What I’ve done in the past to become a better steward of the environment is I have participated in community clean-ups and cemetery clean-ups. In the future i want to change policies for smoke free parks. An estimated 4.5 trillion of the annual 6 trillion cigarettes sold worldwide do not end up in a dust bin or ashtray, but are simply flicked away along roadside or on pavement. The ban on indoor smoking may have exacerbated this. (Source: Current Environmental Heath Reports) Also I’d like to raise awareness about the Rio Yaqui water rights issue.
