Sống xanh – Chuẩn mực mới của thế giới hiện đại

Maintaining a green lifestyle not only protects the environment, but also creates healthy habits, ensuring physical and mental health for the whole family. More and more families are interested in environmental issues and green lifestyle, especially in daily life. The simplest thing you can do is control the amount of domestic waste and the amount of electricity and water consumed every day.

1. Use energy-saving household appliances

You can save energy - protect the earth by taking care of the longevity of old household items in your home. Refrigerators, gas stoves, lamps, rice cookers, etc. are less likely to wear out their power-saving features, leading to waste without you even knowing it. Replacing these "older" household items with new models with high energy-saving and environment-friendly features is a great solution to effectively avoid wasting electricity.

2. Limiting household waste

The huge amount of domestic waste is gradually killing many species of organisms, please contribute to environmental protection by limiting your household's household waste. To limit waste, the first thing you need to do is to separate the garbage, then bring in compostable organic waste that is composted as fertilizer for indoor plants.

Another way is to implement the principle of "Reduce - Reuse - Recycle", recycle products that can be reused many times. Limit the use of canned food, eliminate single-use plastic items, instead use reusable items such as glass cups, paper bags, ..

3. Scientific food preservation

Leftover rice and vegetables are unavoidable in every meal, don't let them mold in the refrigerator. The easiest way to make sure you don't forget these treats is to mark their production and expiry dates. Use ziplock bags and airtight food containers to store food, helping to increase the shelf life of leftovers in the refrigerator. With foods such as vegetables and salads, you should use a vegetable washing machine to dry the vegetables before putting them in the refrigerator, helping them stay fresh longer.

Do not waste food, plan your shopping and calculate the amount of food needed for your family, you will save a good amount of money if you know how to calculate the right amount of food.

4. Use eco-friendly items

Environmentally friendly items such as wood, bamboo, etc. both help you live a healthy green lifestyle and protect your health and safety. You can replace old household items: spoons, chopsticks, patches, etc. into new ones with more environmentally friendly bamboo and wood materials.

5. Control the amount of domestic water

Water intake is also one of the important factors that need to be controlled if you want to maintain a green lifestyle. Instead of letting water flow from the faucet, using a basin to wash dishes will help reduce water consumption. In addition, if the faucet is leaking or dripping, have it repaired or replaced immediately.

Here are 5 good habits for you to practice a "green lifestyle" to protect the environment effectively. Let's join hands from the smallest actions to keep the earth green forever.

    Hello Nam, this is your mentor Chelwoon.

    Although we usually say that industrial activities have a greater impact on the environment, we can never underestimate the accumulated impacts of individual activities. I think our ambassadors do the 5 good things for the environment mentioned in this article out of habit. Then, what we should do is encourage other people who were not interested in these to be aware and strive to preserve the environment on the earth. Small actions we take must add up to be something big.

    Thank you for the article!

    Hello Nam, this is your mentor Joon.

    Nicely written article about the means to keep our planet green. Though the habits you have suggested are quite simple, it is always hard to actually implement into real life. People should first be aware, and need to keep the awareness in their mind and reflect on their choices in their real life. Though it might not be easy to put it into habit, but once it sticks, it would not move away from one to another.

    Well read your article, and let's keep up!
