1. Decrease power consumption

In Brazil, in particular, 90% of energy comes from hydroelectric dams. If we increase the use of energy, more plants will have to be built and they cause major environmental impacts because of the large amount of water held back to produce energy.

tips
  • Use LED bulbs, they are much more economical and last a long time, the incandescents use a lot of energy.

  • Don't leave the lights on when not needed or in rooms that are empty.
  • Use natural light whenever possible, opens the windows and lets in the light, and chooses to paint the walls in a light color.

Save water

For every 100 liters of water, only 63 liters are used and the remaining 37 are wasted. ALMOST 40% OF WATER FOR CONSUMPTION WAS WASTE, UNNECESSALLY! Each capital wastes on average 1.5 billion water a year, just imagine all the capitals we have in the world and all the water that is wasted.

tips

  • don't wash the bathroom, the yard and the street every day instead, sweep up! And when you wash it, use water from the washing machine or rain.
  • When we go to wash our teeth with the tap turned on we waste 12 liters of water, ridiculous! If we turn it on just to rinse our mouth, we'll only use 500 ml of water!

  • a leaky faucet spends 46 liters a day, so make sure you keep the faucets closed.

  • An 8kg washer on 1 wash spends an average of 125 liters, laundering when you have enough clothes.
  • wash the dishes with the open tap spends 240 liters !! So, turn off the water while soaping the dishes.

Decreases the use of disposables.

Billions of disposable cups are used in just one day! They have 13 seconds of use and take almost 400 years to decompose. 1 million plastic bottles are bought every minute and discarded. We throw away billions of plastic bags a year. More than 8 million tons of plastic is discarded in the oceans every year. As a result, plastic kills over 100 000 marine animals each year.

tips
  • use eco bags.

Eat less meat

The agricultural sector is one of the main responsible for the deforestation of the forest, since large areas of pasture are needed for cattle breeding. Not to mention that cattle are one of the main emitters of the greenhouse effect. I am not saying to be vegetarian or vegan, because I am not! If you want it is great, but at least try to reduce the amounts and times you eat meat.

I'll give you an example, a piece of meat on our plate causes:
-50 kg CO2 emitted into the atmosphere
- 4 kg of grain used for animal feed
- 6.6 square meters of cleared forest
- 792 liters of clean water (equals 16 baths)

Wear more thrift store clothing

Finally, the manufacture of jeans consumes 11,000 liters of water. So buy consciously, in bazaars, gaps and donate clothes!

Temporarily removed animal, nature, and art image

What is happening in the Amazon is just the tip of the iceberg, so if we do half of these things we will already be helping a lot of the environment! Because the preservation of the environment starts with small daily attitudes that make all the difference!

Until next article!
