• Savings of natural resources: what does this mean?

    Energy saving is an important task for the conservation and conservation of natural resources. And so the question is acute about the lack of a mass culture of energy saving.

    You do not need to think that the effort and time spent will go unnoticed against the general background. The contribution of even one member of the family can significantly reduce the consumption of resources in the house. In addition, it is not only not difficult, but also profitable.

    Change the lamps

    Energy-saving lamps give the same bright light as usual, but use much less energy. Did you know that the standard bulb accumulates only 4% of the incoming electricity( the rest is spent on thermal radiation)?Because of this irrational overspending, incandescent bulbs of 75, 100 and 150 watts are already banned in many countries around the world. Join now!

    Result: a family of three can "save" 100 kg of carbon dioxide a year.

    Boil less

    Electric kettles "love" electricity as much as you like tea and coffee. Try to boil exactly as much water as you need now, and do not fill the entire compartment immediately.

    Result: minus 12 kg of carbon dioxide per person per year.


    By recycling and recycling paper, plastic, glass, metal, we help avoid overproduction and save the Earth's natural resources. Be sure to use the garbage diversification tanks if they are near your home. If not, try to hand over old newspapers and magazines to junk.

    Result: reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by 600 kg per person per year.

    Be Economical in the Office

    Try to do scans of documents instead of photocopying them, and when printing( which, if possible, too, should be minimized) use two sides of the sheet. Turn off the computer when not using it.

    Result: minus 150 kg of carbon dioxide per year.

    Fly less often

    If possible, try to give preference to the services of road or rail. Imagine: a single transatlantic flight "manages" an atmosphere of 2.5 tons of carbon dioxide - that's more than if you drove every day for a year on a car for decent distances.

    Result: if you refuse each flight every month( given that you often fly), then cut carbon dioxide emissions by 100 kg per year.

    Take care of water

    Water reserves on the Earth are depleted every day. You will help to reduce losses if you turn off the water, at least while brushing your teeth. Aggressive "ekofily" is advised also to close the tap, while you are soaped in the shower and apply a cleanser to the dishes. We hope that in the future we will not be called upon to combine these two procedures!

    Go for

    batteries They are much more environmentally friendly than disposable batteries, and will allow you to save up to 60 kg of carbon dioxide emissions per year.

    Result: minus 140 kg of carbon dioxide emissions per person per year.

    Wipe wisely

    Try to use the most gentle mode at 30 degrees when washing - it will benefit both things and the environment.

    Result: minus 260 kg of carbon dioxide emissions per person per year.
