How to save and take care of plants in the summer?
1. Avoid outdoor cookouts and picnics disposable products.
Using disposable plates, utensils, cups, and napkins can be a good choice for easy cleaning,
but not the environment.
Summer offers numerous opportunities to use disposable food tools – from picnics to days at the beach to classic BBQ.
you can significantly impact Earth by making a few minor changes to your next meeting – without giving up the convenience entirely.
Instead of disposable plastic products,
you can use a compostable plate, wooden utensils, silicone cups, compostable waste bags, and reusable beeswax food wrap.
2. Use reusable water bottles rather than disposable water bottles
As the temperature increases,
we need to remain hydrated and our carbon footprint in many cases.
A bottle of water can easily be purchased from the corner store,
but the wallet – and most importantly – the planet can pay for all those disposable plastic bottles.
Approximately 3 billion pounds of waste is produced by disposable plastic bottles every year in America,
impacting wildlife, air quality, and water supplies.
There are almost unlimited options on the market today – from chemical-safe BPA-free plastics to glass or stainless steel versions,
with so many environmental and health benefits to stay hydrated.
3. Business second hand
Garage and yard sales are viral in summer,
and finding a new home for your trouble is also a great time.
The second-hand purchase is good for the environment.
According to a 2016 study, fewer new items are produced, less water used, decreased waste,
and fewer carbon emissions.
4. Twinkling Line Summer sundry laundry
Hanging your laundry to dry instead of using the dryer saves energy and has other advantages.
You can save more than $200 per year on your utility bills with a clothesline.
The Energy Department estimates that 4% of the electricity used in the average house is for washing.
See energy.gov’s appliance and electronic energy use calculator for a better estimate.
Reducing the use of dryers also reduces wear and tear on your clothes. T
he sunlight can even help bleach and disinfect the washing machine.
And you can spend more time outside as a bonus.
5. Pull your shades on hot summer days
We use various ways to cool our homes in the summer, like fans and air conditioning.
practical window covers can help to reduce our energy consumption and our electricity bill.
In the higher temperature months,
the Department of Energy says, “76% of the sunlight that falls on standard double pane windows gets warm” Some of the best ways to keep the sun out include cloths with medium-colored, closed,
or open fabric with a white plastic backrest.
The drapes should be hung as close as possible to the window.
Shades must also be mounted near the glass in the window frame and drawn throughout the day.
Awnings can reduce solar heat by up to 65% on the south-facing windows and 77% on the west-facing windows.
6. Less meat to eat
Not only does eating less meat improve health overall,
but it is also good for the planet.
In a 2009 study, 80% of deforestation in the Amazon is linked to cattle ranching.
More research published in the Nature journal of the University of Minnesota has found evidence of the contribution of our meat-eating habits to deforestation,
greenhouse gas emissions, and water shortages.
to make a significant impact, the average individual would have to eat 90% less pork, 75% less beef, and half the number of eggs that they usually use.
If this reduction is too much, two 5-ounce portions of meat per week are a more modest recommendation.
Summer is the perfect time to start with its abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables.
