There are a number of ways by which we can do so:

1.Try to minimize use of non-biodegradable products such as plastics, polythene, etc.

2.Buy only CFC-free air conditioners/refrigerators to stop harmful gas emission.

3.At work, always try to convinve authorities(especially in industries) to install device such as scrubbers,plate towers,cyclone separators,elecrostatic precipitators(ESPs) to prevent emission of SO2,CO2,etc. to the atmosphere.

4.By minimizing use of private cars, and using bikes,carpool or just walking to your destination.

5.Make sure you are aware of the 3Rs - Reduce,Reuse,Recycle.

6.Actively participate in environmental debates and report to proper authorities if any development in the locality is unsustainable to the environment.

7.Eat more organic food, and try to construct landfills at your yard.

use electric cars, carry out FGD( flue gas desulfirisation)  in powerstations so that no harmful and pollutant gasses r released into the atmosphere. Use quicklime also in powerstations which absorbs harmful gasses like CO2. Use renewable energy resources to power our vehicles. turn off appliances when not in use. use energy saving bulbs
