The disposal of garbage is becoming a big problem in today’s world. The increase in population means that the waste produced by each person is increasing. This coupled with the rise in standards of cleanliness and hygiene means that we are programmed to dispose of ‘undesirable’ objects. With time, the quality of life has improved and this has also contributed to the increase in garbage production. In today’s world of money, we ignore the consequences of our actions in favor of earning wealth and fame. It is only now that the environment that sustains is in danger that we have begun to change our ways.
This new wave of environmental awareness and friendliness has led to a change in the way we think and consume. The consumer now thinks twice before purchasing or disposing of an item. Children are being taught about the importance of the environment the damage being done to it. This change in consumerism has led to a change in the ways large corporations and conglomerates plan and produce. After all, the common people are the source of their revenues. The environmental movement has always been around, but the current generations are taking the consequences of their actions much more seriously.
There are numerous ways to make your life more earth-friendly and some of them have been around since the time of our grandparents. Carpooling is one such way to save fuel and also reduce the harm to the atmosphere. Simple things like turning off the lights and electronic equipment when you leave the room go a long way in saving power and all the resources that go into producing them. The recycling of paper and glass can save trees, water, and a lot of other things that go into producing them. Changing the fittings in your bathrooms and the electrical fittings in the house will save you money on water and energy bills.
Most environmentally friendly options require an initial investment that can be quite substantial. This initial investment put off most people. Things like energy-saving lights give energy savings that are reflected in reduced power bills. Ensuring that the house is properly insulated also saves on energy bills. Household waste can be easily recycled or used for compost but what do you do with the larger waste like a damaged tub or toilet? Laws do not let you dispose of it in the local dump and the garbage men will not take it away either. The answer is Jumbo Bags! Jumbo bags are similar to the local skips, except that they can be hired. You can choose mini skips from a range of sizes and once you have loaded the waste, you call the hiring company and they will cart it away and your problem is solved!
