. <ul><li>Use less energy by switching off lights when rooms are not in use, not wasting hot water, not overheating rooms and not boiling more water than necessary when making a cup of tea!
  15. 15. Use a bicycle or walk instead of using a car for short trips.
  16. 16. If you spot pollution, such as oil on the beach, report it to the local council.
  17. 17. If you use chlorine-based bleach or detergents containing phosphates you are contributing to water pollution. Try to buy 'environmentally-friendly' products.
  18. 18. Don't buy aerosols containing CFCs. Actually, it's not a good idea to buy any aerosols. Even 'ozone friendly' aerosols may contain harmful chemicals and spray cans are difficult to dispose of - they cannot be recycled.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Don't buy aerosols containing CFCs.

  19. 19. Don't waste electricity. Electricity is produced by burning coal, oil and gas and this action gives off carbon dioxide.
  20. 20. Car fumes produce carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide - so try to cut down on car journeys if possible. Use a bike or walk - it's good exercise for you too!
  21. 21. In many countries souvenirs made from rare wildlife are available - never buy shells, coral or things made from elephant ivory, rhino horn or cat skin etc.
  22. 22. Avoid using chemical sprays in the garden - some of these can be poisonous to wildlife. </li></li></ul><li>English<br />Teacher: Susana Nunes<br />Paula Pais Nº6 9ºCEF<br />
