Planting trees can be the most important thing to do in order to save the planet and conserve the environment. It is highly beneficial as trees provide a lot more oxygen and food. They help in absorbing carbon dioxide and providing clean air.

Switch to solar energy

One of the best things to do to help restore the planet is to switch to solar or thermal energy.  Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the sun that is converted into thermal and it is the most abundant renewable energy. 

Reduce fish consumption

Overfishing due to the high demand for fish by consumers is one of the greatest cause of climate change similar to overconsumption of meat as well. Overfishing can lead to the destruction of the food chain of marine life and thus, emptying the oceans which can lead to several catastrophic events. Without the oceans, the planet cannot survive. 

Switch to bicycles for commuting short distances

One of the easiest change you can bring to your life in order to restore the planet is by reducing carbon emissions. Vehicles release a lot of carbon emissions into the environment which is harmful to the planet. Switching to bicycles will solve that problem and it will induce fitness as well. 

Practice minimalism

Last but not least, bringing minimalism into our lives is the best way to reduce our impact on the planet. Minimalism simply means owning less stuff and only the item that you need or support your purpose. It is intentionally buying less stuff and living with the things that are necessary.
