How to do less garbage and waste
Simple Tips to Make Less Waste and Garbage
- Try not to use or minimize the use of disposable things: plastic bags, aluminum, glass and plastic cans and bottles, packages, containers, as well as dishes, lighters and the like. How to do it? Simply and easily.
For example, shopping is convenient to go with cloth bags or string bags. They are more durable, do not take up much space, and due to their variety, you can always pick something up for yourself.
Fruits, berries, vegetables and herbs are useful for growing themselves, and if this is not possible, then it is recommended to buy them more at a time and by weight to reduce the amount of polyethylene film that a piece of goods is usually wrapped in. Also an excellent solution will be buying from small farmers. Most often they sell quality fresh produce without plastic packaging. So just come with your bags and buy organic products without polyethylene.
Instead of disposable containers, it is optimal to use reusable containers, and instead of plastic utensils – paper, for example, paper plates and cups. Unfortunately, now it is not so easy to find them, but if you do find it, it is better to buy it with a margin, it will be a good contribution to the protection of the environment. Of course, trees are cut to make paper utensils, but for the decomposition of plastic it takes about 200 years, and cardboard and paper are decomposed in 10 years.
Bottled water is not a good buy, and certainly not beneficial to the environment. It is better to use a distiller or reverse osmosis filter. You will be assured of the purity of the water you receive , while not polluting the nature with plastic bottles, the decomposition of which takes hundreds of years. Opting for the waste management services is important here.
- Even disposable items can often be used more than once.So, please, try to use them again if possible. Thus, we will significantly reduce the amount of garbage being thrown away. The main thing here is a fantasy! For example, you can grow seedlings in plastic glasses or yoghurt containers. Bottles, jars, boxes can be used as containers for storage (which is up to you). Car tires seem to be designed to turn into a beautiful flower bed.
