To be able to conserve our natural environment it is important to keep in the following principles -
1.   Reduce : the amount of things we use
2.   Reuse : the things we have in different forms until we have absolutely no use for them
3.   Recycle: items that are no longer functional.
4.   Rethink: the choices we make when deciding to buy something an
5.   Refuse: things that we do not need at all.
