12. Go shopping once a week

If you go shopping every day you usually spend a lot of time, energy, fuel and money. If you change you shopping habits you could save fuel and reduce pollution… but you should make a perfect shopping plan with all things to buy.

Impact: reduce fuel consumption, reduce pollution

11. Use your bicycle instead of a car

When traveling short distances it is recommended to use a bicycle instead of a car. Cold engine uses more fuel than warmed up engine, therefore your car uses more fuel when making just few kilometers or miles. It is better to use a bicycle and it’s also healthy for you.

Impact: reduce fuel consumption, reduce pollution, save money

10. Ventilating rooms through windows

Using air conditioning devices for cooling air in rooms could be expensive and polluting. Air conditioning devices use a lot of energy and therefore they indirectly produce CO2 and other pollution (in power plants where electricity is produced). If it is possible try to cool down and ventilate rooms through windows in the evening or in the morning when outside air is cooler and fresh.
Impact: reduce electricity consumption, save money, reduce pollution

9. Use A or A+ household appliances

I think the title of this post tells you all. If you are using old household appliances (e.g. refrigerator, washing machine, dishwasher…) do consider buying new ones with energy sign A or A+. Old machines (5 or more years old) have no energy sign at all or have energy sign C or D … those machines are bad machines swallowing energy with big spoon. Important: Don’t throw old machines anywhere!!

Impact: reduce electricity consumption, reduce energy bill, and reduce pollution

8. Is you water overheated?

Check water heater temperature. In normal conditions and for normal use it is enough to warm up water in a water heater up to 50 – 60 degrees Celsius. It is also recommended to heat water up to 70 – 80 degrees Celsius from time to time, but these temperatures are too high and should not be used on a daily basis.

Impact: reduce electricity (energy) consumption, prevent burning your self

7. Save water in a toilet

After your job in a toilet is completed, be careful how you flush. Use minimum water for flushing things away. The best option is to have two buttons for flushing, one for e.g. 2 – 4 liters of water and another button for 6 – 9 liters of water.
Impact: reduce water consumption

6. Avoid sudden car stops or accelerations

Always observe cars in front of your car and try to foresee situations that could happen. If you do so, you will be able to drive your car without sudden stops or accelerations. Sudden stops and accelerations use much more fuel than driving moderate. Now you know why fuel consumption is so high when you are in town and totally nervous – full throttle, full brake.

Impact: reduce fuel consumption, reduce pollution in the city

5. Separating paper from other waste

Factories for producing paper have to use a lot of clean water, energy and destroy many trees in our neighborhood. If you want to change this, buy wastepaper basket only for paper and start separating paper from other waste. Most sorts of paper are recyclable and could be used for paper production with less energy and less destroyed trees.
Impact: save trees, reduce energy, act green

4. Use pot lid when cooking

Energy for cooking comes mostly directly from fossil fuels (gas) or from electricity, that could also be generated from fossil fuels (coal power plant). If using pot lids when cooking, you will use less energy.
Impact: reduce energy consumption, reduce pollution, and reduce household bills for energy

3. Use energy saving lamp in your house and office

Instead of classic lamp, which is not efficient in transforming electricity to light, use energy saving lamp (light, bulb). Energy saving light uses up to 5 times less electricity for the same lighting power and it definitely lasts longer. Buy one and try it now. Impact: reduce electricity costs, reduce pollution.

2. Buy and use reusable shopping bag

Many people are buying new plastic bags every time they enter the shop and then throwing them away after they put goods in the refrigerator. This is very bad behavior. You can improve this behavior by using one bag for many times (not throwing it away) or buy one special bag for shopping that can be used many times and is made of recyclable material. Impact: reduce shopping bills, reduce waste

1. Switching lights off in your house and office

After leaving the room, turn off the lights, especially if you will not need the light next 5, 10 minutes or more. Impact: reduce electricity bill, reduce pollution

99 Environment friendly advices

I think many of us just can’t see opportunities for environment friendly living due to the constant race for business, daily activities, stress and other factors. Those “disturbing” factors force us to behave according to our plans and company’s plans, almost everything is in the plan in our tight schedule, but what is missing … I think environment component is missing in our plan. For the start maybe just to check if all lights are switched off when leaving our homes at the morning, or to think in which shop we have to go in our way home to reduce our travel costs and of course pollution. Those are the little things which will enable use to continue planning also other “more important” business plans in the future. If we forget about those little environment friendly things, I’m not sure how long we will be able to make plans for our business and daily activities… maybe 20 years… who knows? So let’s act environment friendly now – my new blog is the right place to move into action, powered by Green Confident Blog, always in action.
