Moolberry has the keys and shares them in honor of International Earth Day.
International Earth Day will be celebrated on 22 April 2020, in a global environment where nothing could have predicted what we were about to experience.
One of the few positive consequences of this confinement that we, the population, are suffering is the sustainable facet. Cities are lowering their pollution levels and natural spaces are recovering their lost balance due to the disproportionate actions of mankind. A situation that leads us to reflect but also to contribute in what way, through our confinement, from the comfort of our homes, we can help from now on to be more sustainable and take care of our earth.
To celebrate World Earth Day, here are some ideas::
- Buy from green companies: Inform yourself and opt for green and sustainable companies. Use your power as a customer, as a consumer, and support companies that are environmentally friendly and that are governed by ideas of sustainability. In this way your support will encourage other companies to adopt environmentally friendly practices.
- 2. Don't use too much light:We suggest the use of candles to create a warmer atmosphere, which will also relax you at a time when more than ever we need peace and quiet. Take advantage of the light from the TV to illuminate the living room.
- Renew yourself: review all the bills that are sent to you in paper format; banks, electricity companies, telephone companies, community of neighbors and ask them to send them to you, from now on, only in digital format. Now you have time to request them one by one and send all your complete information so that you receive them correctly.
- Condition your home: no one knows your home better than you do. Take advantage of the hours of ventilation according to your orientation to take advantage of the hours of heat and vice versa. In winter you should ventilate at the hottest time, around midday, or take advantage of the time when the sun shines the most. In summer, ventilate at night, which also serves to cool the house as much as possible. About 10 minutes a day is enough to renew the air in a room.
- More short showers and fewer baths: Baths need many more liters of water than a 5–10-minute shower. Shortening our bathing time not only saves water but also CO2 emissions. If you always use the washing machine and dishwasher with a maximum load you can save 50% water every month.
- Save on grocery shopping: Plan your meals now that you have more time. Look for tutorials on the internet where they will tell you about all the meals you can make using a single product that you did not do before, due to lack of time. This way you waste less food, less food is thrown away, less waste and you save money.
- Don't use lighters:Don't use lighters, go back to the traditional cardboard matches, you will avoid unnecessary consumption of oil and plastic.
- Don't forget that the oven is the most energy-consuming and least efficient appliance in the house: unless you need a certain cooking temperature, use it only when you are going to cook what you want to cook.
- Familiarize yourself with nutrition and cosmetic labels: now that you have more time, read food labels to find out what you are really buying. This will give you clues as to the presence or absence of parabens or other substances. Both nutritional labels and cosmetic products.
- Sort waste: This is the time to start habits to selectively collect our waste and sort it.
If we take advantage of lockdown to incorporate these habits into our lives, we will also contribute to taking care of our earth.
