Plant a tree

Trees produce oxygen and provide shelter for birds, so planting one is a great way of giving back.

Clean up litter

Whether you pick up litter outside the office or around your neighbourhood, you will have a cleaner environment and contribute to making the environment better.

Replace your wheels with your legs

Give your car a break and offset your carbon footprint – take a walk!

Educate yourself

Learn about your environment, climate change and how you can make a difference. Often, you will find that it doesn’t take much to make a difference.

Eat organic

Organic produce can be expensive, so if you can’t afford it, plant your own garden. You can start small with tomatoes or a peach tree.
