  Worksheet: Tips for staying green
Updated 05 September 2002, 15.33

We've come up with some easy ways to help save the planet. Re-cycle glass bottles, jars, newspapers and magazines and tin cans. Save them and take them to local re-cycling centres. Re-use plastic shopping bags and envelopes, don't get new ones. Persuade you mum or dad (or whoever does the gardening) to have a compost heap. Put a brick in a plastic bag into your toilet cistern, then the toilet will use less water each time you flush. Use paper on both sides. Try and buy products that don't use much packaging. Give unwanted gifts and clothes to a charity shop. Only fill the kettle up with the amount of water you need to boil that time. Don't leave the TV or video on standby. If you get lift to school in a car, take your mates along for the ride. Ask whoever does your washing to use the machine at 40 degrees, this helps conserve power. Switch lights off when you're not in the room. Get a clockwork mobile phone recharger. Cycle to places! Have showers instead of baths.
