  • Protecting the environment by disposing of litter thoughtfully to preserve the naturalness and beauty of the landscape.
  • Conserving our non-renewable resources for the benefit of future generations.
  • Striving to reduce, reuse, recycle and recover all of our resources.
  • Assisting in the reduction of impacts that change the Earth’s natural processes.
  • Taking part in activities and projects that encourage education through nature and the environment, learning about nature and environment, and action for nature and environment.
  • Enjoying nature in all its beauty and encouraging others to do the same.
  • Thinking globally and acting locally.
