There are many ways I can help the environment. One way is to pick up trash, this is important because it can harm animals if they eat the trash. The leading item that harms animals with trash must be plastic bags. Over one million marine animals are killed every year because of digesting or choking on plastic bags. If other people and I reuse bags or be mindful where the trash goes, more animals would survive. Another way I can help the environment is commuting without a car. Walking and Biking are great substitutes for traveling short distances. While driving a vehicle the exhaust can pollute the air which is bad for the environment. If you are going somewhere long distance and wanna help the environment carpooling is the way to go. Composting is a great way to help the environment because it reduces landfill sizes. Composting can also help soil have more moisture which will help save water.
