It isn’t a secret that we make a lot of waste. In order to save the environment, we should make as little waste as possible. However, during the traveling, we make much more waste. We are in a hurry and we don’t pay attention on the waste we make. But, living green means that we must start paying attention to this massive problem. The solution is simple. If we know several tricks, we can eliminate waste from our travels.
The first step is to stop using plastic bottles and plastic bags. They need a lot of time to decompose (500 years) and even then, they are toxic. Simply, use paper bags. The functionality is the same, but they are much friendlier to the environment. Plastic bottles can be reused many times. If you want to do this, then you can use them. In any other way, avoid them.
When you want to throw something away, think again. Maybe you can reuse it. If you are sure that you cannot, then throw it away on appropriate place. You must know that batteries, CDs, and glass can be thrown away on specific places. Don’t just throw them away where you can. Look for the right place. You will need a couple of minutes to reach that place, our planet will be healthier.
Transport makes a lot of pollution. The more we travel, the more pollution we make. Still, airplanes are the best way of traveling, but they are not very good for the environment. So, anytime when you can, use some way of transport that is eco-friendlier. For example, if you can travel by a car, do it.
