LIST OF THINGS YOU CAN DO TO REDUCE POLLUTION Stop smoking or don't throw your butts on the ground. Drive an electric or hybrid car or at least one that uses unleaded gasoline. Choose to walk or ride a bicycle whenever possible. Never use open fires to dispose of waste, especially chemicals and plastic. Use the power supplied abundantly and freely by wind and sun. Adopt the 3 Rs of solid waste management: reduce, reuse, and recycle. Start composting leaves and clippings from your yard and food scraps from your kitchen to reduce waste while improving your soil. Plant more trees. Say a big "NO" to pesticides and GMOs (genetically modified organisms).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
