Our health but also for our portfolio. Acting in a certain way, in fact, will help to reduce expenses and the consumption of plastic which is the real calamity for our poor planet.
No more plastic
Plastic is present everywhere: in the packaging of food products, in their own phones but also in household appliances. And again in the packaging and packaging that are sometimes really useless. But what can be done to reduce this problem? In our country every inhabitant per day consumes on average 220 liters of drinking water. Seven out of ten families, however, buy mineral water in plastic bottles. Drinking that of the tap which is always controlled, on the other hand, not only would help to reduce the production of plastic greatly but would also be beneficial for one’s own portfolio.
Recall that the water that is distributed by the water network is neither transported nor packaged, so the cost, compared to that in the bottle, is less than about 200-300 times. 29% of the Italian population, however, does not trust tap water as it sometimes has an unpleasant smell. Putting it in the fridge, however, or leaving it at room temperature, will help to remove this unpleasant smell.
Tips to save and preserve the environment
According to Istat data, about eight out of ten families recycle paper but, drastically reducing unnecessary prints, they could even reduce 6 kilos of waste approximately a year. This is the era of dematerialized documents (i.e. online that do not take up space) which cost less both in terms of ink and print, for which you will always have to opt for the latter. So as not to waste paper and save money, another suggestion is to choose to print on both sides.
And again, for housework it would be a good idea to use eco-refills that cost less and help reduce waste. In addition, with them there is a greater quantity of product. Even limiting food waste will protect the environment and at the same time save a little something.
