There are numerous things we can do to reduce our impact on the ecosystem, and the first step is to self-evaluate.  Let me explain in a little more detail.

Collectively, many of us contribute to the negative effects the ecosystem is suffering from.  This is generally due to the modern world's non-sustainable way of living.  Here are some things you can do to reduce your individual impact on the ecosystem.

Think about your carbon emissions

You can reduce your carbon footprint by using public transport rather than driving on your own.  Share car rides with your friends and family, and consider buying a bicycle to be really eco-friendly!


Try to be less wasteful by recycling anything you're able to.  Paper and metals are great examples of materials that should be recycled within your home. 

Save water

A great way to reduce your individual impact is to save as much water as possible.  There are some really awesome products that can half the amount of water your toilet uses, as well as ones that slow down the amount of water your shower pumps out.

Be smart at the store

There are a large amount of eco-friendly products to buy these days, including washing powders, fabric conditioners, soaps, toilet paper, and much more.  All of these items add up to one big reduction in impact.
