  1. Why Nature Conservation Is Important

    Nature differs for different animals, but it's suffering the same fate as well: The endangerment of many species and threats to the natural resources. The seascapes and landscapes, as well as the protection of the many wild species, are important to the economic, social and environmental well-being of our country's wildlife. Here are some reasons why nature conservation important Safeguards Human Life Almost 50 per cent of human medicines come indirectly or directly from the natural world. Many lifesaving drugs, such as anti-cancer drugs, originated in nature. 60% of people all over the world depend almost completely on plants for primary medication. Also, animals are used for traditional medicines in some parts of the world. Conserving and studying nature is as significant as other human health initiatives, and the conservation health benefits have to be included together with other discussions concerning saving nature. Conservation and wildlife science are relevant to our lives. Environmental Protection Having a healthy environment is vital to healthy living. The overall earth’s atmospheric temperature is increasing, that's why environment protection organisations and groups are making environmental protection steps to reduce ozone depletion. Marine Ecosystems Oceans are known to be the largest ecosystems and are also the largest life support systems on Earth. The oceans generate 50 per cent of the oxygen humans breath. Also, the ocean provides 16.6% of the animal proteins humans eat. The security, economy and survival of humans require a healthy ocean, that's why when you help to conserve it, this can bring many advantages to humankind. Natural Parks Health Natural parks are home to numerous endemic specie and they should be protected. These natural parks are important because they protect the areas of natural beauty, and it's a land that is set aside for animals, plants and where they live. Natural parks play a big role in keeping the environment healthy because they house many plants. The parks are also places for people to know more about native animals and plants and how they depend on each other. Habitat Conservation and Terrestrial Ecosystem Some species can't live outside the natural habitat without the intervention of humans, like the habitats found in an aquarium or zoo. Other migratory species tend to be vulnerable to habitat destruction since they inhibit two or more natural habitats. Like everything in life, nature doesn't operate in isolation; most of the species found on the reserve are usually migratory, hence their conservation does not rely solely on the reserve. For instance, many of the butterflies on the reserve also spend their time in urban environments such as in city parks or your backyard: Everything is connected. Natural habitat alteration can lead to a domino effect that will harm the whole ecosystem. Therefore, everyone has an important role to play in nature conservation. Small actions such as looking for landscape services, planting native species in the garden or recycling water bottles, to big actions such as investing in hundreds of thousands of trees, all help to keep our planet and nature healthy.

  5. Plastic pollution is growing into one of the most pressing concerns of the 21st century. An estimated 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic have been created to date, and trends show that if we don't curb our use of plastic soon then there will be upwards of 12 billion tonnes of plastic in landfills and our environment by 2050. Single-use plastics are pervasive in our society, from straws handed out with every drink to throw-away coffee cups, and it can be difficult to know where to start. Below is a guide to plastic alternatives that can help guide you in helping to prevent further pollution. All Plastics Are Not Made Equal It is a common misconception that all plastic goods are recyclable, but in fact some are more likely to be recycled that others. Traditional, oil-based plastics are the most prevalent, but only around 9% of the produced plastic is being recycled. Luckily, there are other, more sustainable options. Plant-based plastics, such as those created with corn, potato starch, and cellulose, are both compostable and recyclable. They contain the same durable and versatile qualities of today's plastic, while being made from natural materials that will breakdown, rather than persist indefinitely, in the environment. Companies such as Full Cycle Bioplastics are beginning to experiment with plant-based plastics, also called 'bioplastics,' because they see them being the way of the future. Switching away from plastics entirely might be unrealistic but swapping out current plastics with the more environmentally-friendly bioplastics is a step in the right direction. Plastic-waste providers will then work with commercial waste disposal collectors to ensure that businesses can easily dispose of this recyclable waste. Choose Reusable Waste Options Ramping up recycling practices and choosing plant-based plastics will make a dent in pollution, but there is still a deeper problem to be addressed. Single-use products are unsustainable, and even 'environmentally responsible' waste is still waste. Cutting down on the use of disposable drink cups, bottles, straws, and bags is an important lifestyle change that can be made in order to halt current pollution patterns. Choosing to purchase reusable and more 'recycling friendly' options such as tin or glass will both cut down on pollution, and send a message to businesses. Use Your Purchases To Create Change Businesses rely on consumers like yourself for success, and if people begin to demand bioplastics at their coffee shops and recycled plastics in their stores, the demand for unsustainable plastic-waste will decrease. Together we can create a more sustainable future.

