If possible, do your best to grow your own vegetables and raise your own poultry, and do not use herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers or antibiotics.
If possible, in the open space near the place you live and work do your best to
plant trees and grow them to maturity.
Use observation, reading, writing, household work, art and time with family and friends to lead a meaningful life; do not rely on consumption and travel to fill empty spaces in life.
Use money saved through environmental protection for culture, education, household services and other non-material ,consumption; also use this money to buy organic foods and long-lasting, high quality goods that future generations can inherit. Do not buy a bigger house and luxury cars.
Most importantly, only have one child. This will allow our population to return to a level that the earth can bear.
Every day record how many pounds of goods the family buys, and at the end of
the year, total these numbers. Compare the year-end total to the total body weight of the family and to last year’s year-end number.
At the end of the year calculate the family’s total reduction of CO2 emissions and tell other friends this number. This will increase people’s interest in environmental protection. If you use the asure that one large tree absorbs 18.3kg of CO2 to calculate the family’s CO2 reduction, then you can make people even more excited about environmental protection. If your environmental behaviors could be converted into 200 tree planting every year, then you have become a real "earth citizen"!
