Why is there no "om" in this sentence?? I can't seem to figure out which sentences should be "te" and which should be "om te" in Dutch.... seems to work a bit different than in German??

You can use them both they are equally the same. I would write it like this : "We hebben geprobeerd om het milieu te beschermen." It is personal preference but i think it gives the sentence more structure and lights it up a little bit more

Om has been accepted. That's exactly how I wrote it, and it was accepted. :-)
