In the last decade, social awareness regarding caring for the environment has been increasing. Non-profit organizations have a greater presence in the world and there are more and more laws that help improve the environmental situation.
Each of us, from wherever we are, can collaborate with the preservation and conservation of the environment and the increase of our quality of life, through small actions such as:
Make the most of the light, with the time changes it also helps us to conserve more energy. Also remember to turn off the light when you are not in a room.
Save more water, with actions such as washing the car with a bucket of water instead of using the hose or collecting cold water from the shower, it will help us reduce its consumption.
Unplug your electrical appliances when you are not using them, this will help them not to consume even a minimum amount of electricity.
Choose batteries that are recharged with solar energy. Also, consider the option of acquiring a solar water heater, it is an investment that in the long run will bring you economic and environmental benefits.
Avoid as much as the car can be used. Traveling by bicycle or public transport instead of the car will make you a healthier person and you will contribute to polluting less.
Choose paper or cloth bags, since regular plastic ones are very polluting because they take longer to degrade.
Plant trees and plants, either in the garden, in a park or look for civil societies dedicated to reforesting. All of this helps improve the air in the city and our lungs.
Use organic waste as a great compost option. These can be buried in the ground to help the plants instead of throwing it away, also consider using natural products on the plants instead of pesticides.
Avoid throwing garbage in the streets at all costs, storing it to the nearest bin or until you get home is simple and is a sign of your education.
With more and more people carrying out actions and strategies aimed at reducing the negative impact on the environment and even have developed careers focused on this, as in the case of the Executive Master of Engineering and Environmental Technology of UTEL , focused on the analysis of the complexity of environmental problems and the creation of projects that generate benefits.
