20 ways for an eco life By: Tatiana
Nowadays almost everyone is talking about an eco life and its principles as well about what exactly we could do to maintain the quality and the safety of our planet by saving its resources. Therefore we are frequently urged to not be selfish and start thinking at our successors and care about their future as we care about our present. Because we should not forget that our successors are our children, our relatives and our friends! We definitely prefer for our lives clean water, fresh air and green parks and forests … but remember that we all can contribute to achieve that! Being eco is not as difficult as you may think. Everything starts with simple things, like turning off the light before you get out of the room, recycling and reusing objects or give them to the others if you do not use them anymore. I further present you 20 ways about how you could be “green”. 1. Replace the usual bulbs with some economical bulbs. These are the most sold green products in Romania. 2. Turn-off your computer during the night. 3. Use the dish washing machine and you will save almost 68 liters of water, without counting your energy and time. 4. Use rechargeable batteries. 5. Use both sides of a sheet of paper. 6. Recycle the newspapers, magazines and any non-confidential documents that you don’t use anymore.
7. Take a shower instead of a bath. 8. Reuse the gift packing paper and gift bags as well as its accessories (ribbons, bows etc). 9. Turn-off the water while you are washing your teeth. 10. Turn-off the light when you get out of the room or during the day, if there is enough natural light. 11. Plant a tree. 12. Buy products that are made in our country (this will avoid the transportation pollution). 13. Recycle the old mobile phones. 14. Do your car inspection on time. You will reduce the gas consumption, avoid pollution and offer to your car a “longer life”. 15. Find the garbage dumpsters for paper, plastic, glass and metal placed near to your house and dispose selectively the garbage. 16. Use matches instead of gas lighters. 17. Give away! Before throwing out an object, remember that maybe it could be very useful for another person. 18. Pay your bills online and use online plain tickets. 19. Wash your car at a public car wash; the water consumption will be considerably reduced. 20. Say NO to the plastic bags. Take with you a capacious bag every time you go to shopping. https://www.facebook.com/accentureinromania ©2012 Accenture. All rights reserved.
