This world was made for us
If we dont look after it
one day we well may wake up to find its too late!!!
Here some photos to show you how easy it is and what we do
- Use a rag or hand towel instead of napkins or paper towels.
Reusing items instead of using disposable items is almost always a better thing for the environment. Reduce the need to cut down trees, the power needed to turn them into napkins, and the space in the landfill once you throw them away.
- Skip the foil and plastic wrap.
Use reusable plastic food containers to store leftovers or other food in the fridge and cabinets, instead of disposable material.
- Hang out your clothes.
If it’s a nice sunny day, hanging clothes only takes a few minutes, and you’re using solar power instead of electricity to do the job. It also makes your clothes last longer.
- Wash clothes in cold water.
Hot water is unnecessary for most clothes. When needed, use warm water.
Sure, it’s a regular practice in some places, with curb-side pickup of recycled waste. But in other places, there’s no such thing. Instead, create a few containers for paper, plastic and aluminum waste in your home or office. When it’s full, drop it off at a local recycling center (look in your phone book) on your errands day.
- Buy used.
Instead of buying new clothing, furniture, cars, whatever, look to buy used instead. You can get them for cheaper, and still get quality — all the while reducing the need to produce more stuff.
- Use your oven less.
The oven not only uses a lot of energy, it heats up your kitchen, requiring more cooling. Instead, we use the crockpot and microwave
