From which disposable goods can be refused and in favor of what

“Ten steps to conscious consumption” – a joint course of DEEPLA Trends and the Seduka high project.

The first lesson is about careful consumption.

The second lesson is about the separate collection of recyclables.

The third lesson is about dangerous waste and plastic marking.

After the past two lessons, you probably noticed that most of the items we encounter every day are not processed, which means that it is doomed to a very short life.

Solution – we abandon the entire one -time Let’s abandon everything that we really do not really need, at the same time saving on this.

We offer to say no: Polyethylene packages 5 rub.

per day = 150 rubles.

per month.

= 1 800 rub.

A year is a trifle, but its own.

Go to the store with your bag and bags.

plastic bottles Get a reusable bottle and put a water filter at home.

This will bring significant savings on the water and on its packaging, not to mention reducing the amount of plastic and improving the quality of nutrition.

packaging Try to buy products without packaging.

This can be done on the market, in a store without packaging and even in a supermarket.

To do this, you will need reusable bags or fruit and reusable containers, in which you can buy everything from fish to cakes.

The main thing is not to forget to warn the seller that you are buying in your own.

If you are used to buying any snack or dessert that is sold in non-processed packaging, try mastering a similar recipe at home.

At the same time, you will protect yourself from preservatives and other extra additives.

If you arrange a holiday at home or at work, then, instead of ordering food in a disposable packaging, ask guests to bring one satisfying dish or dessert from home (if they do not know how to cook, let them bring fruits or drink).

So it will be guaranteed tastier, you will not have to deal with garbage, and guests will be pleased to exchange recipes.

cotton sticks Such small plastic items as cotton sticks cannot be processed along with the rest of the waste.

If you can’t do without a stick, then there are reusable alternatives and the so -called “facial expressions” come from Japan.

disposable dishes As we recall, disposable cups are practically not processed.

Therefore, we offer to drink coffee from our heat circle.

By the way, in some institutions on coffee in their containers they give a discount.

And if you went to the picnic, take with you a container, from which in marching conditions is much more convenient than from a disposable plate.

If you organize a holiday at home, ask the guests to wash a plate, then washing reusable dishes will not turn into a headache for the owners.

disposable devices In Zero Waste stores and shops for mountaineering, you can buy reusable devices.

They will come in handy when going to the food festival or a picnic.

Another good way is to take a container with a dense lid and a spoon or fork that is placed in it.

So after eating you can put the device in the container, close it and not worry about washing until it returned home.

Wet napkins Most of them are made of synthetic materials, and they contain chemistry harmful to health.

Checks As we recall from the second lesson, checks are not processed.

If possible, ask sellers not to print a check.

If you bought something large, ask to send a check to e-mail.

Take the habit of refusing a check when withdrawing small amounts at an ATM.

disposable tickets for transport Tickets are also not processed, so it is worth giving preference to travel or directly through a mobile bank (by applying a card or smartphone).

    In DEEPLA we talk about Green Trends that are changing our lives.
    The Green Economy project is based on the need to protect national interests while strengthening global technological trends. Why we talk about GreenEconomy? Because human activity causes irreparable damage to the environment. Until recently, people lived according to the principle "after us, even a flood." Fortunately, today the trend is changing. The development of a green economy is a direct proof of this. And in DEEPLA we are committed.
