Environment Project..

As a mother of 5 under 8.. It seems I get everthing done at the last minute!!!!
My daughter has a project due tomorrow that is based on ways you can protect the enviroment. She has to draw the ways on a large piece of cardboard.
We have a few ideas but not many. So far we e have: no litering, no wasting water, recycling & driving less. What are some other ways to protect our enviroment? I'm drawing a complete blank..
Any help greatly appreciated! Thx :)
