Environmental protection solutions

Trees are one of the most important and largest components of the earth. Therefore, in order to protect the environment, we should not cut down trees, but we should plant trees on different occasions. It is recommended that people reduce paper consumption, as large numbers of trees are cut down each year to produce a variety of paper, causing extensive damage to the planet. Also they can protect earth from some items such as plastics and plastic bottles by recycling and reusing them.
