Bipolar Weather

One day, its 60 degrees out and we are walking around with just a sweatshirt on. The next day, we walk outside. There's snow. What is going on with our weather?! If anyone doubted we were having global warming issues, they should now. This constantly changing weather is definetly not a sign of a stable global status. So what is it exactly that we can do?
Here are some tips to help with our enviornment:


We can reduce the energy we are using by turning off the lights when we are out of the house.
Cut down from a 20 minute shower to a 15 minute shower.
Unplug some major appliances in your house when going on long vacations.


Use that extra unwanted paper as scratch paper instead of grabbing a fresh sheet of computer paper.
Reuse plastic bags from grocery stores.


You can recycle: papers, plastics, old cell phones, old printer cartriges, water bottles.
Recycling all of these items can help reduce the amount of garbage that piles on our planet, and reduces the amount of resources that we use.

Hopefully more of the world will try harder to work together and get our planet healthy again!
