Old technics = garbage?

It seems that the lifespan of electrical equipment shrank in the past few years. But not because it gets broken so fast, but rather because we tend to buy new stuff more often. I think that’s not necessary. Well, not always.

I used my old laptop for ten years before heavy-heartedly I bought a new one. My speakers that you can see in the picture are about fifteen years old and my stereo is … hm, antique? I love them for being very reliable devices with high quality standards.

Note: Please check the electricity consumption of your equipment. If they consume too much electricity a new device is more eco-friendly. And: If you decide to throw away any electrical device, make sure that you dispose it properly.

Just disvovered plastic free dishwasher tabs …

Yes, I use a dishwasher and I hated the plastic around the tabs ever since – so I was very glad to find tabs that aren’t wrapped in plastic.

Their foil consist of biodegradable materials and dissolve in water. As an alternative you can also produce dish detergent on your own and give it a try.

Say no to plastic straws and stirrers

In England, it is estimated that we used 4.7 billion plastic straws and 316 million plastic stirrers every year, before the ban came in to action! Across the world most countries use a variety of single use plastics. We can help reduce the amount by reducing the demand.

Every time you’re offered a plastic straw or stirrer with your drink, say no. It won’t stop plastic production, but it can certainly help reduce it. #iDot #SingleUsePlastic #Quarantine #Isolation #PlasticReduction

Wash EVERYTHING out before placing in the recycling!

Only 14% of what you place in the recycling actually makes it to the plant. Even if one piece is unwashed, the entire bin is sent to landfill!