  8. How to Conserve Water Every Day

    Water is one of our most precious natural resources: not only does drinking water allow us to stay hydrated and healthy, but it also gives us the ability to grow food and plants, wash our bodies and clothes, and cook meals. Thanks to advances in water filtration techniques, we are now able to enjoy cleaner, better-tasting water than ever before! We all use water every day for so many things, but tend to take it for granted-it's easy to lose sight of just how essential water is in our lives. We must make it a priority to conserve water whenever we can, so that we can be sure to avoid water shortages and keep our natural sources of water from becoming depleted. Here are some tips for conserving water that you can do every day, in order to be a friend to the Earth and protect our water supply from vanishing in the future. Turn off faucets It sounds almost too simple, but by just making sure to turn off the faucet in your kitchen, shower, or bathroom sink when it is not in use, you can help save gallons of water each day! People tend to turn on the tap and let the water run while washing their faces, shaving, or brushing their teeth. By breaking this bad habit and turning off the water while you brush or shave, you can save up to two gallons of wasted water each minute, according to the EPA. Fix leaks If your kitchen or bathroom sink has a leak that causes the faucet to drip continuously, it's more than annoying- it's bad for the environment! According to Flatirons Plumbing of Boulder, Colorado, a slow drip from a leaky faucet can waste up to 20 gallons of water each day, while a constantly-running toilet can use up to 200 gallons a day. Imagine how much you could save in both water conservation and your utility bill if you simply fix leaks as they occur! Repurpose water Are you guilty of turning on your shower faucet and then waiting a couple minutes for it to heat up before jumping in? Don't worry, you're not alone. You don't have to switch to icy-cold showers to be a friend to Mother Nature, though- just collect the water in a bucket as it heats up and use it for something else, like watering plants in your garden. You can also do this when rinsing fruit and vegetables in a colander- rather than let it go straight down the drain, place a bowl underneath and use the water for another household chore. This way, nothing gets wasted. When you look at all the ways you use water throughout the day, it's easy to spot a number of opportunities to conserve it. There are plenty of ways to cut back on water usage without having to sacrifice your quality of life. By taking time to help conserve water, you're doing your part in creating a happier, healthier future for us all!

  12. Filtering jug or mineral water

    Every day we make a number of purchasing decisions, guided by many factors. What determines the choice of products that we bring from a store? Usually it is the same set of criteria: price, quality, brand awareness, habit and taste preferences. However, more and more often we are also trying to select products that are healthier and more ecological, because we are more and more aware of their impact on our health and life. Considering these criteria, will giving up mineral water for filtered water is a good choice? Purchase of a jug or a filter bottle is the cost of several dozen zlotys on average, and a filter for several dolars a month. Many calculations indicate that the purchase of a filtering jug can save several hundred dolars a year, taking into account the regular monthly filter change of course. In addition, we reduce the amount of rubbish, throwing up to 26 kg of plastic a year less. In this way we become more environmentally friendly, because, unfortunately, we still do not always have the option of waste segregation and guarantee of its proper recycling. According to German scientists from the health perspective water stored in PET packaging can be contaminated with substances that may cause for problems with the endocrine system (e.g. bisphenol A, which is so avoided by manufacturers of accessories for children). Products for filtering water at home available on the market are largely recyclable, manufactured with care for the environment and will serve us for many years. Thanks to the online purchase options, filtering jugs, bottles or filters will reach any place, even if these products may not be accessible easily. Online shopping also gives us access to the full range of products and provides detailed information, making it easier to choose the most suitable option for our household. Companies producing them have been known for years, so there is no fear that you will not be able to choose a filter or replace the filtering jug if necessary in the future We can always filter the water by simply filling our jug or tap water bottle without having to go out to the store. The quality of water bought in stores is a separate topic. To be sure what kind of water we are dealing with, we need to read the sum of minerals dissolved in it from the label. Mineral water is considered the one containing 1000 mg of mineral substances in 1 litter at least. Out of over 200 water brands available, only about 30 are mineral waters, the other ones are deep-sea or tap water, enriched with minerals. Thanks to the tap water filtration, we are sure that we consume purified, safe and tasty water, which is especially important if there are children at home. This is also an economical solution that supports an environmentally friendly approach to the household. Read more about water filtering systems on Dafi.us
  13. A jug with a filter or a bottle

    Currently, various solutions are available. Their choice depends on our needs. Filtering jugs are the most widely known and comes to our mind first, when we think about filtering water. The first devices of this type appeared in our homes many years ago. The history of filtering water at homes dates back to the 1970s when jugs with removable filters were the first solutions available in general. Jugs available at present vary not only in terms of design and colour, but also in their production process. Materials they are made from is the basic difference - jugs are made from glass and plastic. Each solution has its own advantages, so that you can choose the most suitable product for your household. You can also choose different filters for your jug, there are more universal filters as well as ones with a more specialized usage, e.g. for preparing cold drinks (the ones that better remove chlorine and organic impurities, easily perceptible in non-heat treated beverages) or for household appliances (with increased water hardness reduction). Let's choose the filter that best suits our needs. Keep in mind that all filters provide a high degree of water purification by removing substances disrupting the smell or taste thanks to activated charcoal filter and an ion exchange resin which removes heavy metals from the water and reduces water hardness. What else is available on the market? The bottle is ideal not only for active people, practising sports and requiring additional hydration during increased physical activity, but also for anyone who wants to live a healthy life. Light, ergonomic, it can be filled with tap water wherever we are, ensuring that the water consumed is clean and safe, free from harmful substances, sediments and mechanical impurities. Filters in bottles, like in jugs, are replaceable, thanks to which water quality will always be high. Additionally, one filter can replace the purchase of up to 300 bottles of water with a capacity of approx. 500 ml each, helping us to care both for the environment and the home budget. A filter bottle is a perfect complement to home filter systems, providing clean, filtered water whenever you do not have the access to a jug or installation with a flow filter. Due to their larger capacity filtering jugs are the best solution for households, where the needs are bigger and the water is needed, for example, for cooking or household appliances.

