So, you wish to stop or at least reduce the activities responsible for pollution. Save Paper!. Seems great idea! Isn’t it? But, how?. Don’t Use Tissue!. Yes! Good idea. You decide that after a heavy meal, you would stop using tissue paper to wipe off your hands.
Yes! Good idea. You decide that after a heavy meal, you would stop using tissue paper to wipe off your hands.
Thank You for the same. I’ll also try my best to follow the same.
If you are going to use soap for cleaning your hands, please think twice. The soap, after cleaning your hands, goes to drain.
This is going to contaminate the soil and the groundwater. Remember, often the weight of soap used for washing hands is nearly equal to the weight of tissue.
I am sure there is no Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) going to treat this water.
Well, seems a better option. Handkerchief can be reused again and again after washing.
The only problem is “What do you use for washing?” Soap or detergent or something else? Again with plenty of water.
Environment wise, is it really different from washing your hands with soap?
Please do suggest me some better options so that I may stop using tissue after a delicious meal.
Isn’t the situation same with toilet tissue? For nearly 10-12gms of tissue, for the production of same 100-200ml water would have been used.
In the conventional system, we use nearly 500-800ml water. Then, nearly 2-2.5gms of soap along with nearly 500-800ml water is required to wash our hands.
Now, under this situation, decide yourself whether using toilet tissue is so bad an idea?
To me, it appears that toilet tissue is a more environment friendly option.
Stop reading newspaper.
At least the printed version.
A lot of paper can be saved.
What are the alternatives?
E-paper, T.V., Radio.
But, if you are watching TV or listening to radio, you cannot save important things easily.
Internet is over-flooded with information and to search something useful to me is a little difficult.
My son is appearing in board examinations, and I get every day a sample paper for him in my daily newspaper.
I tried to get the same from internet. But, there are so many sample papers that I got confused which to choose, which to download.
My newspaper might not be giving the best sample paper, but at least it can be trusted to be good.
I consider the cost of newspaper as the price of newspaper less the price of waste paper generated after reading newspaper.
If I consider cost of internet connection (on the proportional usage basis), cost of electricity required to switch on computer, cost of occasional printouts etc., newspaper is still cheaper.
Well, this part is too common to be told to anyone.
Unfortunately, I rarely take a printout.
I have tried to spread this message, but was unable to find a person who takes out printouts without necessity.
Do you know somebody who takes out printouts unless really necessary?
and still feeling guilty that trees are being cut to make paper.
You feel yourself responsible for environmental damage.
On a rough estimate, we use at least 8-10 times wood for furniture than paper.
Are we really ready for wood-free furniture (e.g. steel furniture) or less-wood furniture?
How many of us are really willing to even think of steel doors and windows rather than wooden one for our homes and offices?
Have you ever cared for environment while ordering new furniture?
The earth has sufficient for everybody’s need.
But, not for everybody’s GREED.
Think! Are you becoming part of masses who pretend to care for earth.
