Green products are those products that do not harm the environment, whether in their production stage, usage or disposal. Each time you buy and use green products, such as solar power over generator, energy-saving bulbs, recycled paper etc, you are doing your part in preserving our cherished earth.

3 Recycling and Reusing
By endeavouring to recycle every material that is possible, e.g plastic, paper, glass, metal and re-using same, you are actually practically minimizing wastes threatening the landscape and causing hazards in our environment.
It will help decrease the need for landfill space.

Here are some Very Easy Things You can do to Help our Planet.

1 Movement
When moving (going) to places, (work, occasions etc) or traveling, what is your mode of transportation?
Drink your car, cab, staff bus where possible.

This will result in better air quality and less asthma attacks on the asthmatics.

2 Reduce the waste of water
By turning off water taps while showering and brushing teeth. Most times people let water taps running while brushing or soaping during bath-taking, that is wasting of water.
