⇒ Eat those that are lower on the food chain (e.g. vegetable etc.),
⇒ Do not waste food,
⇒ Buy more locally produced food etc.

• Be energy efficient:
⇒ Use energy efficient electric devices (e.g. energy efficient light bulb, energy efficient washing machines etc.),
⇒ Whenever possible use alternative energy sources (e.g. solar panel etc.)
⇒ When not in use, do not keep your devices in standby mode, turn them off instead.
⇒ Do not waste water (close the tap when not in use),
