How to help the environment at home


Here in this article, we are going to share 10 ways to save the environment when you are at home, office or roaming in the society.

Before sharing various ways (10 or more ways) to protect the environment, we would love to speak about Carbon Footprint, the major factor behind this climate change.  In this article, we would cover below-listed topics.

1.            What is Carbon Footprint & how it is related to climate change?
2.            How can we calculate the carbon footprint?


What is Carbon Footprint & how it is related to climate change?

The total emissions of greenhouse gases like Carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) & water vapor in the environment usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide are called Carbon Footprint.


Most of our daily life actions whether we drive a car or cooking food generate carbon emissions. The greenhouse gases in the atmosphere act like a mirror and reflect heat radiation to the earth which would otherwise be lost to space. More the concertation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, more the heat energy reflected the earth. The increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere warm the earth & Sea. This is called global warming or climate change.

We will share the detailed procedure to calculate your carbon footprint in the next post.


What are the best 10 ways to save the environment at home& office?

We have now understood the concept of carbon footprint and how it leads to global warming. The next thing is to understand, how could we contribute to the conservation of our mother earth. Here in this post, we are going to share 10 simple ways yet very effective ways to save the environment.


Quit smoking

How to help the environment at home

It is needless to explain how dangerous cigarettes are for your health. Not only us but also tobacco manufacturing companies are aware of this fact and while selling tobacco products, they are saying

Social Posts advises you to stop smoking else do your duty to protect the environment. Throw the cigarette butts in dustbin only. It is mandatory to mention here; smoking is also responsible for Air Pollution.


Optimize your water usage wisely

10 ways to save the environment

We keep listening about water scarcity in India and if we continue with the same water consumption pattern, it is very likely possible the unavailability of drinking water in a few upcoming years.  The best ways to save water at your house are as follows:

1. Explore your house and examine all the water taps time to time. In case of any leakage, ask the technician to repair or replace the same with a new one.

2. Nowadays, it is very common to have water purifier (RO) at home and to get drinking water from RO, RO wastes so much water (to get 1 Ltr. Of drinking water, there is wastage of 2~3 ltr.). Collect this water and use that water for some other activities of your home like cleaning the floor, utensils, bath, and many more.



3. Optimize the usage of water while bathing, shaving, brush, etc.

4. Save every drop of water for the better tomorrow.