  14. When buying a home in Ontario, there are several things that can help ensure you make the most of your investment. Choosing the right area is step one, then choosing the right house is step two. There are many up and coming neighbourhoods where home prices are still reasonable, and don’t require you to be driving a Ferrari just to even think about entering the market. I’m looking at you Toronto, with your million-dollar entry fee and overpriced market. IT is best to look for a city outside of this “crazy” zone, somewhere like Brantford or Hamilton, maybe even Clarington or Bowmanville. These cities are not only great, pleasant places to live – but they’re going up in value – FAST! Of course, determining the best place is one thing, and finding the right home is another. Not all houses are created equal, and if you’re not careful you could end up with a real junker that will empty your pockets faster than a trip to the casino ever could. First, you’ll need to choose the right real estate agent, which as an example, in Brantford you could look to someone like The Munir Group, or in Toronto go with someone from Remax. Your agent should be registered with the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) and have a perfect understanding of the market they operate in. This will allow them to feel you out and find the perfect home for you. Once you’ve found some potential homes, get a home inspector to help you make sure the houses are as good as they seem. Pick your inspector wisely as they hold the power to help you make a solid purchase. If you aim to expand your home, choosing a builder before you even buy a property can also be a good way to ensure you make the right choice and save money along the way. Check if any new builds come with a warranty, especially if the home is at risk of workmanship issues, water penetration or structural defects.

  15. MBP Solutions Go Green Scheme

    MBP is a company that is dedicated to providing expertise in product knowledge, incineration technology and legal compliance, which are the key competences in the energy industry that is rapidly developing. Embracing the current trend where many countries across the world are shifting towards environmental conservation by reducing global warming and minimizing the emission of greenhouse gases, MBP provides a sustainable option, biofuel and bio liquids, which substitute the need for fossil fuels such as diesel. The MBP biofuels and bio liquids are useful in a wide range of applications whether in their pure form or blending them with other fuels. Some of those applications include electricity, road transport, combined heat and power plants (CHP) and heat generation industries. Not only does MBP provide a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels but also helps industries and companies go green. Below is a detailed explanation of how MBP is currently making businesses conduct their production activities in a more eco-friendly manner. The Go Green Scheme For companies that want to go green the first step is for MBP to conduct a desk evaluation of the development of potential based on the existing by-product information provided to enable them conduct an on-site audit. Once the audit is complete, a development of the potentials and economic scenarios enables MBP to offer appropriate by-product solution. For the scheme to be very effective and accomplish the desired results there are three factors that need consideration. 1. Recycle and recover This is a key step in achieving a better environment and sustainable utilization of resources. MBP experts together with manufactures work together to use the by-products and waste to develop a suitable by-product strategy that will optimize the potential of the individual wastes for both short and long term. Prevent, Reuse, Recycle, Recover and Reduced Disposal of waste is the way of thinking, which MBP promotes in its activities ever since the company started, commonly referred to as the circular economy. Examples of MBP applications that promote recycle and recover include; uses for energy recover (bio liquids) anaerobic digestion feedstock (biogas) and composting for the agricultural land (soil improvement). 2. Sustainability Environment protection is a major part of MBP ideological backbone that is why they take pride in identifying products normally considered as waste or by-product and by understanding its potential, they find an optimal application of it. This reduces the waste generated and minimizes the consumption of raw materials since the by-products from MBP often substitute the raw materials. MBP specializes in offering sustainability to these two areas of business Biofuels, bio liquids and bio methane substrates Since 2012 MBP Solutions is among the biofuel companies that supply the market with biofuels and bio liquids and is certified by the EU standards RED (Renewable Energy Directive) and the RSB (Roundtable for Sustainable Biomaterials). These certifications prove that the biofuels, bio liquids and bio methane substrates from MBP are sustainable. Aquaculture Aquaculture is without a doubt a sensitive area where sustainability is crucial hence, the need for MBP to provide fish oils in conformance with ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council). The company is currently trying to secure two sustainability standards accreditation namely the IFFO RS Chain of Custody and the MSC Chain of Custody. 3. The circular economy The circular economy involves production, Recycle and Recovery where the system focusses on reducing waste and keeping the materials in use for a longer period. MBP is focusing on recovery and recycling which are in line with the EU agenda to increase resource utilization efficiency in the European society. The EU action plan involves developing appropriate legislation that enables circular economy practices and supporting development and incentives in Europe. MBP shares some of the target with the EU action plan such as getting rid of landfilling and the re-use focus of turning ones’ industry by-products into another industry’s raw material. Conclusion The go green scheme is in accordance with the MBP Solutions purpose, which is to help minimize humanity’s impact on the environment by transforming one industry’s by-products into another’s raw material.
