Etiquette Tips (continued)


Tip 9What's wrong with drinking tap water? Know that she is well treated before arriving at your home.

Then install a scrubber on the tap and forget about the annoying carboys. Consumption of bottled water involves transportation in diesel vehicles. Need I say more?

Tip 10 - One of the major problems with water pollution comes from the habit of throwing frying oil into the plumbing. "One liter of oil can contaminate up to 1 million liters of water". Do not make this impact. Store the oil in bottles to donate it to institutions that make soap and biodiesel with it. ", informs Helio Mattar, director of the Akatu Institute.

Tip 11 - When shopping, bring your own bag, preferably those made of sturdy cloth. With this simple gesture, you will no longer participate in the sprinkling of plastic bags, which increasingly clog the dumps of major cities.

Tip 12 - Forget the elevator and use the stairs more if you have to go up or down one or two floors. After all, besides saving electricity, so much effort can result in a healthier little body.

Tip 13 - Stop and think carefully before discarding all those objects that no longer interest you. How about donating them to some charity? Rest assured: This material that is just taking up space in your home will surely be useful to many people.

Tip 14 - Plant a tree. It can absorb up to 1 ton of CO2 during its lifetime and is good shelter for birds.
