Humans are greedy by nature. We need everything, we extract, we waste and then we cry for insufficient resources. Energy is the most important factor for sustainable development and poverty eradication.
Relation between energy use and environmental quality have always been deceptive, from the deforestation caused by wood use even in early age to the high levels of air and water pollution that we have faced recently in the phases of industrialization. In past few years, advances in scientific understanding and in monitoring and measurement capabilities have brought increased awareness of the delicate environmental and human-health effects associated with energy production, conversion, and use
Energy is important to human development and connects in fundamental ways with us. The transition to sustainable energy resources and systems provides an opportunity to address multiple environmental, economic, and development needs
However, on daily basis, we waste energy at small level unknowingly or ignoring as the cost is negligible. Here are few ways to save energy:
In recent days, people developed awareness about hygiene. The basic thing is ‘clean water’. Nowadays, almost everyone owns a RO (Reverse Osmosis) purifier for filtering water. We ignore that small and narrow rubber pipe which is throwing out water, we waste more than 75% of water there.
A flush wastes 6 to 10 litres of water, the same RO water (mentioned above) can be used for this purpose
Just turn that tap off during brush, saves a lot !
Cars, being a mode of transport is a status symbol also in todays’ scenario. It’s better to share a car, it saves fuel and reduces traffic also
Ahaa… nope, not in that way :p , just take less in your plate when you’re eating in buffets or parties
