We are currently facing various environmental problems that, for several years, have advanced rapidly, endangering not only ecosystems, but also all human beings.
Climate change, pollution, deforestation, the extinction of species and the loss of biodiversity are some of the main environmental problems we are experiencing.
Fortunately, every day, we are more who care and add to the care of our planet. But there is still much to do.
We are all part of this planet, and no matter how small they may seem, our actions have a positive or negative impact on it. Together we can make big changes, generating actions that contribute to caring for our environment.
At lunchtime we generate a considerable amount of waste, from napkins, plastic bags, PET bottles, tetra-pak containers, fried food wrappers, etc.
Most of the garbage ends up in landfills, the rest ends up in the streets, drains, rivers and seas, causing pollution, floods and damaging the lives of more than 700 species of living beings, from the sea turtle to the blue whale.
Almost 13 million tons of plastic reach the oceans each year, without counting those that end up in rivers and at the bottom of lakes.
We can all help clean our planet, making responsible consumption, creating new habits and informing ourselves of the impact that the products we consume have on the environment.
Acquiring the habit of separating the “garbage” by categories and depositing it in the corresponding containers facilitates the separation between disposable waste and waste that may have another use and helps to reduce pollution, by reducing garbage in a large percentage.
With all these actions, you contribute to reducing expenses at home, caused by the misuse of electrical energy, and at the same time you join the care of the environment.
