How can we reduce waste? - By Andrada Clipici Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Made by Andrada Clipici 6th grade Scoala Gimnaziala Magura
  • 2. Let's take out the trash !- one of the things that we all hate. But have ever thought about what happens to trash? Many of the things we take are simply wasted instead of being reused or recycled. Only in the EU annually produce 1.3 billion tons of waste. Around 40 million tones of hazardous waste. One European produce on average 1 kg of domestic waste per day or similar. It is estimated that 2020 will produce 45% more waste than in 1995. Due to the fact that in Romania the separate collection of waste has not yet become common practice, it can be said that a large proportion of waste which is recyclable material (paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, metal), is not recovered. So large amounts of secondary raw materials and energy resources are lost.
  • 3. In order to reduce waste first we have to do our shopping intelligently. Here are some other ways to reduce environmental impact:  Organic products which are labelled.  Avoid over-packaged goods - Europeans packaging waste annually produce 4,000 times the weight of the Eiffel tower!!  Think carefully before you print something!  Use opportunities to recycle paper, packaging, metal cans, glass or other household waste. Recycling of aluminum cans saves energy to operate a laptop for 10 hours.
