Every time raw materials must be harvested to produce a new object, supply of another resource is reduced. Recycling uses old products instead of new resources.
Use less plastic.
Choose reusable products made from recycled materials and skip unnecessary items like straws.
Plant native trees, flowers, and vegetation.
Help shore up the natural habitat of the animals that live near you. And skip the pesticides and chemical fertilizers while you're at it.
Eat more plants.
Plants require fewer resources to farm and process than animals.
