Solar, geothermal, wind, water there’s tons of renewable energy sources. The most common is solar, there are even programs where if you have a house in the right spot, with the right roof, you can get solar for free. Geothermal would be easiest through compost and growing a gas you can burn. Wind is self explanatory, wind turbines allow you to obtain kilowatts anytime the wind blows.

The best way to support the Earth that every human has the ability to do if they eat is compost! It’s so easy to pick up the left overs and put it in a pile. Though there are some rules of composting. Such as, you can put pasta or meat in your compost. These things mess up the biology. Quite frankly, nobody should be eating meat anyways.

Some other things to watch are citrus & oils, these things can be composted, but in high amounts can effect your plant growth.

I know this is a typical one, but not enough people do this including myself. Recycling is sometimes out of the way unless you have a blue or grey trash bin and the company does the rest for you. Honestly, if you have a trash company, you should be recycling. But if you don’t, recycling is usually way out of the way. Regardless, save your batteries and things that can’t go in the trash and throw them away on a hazardous waste day in a city near you. If you have paper products you can compost them in a separate compost pile that you can use for non edible plants.
