Following a few small tricks in our daily life can help reduce environmental pollution. We are many, and if we learn to take care of the planet we live in, we will also be able to protect our lives and that of our children.
The global warming , environmental pollution and depletion of natural resources, from food to energy, are the real enemies, diseases of our era that threaten the earth as ever, in billions of years, had happened. According to scientists and experts, there is no time to waste: practicing a sustainable lifestyle , starting immediately with small daily gestures, is what we can do to help the Earth and guarantee it a better future. Here are some, simple, effective and important.
HOW TO REDUCE POLLUTION: 10 USEFUL TIPS TO SAVE THE EARTH
- We turn off the lightwhen we leave the rooms, and we don’t leave TV and Computer on Stand By, with the red light: they consume unnecessarily. We replace the old bulbs with LED or fluorescent ones, we keep the fridge at 5 ° C or more and the heating not over 21 ° C, checking that our houses are well insulated. The resources we consume are still largely from oil or gas. They pollute and are not renewable. Unplugging is the first way to consume less,have a cleaner air and a less warm climate.
- We install, if possible, solar and photovoltaic panels. The technologies for collecting and using renewable energy from the sun, wind or tides are increasingly cheaper and more effective, and the more we use them, the more we can avoid polluting emissions by reducing the need for oil and geothermal gases.
- Let’s move on foot. To reduce pollution we use the car less and prefer public transport or the bicycle, which keeps fit and does not pollute. Internal combustion engines are still one of the major causes of air pollution, the greenhouse effect and global warming. Planes and cars are indispensable means, we would miss it, but if we learn to use them sparingly, waiting for the electricand hybrid engines to be more accessible, the Earth and the Sky will say thank you!
- Before you throw it, think about it! If we have objects, furniture or clothes that we no longer need, we first think if there is someone they need and give them away. Those who need it will appreciate it, and by decreasing the disposal processes, as well as saving costs and energy, we will contribute to reducing pollution.
- Wethrow the garbage in the bin, and do the separate collection! Chemical, plastic and metal waste are still among the worst causes of pollution of the oceans and emerged lands. Some, like cigarette butts, take years to decompose. We use the baskets, therefore, and separate the waste : the organic ones will be used to produce energy, fertilizers or vegetable polymers. Metals and synthetic plastics, on the other hand, can be reworked and, instead of polluting, come in handy in a thousand ways. In this regard, we remind you that the BioBottle Sant’Anna is biodegradable (except the cap and the label!), It must be thrown in the wet and reduces pollution.
- Let’s recycle! Many of the things we use every day are made with precious and exhaustible materials, or very polluting. For example, paper or glass can be reworked indefinitely, thus avoiding cutting trees or using work processes that pollute and overheat our Earth. The list would be very long and we refer you here to some examples. Did you know that fleece, and many other clothing fabrics, derive from plastic?
- We plant seeds, flowers and trees, in the vegetable gardens or on the balcony. From plants, which have always been our allies, we extract nourishment, medicines, fabrics, even paper for packing or writing. Biodiversity is one of the most precious gifts on our Earth: the richer the vegetable kingdom, the more we are, humans and animals. Not to mention that the greenery, from the gardens to the forests, cleans the air and allows us to breathe better.
- Let’s take care of the animals,even the little ones. By helping plants, we also help swallows, bees and their precious honey, bats that keep mosquitoes away, and there would still be examples. They too are our old companions, but they are often at risk of extinction due to pollutionor the disappearance of woods and forests, while they have always played an important role not only for ecosystems, but also for agriculture. So let’s get to know them, respect them and protect them!
- We eat local foodwhenever possible: it is fresher, healthier because it has less preservatives, and traveling less kilometers to get to the table helps reduce pollution. Similarly, when we shop, we reward those who offer smart and recyclable packaging.
- Let’s turn off the taps! Water is by far the most precious asset in nature, it cannot be reproduced in quantity, but on the contrary it can be polluted or contaminated. Let’s not waste it, and protect the purest sources, it affects our health and our territory! Precisely for this reason, protecting the alpine environment where its pure and light water flows is the first obligation
