  1. Eco-friendly changing of your habits Every person counts. This is not only the case when it comes to elections, but when it comes to something far more serious, like saving the planet we live on. Whenever you think you are just one person and your deeds don’t really count much, think about this: “Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.” Like Ghandi put it, if you chose to think differently today, you can influence the others tomorrow
  2. Environmentalists and their organizations, such as Greenpeace or the World Nature Organization, fight on a daily basis against human acts that lead to pollution and environment damage. These people are more active than numerous non-governmental organizations that usually criticize and shout, but do not do anything in particular to save what they speak against. Ecologists, on the other hand, plane and implement dozens of actions and events in order to raise the eco-awareness with ordinary people and protect the endangered species. What every business could do in order to join these forces for t

  5. Of course, the term green does not refer to the real colors of the skin, but to the fact that skin protection should also be done in accordance with some rules of ecology and sustainable development. It does not seem to be the case, but the market of products used for skin care is among those in which clashes between organizations like Greenpeace and cosmetics industry is on quite a high level. If you stop for a while and think deeply about how the products that we use for beautifying purposes arrive in our homes, it seems that the process is neither simple nor too clean. First of all, there m
  6. The internal combustion engine has been the leading force of every kind of development for more than 150 years now. Ever since its invention (i.e. adaptation and sophistication of previous tries), this machine has served in all fields of human work. Even where it seems that it has not been used, like the IT sector, it is not actually true, because all these components and computers have to be transferred and shipped. Because of that, IT is also unimaginable without the good old ICE. However, as the world is rapidly heading and developing, no matter how much is costs, it has become clear that
  7. Tyres are among the most reusable materials, but the quantity of tyres recycled and reused in one year is still insufficient for a larger impact on the welfare on the environment.

As a matter of fact, an organized and state-supported approach to disposing old ty

  9. Did you know that most of the bathrooms around the world aren’t exactly green? This is because there are huge amounts of water wasted. Your average toilet will use as much as 30% of the water consumed in the entire house. This and water heaters that need to be powered on all the time to provide warm water will increase your energy bill by a substantial amount. There are though a few tips in order to improve your energy and water consumption and to make your bathroom a bit “greener”. 1. The first thing you should improve in your bathroom is the toilet.

  10. While it seems that as a race we are making at least some progress to being more environmentally conscious and taking care of the world we are living in, there is always more that we can do.
