1. Limit The Amount Of Water You Use

Don't let the water run when you're brushing your teeth and take shorter showers. There's no reason you should ever be wasting water.

2. Pick Up Trash

Picking up trash is one of the easiest things to do. Plan a beach trip with everyone you know and go to town picking up the garbage you see littered all over the beach. Mother Nature will greatly appreciate it.

3. Purchase A Reusable Water Bottle

Plastic water bottles are beyond harmful to this planet. They almost always end up in landfills and take over 1,000 years to biodegrade. A reusable water bottle is definitely the way to go!

4. Unplug Your Charger When You Aren't Using It

Leaving your phone charger and other appliances plugged in when they aren't in use takes up a TON of energy. Save energy by unplugging all of it, especially if you're going to be taking endless selfies with your bestie!

5. Plant A Tree

Trees provide homes for all the cute little creatures in the world and they help keep the air and water supply clean. The world needs more of them, so do your part by planting one with your friends and fam.
