It would just be nasty to separate, like, everything with bottles covered in food.
2. reutilizar "to reuse"
Reinventa, reutiliza y recicla lo que quieras. "Reinvent, reuse, and recycle anything you want."
Can you say this? Reinventa, reutiliza y recicla lo que quieras.
Reinventa, reutiliza y recicla lo que quieras.
Try it!
3. proteger "to protect"
Proteger la tierra está en nuestras manos. "Protecting the earth is in our hands."
A little song, I got the whole world in my hand. Copyright!
4. ahorrar agua "to save water"
Tenemos que esforzarnos para ahorrar agua y pensar en soluciones sostenibles. "We must strive to save water and think about sustainable solutions."
By not showering, especially in the winter; one day yes, one day no, who knows?
5. utilizar productos ecológicos "to use eco-friendly products"
¡Utiliza productos ecológicos, te aportará muchos beneficios! "Use eco-friendly products, it will bring you many benefits!"

Si vas en bicicleta, ahorrarás y harás ejercicio. "If you ride a bicycle, you will save and exercise."
I always use my bicycle, it's called the Black Widow because it's black.
8. utilizar focos ahorradores "to use energy-efficient light bulbs"
Usa focos ahorradores, tu bolsillo te lo agradecerá. "Use energy-efficient light bulbs; your pocket will thank you."
Energy efficient light bulbs might cost a little more to buy at the store, but in the long run they last more and they consume less energy.

Puedes desenchufar la cafetera y el televisor, por ejemplo. "You can unplug the coffeemaker and TV, for example."
10. no usar el auto "to not use the car"

Cars are a big source of carbon emissions.
