Caring for the environment does not require great actions, but from your own home you can make many small gestures to contribute to its protection. Also, if you have children, you will be their reference, so they will learn to see what you do and imitate it.
Advice and actions to take care of the environment at home:
Separate trash. From childhood it is good that children learn to separate waste so that it can be recycled. Show them what is thrown in each cube and why it should be done this way.
Use products that can be reused. There are many products that can be used several times to protect nature. For example, use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins.
Turn off the lights. It seems obvious, but we do not realize how many times we turn on the light of a room that we do not occupy.
Avoid leaving the appliances plugged in. Remember that appliances that are switched off but still plugged in consume power, so it is important to unplug them.
Take your own bags to the supermarket. More and more supermarkets sell plastic bags to avoid their use and encourage recycling. Take your own bags to the supermarket and you can use them several times.
Plant trees. Trees produce oxygen and are essential for nature, so plant a tree in your home or in the community where you live.
