  1. Instead if discarding them, think of new ways to reuse old things. Your child’s art can become wrapping paper, plastic trays make great storage, and empty soda or milk containers work well as planters.

  2. Check the air in your tires and you could save fuel! Keeping tires inflated properly can improve gas mileage by more than 3%.

  3. I recycle everything I can at home and at work.

  4. Plan your errands in advance in order to increase fuel efficiency. Consider running errands in a group if you and your friends/neighbors need to visit the same places.
