    I do what I can to conserve,

    recycle and reuse. It makes me sad to see deforestation, wildlife extinction, more development and less open spaces. I don't understand why humans control the population of all other animals, yet ignore the overpopulation of the most destructive, invasive species...US.

    I always try to do my part by recycling

    and reusing whatever I can to protect the environment. The company I work for also believes in protecting the environment. We recycle a lot of the materials we don't use like cooper, paper, soft plastic, hard plastic and cardboard.
