GREEN TIP for our ENVIRONMENT

Eat Less Meat

Why?


➤ The livestock sector generates 65 percent of human-related nitrous oxide, which has 296 times the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of CO2.

➤ The special report on climate change and land by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) describes plant-based diets as a major opportunity for mitigating and adapting to climate change.

What can i do instead?


➤ While vegetarian option such as soy can be great protein sources, one does not need to replace meat entirely.

➤ Simple consuming animal products less frequently or switching to less polluting meat sources such as seafood can go a long way!

Green Tip:

Do Not Buy Plastic Bottled Beverages 

Why?


➤ Plastic bottles are made from a petroleum product, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and they require huge amount of fossils fuels to both make and transport.

➤ Moreover, most types of plastic are not recyclable, and contain the chemical Bisphenol A, which is hazardous to human health.

What can i do instead?

➤ The best option is to carry your own bottle to avoid purchasing plastic bottled water.

➤ When purchasing water, buy boxed water. Its carton is made using paper which is 100% recyclable. Use glass bottle at home.

➤ While both harm the environment, aluminium cans cause less damage than plastic bottles.

Air Dry Your Clothes


Take advantages of the sunlight and hot days to air dry your laundry and drastically reduce your carbon footprint.

Wear your clothes at least 30 times before throwing them


The world consumes 80 billion pieces of clothing each year and 10% of total global emissions come from the fashion industry alone.

We must counter the wastefulness of 'fast fashion' by simply asking ourselves - "Will I wear this 30 times" , while shopping.

REDUCE and REUSE


Recycling means dismantling and re-manufacturing products, which uses more energy.
Hence the answer is to reduce or reuse.

1. Avoid single-serve or individually wrapped items
2. Try to buy bulk size of item to save packaging materials
3. Shop at stores that have dispensers of dry fruits and snacks

Unplug Your Devices


They use energy when plugged in even if switched off- which adds to approximately 5% of your electricity bill!!
