We declare that we are going to do our best to go green in the future. It will mean reducing wastein every way. Too much of what's convenient is also bad for the environment. We also declarethat our eco friendly actions are more than just a gesture. We will strive to walk instead of driving,going easy on the gas when we are driving, changing out our light bulbs, using reusable water  bottles. Some other ways are to go green are to print less, use less plastics, recycle, plant a tree,grow your own vegetables, print only if necessary, off the lights and water when not in use. Allthis will makes a huge difference.
