New ways to help the Earth

by Sensix Team

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.” —Jane Goodall

Everything we do has an impact on the Planet

Let’s have a positive one. Because we are human beings and also because our creed is to take care of/save the planet we want to help you find new ways to help the Earth. Small acts with huge impact are the key. Even if we save water or energy or both, in the end all of these will contribute to the healing of the Planet.

Tips for saving water

  • Do not wash fruits and vegetables under running water. Wash them in the sink. This way you can both save water and wash the fruits better.
  • Keep water collection containers. Sometimes when you shower, wash dishes or clean something, you have to let the water run till it gets warm. Instead of wasting that water you can collect it and use it to water the plants, for example.
  • Fill a jug of water and put it in the fridge, so you don’t have to let water run until it is cold and crisp if you’re thirsty.
  • Be savvy in the kitchen. There are many ways you can do that. For example, use the needed amount of water when using a kettle. You can fill the mug you will use and put that water to boil in order to avoid wasting water.
  • Fill your dishwasher. Like the washing machine tip, all you need to do in order to save water is just to fully load the dishwasher before turning it on.
  • Check your property regularly for leaks on your internal plumbing. This is extremely important because, on average, a slow dripping faucet wastes over 26 liters per day. If the leak is more significant, then you could be losing approximately 113 liters of water down the drain on a daily basis.

Tips for saving energy

  • After you charge your phone, laptop, tablet etc. don’t forget to unplug your charger. Easy peasy.
  • Here’s a simple one. If you don’t need the lights on just switch them off. For example, if you leave the house take some extra care and switch all of the lights off before leaving.
  • Avoid the tumble dryer. Instead you can let your clothes dry naturally. They will last longer and they will keep their colors for a longer period of time.
  • Spend less time in the shower and lower your energy bill at the same time.
  • Be careful with your washing. You can save energy just by washing at lower temperatures (30-degree cycles). Try to have one day per week for washing your clothes. This way you can also fully load the machine.
  • Use natural light at maximum. Work in a bright area of your home. You can take advantage of natural light and save energy while working. This will improve not only your energy savings but also your state of mind.
  • Use energy-efficient appliances and LED lights. They are cheap and will help you save some money in the long run too.

Effects of lack of energy on education

2 months ago

School has already started so let’s learn new energy things. 13% of the world (around 940 million people) do not have access to electricity. Even if there is no universally-adopted definition of what “access to electricity” means, most definitions are aligned to the delivery of electricity, safe cooking facilities and a required minimum level of consumption. This number also includes households with children going to school or even schools. Lack of energy will unfortunately have a major negative impact on education, lowering its quality.
