My eco footprint diary

This a diary of what I'm going to do to help the enviroment.

  • Firstly I will put my clothes on the line instead of in the dryer.
  • Also I will turn off the playstation when I'm not using it.
  • I will limit my showers to a couple of minutes.
  • Turn off the light when I'm not in a room.
I hope you make a change for the better too!!
