Leading an ecological life is not difficult, much less sacrificed. It is enough to incorporate behaviors that everyone considers healthy, but few can convert them into habits. A green line of conduct, as environmentalists call it, can cure various diseases and make family life more harmonious.
The results are noticeable in a short time and nothing is lost by trying to put into practice different habits than the known ones. Some keys to become allies of the environment are these:
Do not waste water . Close taps when not in use and repair them if they are damaged. Take a shower before taking a bath. Water at night.
There are ecological cleaning products. They can be purchased at stores where they sell natural elements. They are non-toxic, do not harm the planet and do not cause allergies or irritations.
.Do without bleach and detergents as they are extremely aggressive. You can clean the dirt that accumulates in a home with lemon or baking soda.
Ecological paints are the best alternative to the one usually used. Although it is said that it does not contaminate or cause skin problems, it usually causes allergies and predisposes to situations of asthma and bronchial diseases.
.With regard to garbage, in certain countries it is already a crime not to separate it into different containers specially prepared to receive organic material, plastics, containers and glass. More than half of what is thrown away is recyclable.
.Try not to buy food in small plastic containers as individual juices or cookies. You can buy the drink in a glass bottle and buy loose food to avoid excessive use of paper. The ideal is to buy large containers that can be used as many times as necessary.
Consume only the necessary energy. Turn off the light in rooms where there is no one. Buy energy-saving light bulbs. Defrost the fridge when there is a lot of ice as this increases energy consumption.
Avoid compulsive purchases. Organic clothing is now being sold more naturally and it is possible to get garments made from bamboo, rubber or corn. Products that do not contain pesticides, are breathable, hypoallergenic and one hundred percent natural.
Maintaining a more ecological behavior is possible since the recommendations are available to anyone. You will acquire a better quality of life, more harmonious with the environment and you will also save money by not wasting it on unnecessary consumption.
