We all want to protect our planet, but we're mostly too busy or too lazy to put up big change that would improve our lifestyle and save the environment.

2. Donate:
You have tons of clothes or things you want to get rid of. If they are still usable, give them to someone whoneeds them. You may also choose to give them to associations. These associations may sell them and collect a little money. Not only will you protect the environment, but you will also contribute to a good cause.
3. Turn off your devices: 
When you do not use a house device, turn it off. For example, if you don't watch TV, turn it off. Turn off the light when you leave a room (even if you intendto return.) It's an easy habit to take up which will help you save a lot of money.
4. Walk or cycle:

5. Detergent:
Follow the recommended dose of detergent to wash your clothes or dishes.
6.leaky faucets:
Watch leaky faucets, which can cause a significant increase in the the water bill. An average of 120 litres of water can be wasted due to a dripping faucet.
