Environmental protection knowledge


Environmental Protection Knowledge

Environmental Protection Knowledge is a process that enables individuals to explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take action to improve the environment. As a result, individuals will have a deeper understanding of environmental issues and the skills to make informed and responsible decisions.

Environmental Protection Knowledge does not advocate any particular point of view or course of action. Rather, environmental education teaches individuals how to evaluate different aspects of problems through critical thinking and improves their problem-solving and decision-making skills.

Turn off the faucet when washing your hands and wiping soap.

Do not open the faucet and use long running water to wash dishes and clothes. If you see a leaking faucet, you must tighten it.

Use secondary water as much as possible.

The water used for washing rice or vegetables can be used to water flowers; the water after washing the face and washing can be left to wipe the floor and flush the toilet.

Put a Coke bottle in the toilet tank

If your flushing toilet has a large capacity, you can put a Coke bottle full of water in the water tank. This small action of yours can save 1.25 liters of water each time.

Use less detergent

Most detergents are chemical products, which will pollute water sources. If you are too greasy when washing the dishes, you can pour out the remaining greasy first, and then wash it with hot noodle soup or hot soapy water, so that too much oil will not be discharged into the waterway. Kitchen utensils with heavy oil stains can also be cleaned with soda-heated water.

Don’t let the TV stay in the standby state for a long time

The standby state means that only the remote control is used to turn it off, but the power is not completely cut off. The power consumption of each color TV in standby state is about 1.2 watts/hour.

Cooking rice with warm water

Cooking rice with warm water can save electricity by 30%. The inner pot and electric heating plate of the rice cooker should be cleaned in time.

Buying Green Foods

Many vegetables and fruits have been sprayed with pesticides and fertilizers, and many foods have used additives. Such food can endanger health and intelligence.

Therefore, buy fresh fruits and vegetables that are free of pesticides and fertilizers, and eat less convenient fast foods containing preservatives, beverages with pigments, and crispy snacks with additives. Or look for the “green food” logo to buy food.

Choose non-phosphorus washing powder

Phosphorus-containing washing powder will cause algae in the water to grow wildly, the oxygen content in the water will decrease, and the aquatic organisms will die due to lack of oxygen. As a result, the water body becomes stagnant water and smelly water.

Buying Rechargeable Batteries

The batteries we use every day rely on chemical effects, and in layman’s terms, they rely on corrosion to generate electricity. When it is discarded in nature, these substances will slowly overflow from the battery, enter the soil or water source, and then enter the human food chain through crops.

After saving up to 30 kilograms of used dry batteries, you can contact the local garbage collection center for recycling.

Refusing to over-package many commodities

The packaging costs have accounted for 30% to 50% of the cost. Excessive packaging has increased the economic burden of consumers, increased the amount of garbage, and polluted the environment.

Bring your own food baskets

Use less disposable tableware when eating out

Bring your own chopsticks and spoons. Use fast food boxes, paper cups, paper plates, etc. sparingly, especially using quick chopsticks once.

Disposable chopsticks were invented by the Japanese. Japan’s forest coverage rate is as high as 65%, but their disposable chopsticks are all imported. my country’s forest coverage rate is less than 14%, but it is a large exporter of disposable chopsticks.

Make full use of white paper and try to use recycled paper

The used paper can be turned over to make draft paper or note paper. Refusing to accept publicity materials that are distributed everywhere. Making these publicity materials wastes a lot of paper and destroys the appearance and hygiene of the city by distributing and posting them everywhere.

Recycled paper is produced from recycled waste paper. One ton of waste paper = 800 kilograms of recycled paper = 17 big trees.

The use of recycled paper has become fashionable in many countries, and people are honored to show the phrase “made with recycled paper” to show their environmental awareness and civilized education. Sorting recycling, regaining the old traditional “recycling” of waste recycling is no stranger to us.
