1. Don’t throw trash!

Don’t throw it into the street, into the woods, into the rivers, into the seas! If you throw trash away, it doesn’t go away, ever. Trash comes back, in so many ways, and none of them good.

2. Sort your trash!

In the Clean World everything used is sorted and that’s how we reduce trash. It is one of the best ways to re-use resources. In the Clean World we hope to eliminate landfills and view trash as a valuable source of new resources.

3. Don’t throw anything away. Anything!

When something is broken, try to fix it! If you can’t, then recycle it! If you don’t need something, think of a new use for it or give it to somebody who might need it. Everything that you may no longer require could be valuable elsewhere. Think, before you dispose.

4. Don’t burn trash!

Burning trash seems an easy option. However, when you burn trash, it returns many toxins to the environment. Look to re-cycle your trash… Don’t burn it!

5. Compost food leftovers!

Food leftovers should not be thrown away, but composted. In the Clean World there is a compost next to every house for every community.

6. Consume only as much as you really need to!

In the Clean World people regard consumption as the last resort. Repair as much as possible. Don’t let fashion or technology affect your opinions.

7. Avoid using disposable products that generate trash!

Glass bottles filled with drinks really are environmentally ‘better’. Instead of plastic bags, use bags made of fabric. Products are consumed more reasonably in the Clean World.

8. Buy trash free products!

Avoid products that are excessively packaged. Choose to buy durable products that will last. In the Clean World there are totally recyclable products.

9. Support environmentally friendly legislation and actions!

Vote for laws that support environmentally friendly produced goods, from farmers’ markets or directly from the producer. Cut out the marketing and packaging. In the Clean World we buy responsibly.

10. Co-operate with others by suggesting alternatives!

Be yourself but make sure your friends can see your example. In the Clean World everybody is responsible. Be different by making your friends enjoy the Clean World.
