This is a collection of basic thoughts and facts around what you and me can do in general, to help the nature.
And a bit about what we shouldn't do as well.
Well; there might be a third: The less rich, but very aware consumer.
As I ended
And this is some of the
smaller ideas, that might help in the big picture. Saving energy, only using
what needed, recycling and respecting the nature in general, are some
of the key-words.

What I would
suggest as ways to get along with nature and the Earth it selves
In a average household in the rich parts of the world, huge amounts of trash are removes constantly. Was it really necessary to produce, transport and finally trash it? Could the consumers have done with less wrapping and goods? The nature sure would have benefited from NOT producing this!
At the same time, people
could have worked less and enjoyed life more, along with family,
relaxing, exploring the wild or whatever bring a smile on their face
- without endless consuming.
What I Do to
electronics and other power consuming equipment are shoot off, not
on stand-by. Actually; I only have one light sources, a 10W halogen
bulb. I use a laptop PC, and turn it off after use. No TV.
I use public transport or walk if possible - else; I use a small second hand car, doing 33kl/l = 76 M/Gal.
I wash my cloth in a efficient machine, saving power and water.
I dry my cloth by air, not tumbler.
I only use the oven rarely, filling it completely if I do.
I don't buy things I can do without.
I buy quality which last, no "buy and throw-out stuff".
| What I
I am harsh to the environment, flying around the world. But: I only fly around to give a hand to conservation projects. And I stay there for months.
I am always cold, and I shouldn't live in this cold Danish climate! I try not to, during the winters, but that brigs me back to point one...
I am borrowing CDs on the public library instead of buying. Radio is another possibility, I just don't seem to find a station I like.
about thoughts, not a blind religion! I don't believe in saving at
any cost; it should have to be durable.
I have founded a company, working with conservation: HT1 ApS.
