Increase consumption taxes, decrease payroll taxes

Higher consumption taxes on raw materials from oil to metals to plastics to wood etc. would give a greater incentive to recycle more and to use less raw materials. This tax increase should be offset by a payroll tax decrease, which would laso favor repair and reuse over using new.

Dogs Indoors

Dogs should be kept inside unless they are on a leashe or trained because they go around digging into other people trash cans and more. So if you really care then you would do so.But I'm not TELLING anyone I'm just ASKING.

Using Less Electricity

We should use less electricity so when we leave a room we should turn off all the lights and if we see a light on in another room and no one is in there we should turn it off also.

Stop Littering

I think that we should stop littering because before you know it you'll be living in your own trash and be forced to evolve.
