I garden and grow
In my garden or home, I prefer native plant species.
I prevent invasive species from being spread. In this way, I help preserve local species such as earthworms.
I set up my garden to accommodate local fauna: I plan wild land areas and plant flowers for bees, I leave dead branches, I prefer natural hedgerows rather than fences, I prune outside nesting periods, etc.
I provide everything necessary for small animals (birds, small rodents, etc.) to live. In this way, I help preserve endangered species such as the hedgehog.
I use natural products to keep pests away (vinegar, etc.) or grow my local flowers (compost, etc.). If I buy plants in nurseries, I make sure they have not been treated with chemicals.
I limit the pollution of ecosystems by chemicals. In this way, I contribute to preserving pollinators and birds in our countryside.
I use compost for my organic waste.
I limit soil and air pollution associated with landfilling or incineration of my waste. In this way, I help preserve the precious insects in our countryside.
I convince others to do the same.
