The smallest action can have the greatest impact. Put in practice the three R’s: Reduce, re-use and recycle, plant a tree, minimize paper consumption and ensure you turn off the lights when you leave a room.  Those are small gestures that we can do on a daily basis that will have a long lasting impact.
