By now, we all know the importance of helping the environment and protecting our planet. Here are 10 easy to do steps that could have a positive impact for future generations.

1. We'll start with an easy one switching off appliances when we're not using them. From your TV to your toaster, this could help reduce the energy your home uses.

2. You can also help by not letting the water run when brushing your teeth. Fill a cup and use that to rinse, or just run the tap when you use the water.

3. Another great way to reduce the amount of water you use is to avoid overfilling the bath.

4. It's a good idea to create a recycling plan for your home and workplace. By taking charge, you can bring about positive changes, such as using recycling bags or the appropriate council bins.

5. If there's a walkable journey, make sure you walk it. Avoid taking unnecessary car journeys, such as driving the kids to school, when you can walk it in a reasonable time.

6. Consider using public transport to get to and from work. Not only will you save yourself money, but it will also help reduce the number of vehicles on the road.

7. Perhaps the easiest way to do your bit is to close fridge door when you taken something out of it, rather than leaving it open while you use the item. When a fridge door is opened for a while, it it starts to warm up inside. It then uses energy trying to re-establish its temperature when the door's shut.

8. One way to do your bit is to plant a tree. We all use paper products from time to time and while many of the companies behind them have taken on the responsibility of replacing the trees they use, we can also help out by planting one, too.

9. Don't throw out your old clothes, give them to a charity shop or hand them down to others. By getting more use out of products, there will be less waste.

10. Energy-saving light bulbs should be installed in offices and homes to help cut down the unnecessary levels of energy that are used by regular ones.

From recycling bags to light-bulbs, it's vital that each and every one of use does something to help the environment and planet. And why stop with these 10 suggestions? You may want to use a compostable paper sack or reusable transit covers to go one step further with your recycling.
