Waste cycle – in the first place it is necessary to reduce waste and improve the management of waste treatment processes (separation, storage, disposal in landfills). If we reduce production and consumption, proportionally we also reduce the amount of waste generated. There are plenty of tutorials on the internet nowadays which show how to reuse the old, seemingly useless things. For example, with a little imagination and skill we can make a complete furniture from old pallets. Finding ways to reuse things which can serve a new purpose also helps the environment. If we want to behave ecologically, separation and subsequent recycling of waste is inevitable. Old newspapers and magazines after recycling can get back to us, for example in the form of paper towels or toilet paper.

The use of renewable energy sources – biomass, solar, wind, water and geothermal energy belong among renewable energy sources. Besides that, it is almost impossible to exhaust the resources, they also are environment friendly. Compared to fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal) these sources produce little or no emissions. In the household, solar collectors can be used for producing hot water, photovoltaic cells for converting the sunlight into electricity or use the potential of biomass and heat your house by boiler burning wood chips, or invest in the purchase of the vehicle on biogas.

Saving water and electricity – there are some simple ways how to save water and electricity. For example, by turning off the lights when leaving a room, trying to make the most use of daylight, using the high-quality insulation and replacing windows for those that will not send away heat or properly tighten the pipeline so the water will not leak. Purchase of energy efficient appliances and electronics largely contributes to the electricity savings.

Use of public transport – a simple, yet effective way to live more environmentally friendly is to leave sometimes your car at home and go to work by public transport or to agree with colleagues that you will go to work together with one car. Less fuel consumed means less dangerous fumes, and thus less polluted environment. Sports enthusiasts can also wake up early in the morning and try to go to work by bicycle or, if possible, even on foot.

Protection of local sources of water – hazardous waste materials, such as paints, oils, ammonia and other strong chemical solutions should never be poured down, since these may seep into the groundwater. At the local level, it is necessary to perform all the actions against polluters who place the dump with industrial waste near rivers or discharge chemicals directly into waterways.

Planting trees – we all know very well why we need more trees on this planet. First of all, they give us oxygen, also fruits, wood, prevent soil erosion and flooding and provide shelter for wildlife. Mass felling of trees in recent decades caused that the percentage of forest area decreased rapidly. It is therefore necessary to educate more and more people in ecology and emphasize the importance of and the need for planting new trees.
