- When visiting beaches and parks, be sure to take back everything you bring in, so that you can leave places unlettered and undisturbed.
- To pass the time on long drives or rainy vacation days, bring scrap paper for drawing and games.
- Hot summer days make you thirsty. Be sure to recycle your used drink containers. Consider putting a filter on your water tap and refilling bottles with the filtered water. Instead of buying many small drink bottles, buy drink mixes in bulk and fill your reusable bottles.
- Share the ride and the road. Public transportation and carpooling reduce pollution.
