We should take advantage of public transportation or walk whenever possible. We should conserve energy. Turn off lights when we are not in the room. Small steps lead to huge changes. We should use energy efficient devices. Follow the concept of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. We must conserve water as much as possible. We must not waste even a single drop of water because each water drop matters. Use of pesticides and herbicides must be discouraged. The masses should be educated on the danger of different types of pollution.
