If you look around, you won’t miss them. The signs are all around and they are ringing sirens warning us to change the way we deal with Mother Nature. Here are some environmental signs to sharpen our knowledge on how to be better stewards of the environment.
- THE 3Rs
This is a sign you likely have seen and heard about, but we take no chances because it is a very important sign to get acquainted with. The symbol stands the 3Rs mantra to Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle. This symbol can be found on the packaging to indicate that the packaging can be recycled. It is also used by companies and environmentalists alike to encourage the re-purposing, re-use, and recycling of products. These are signs to be looking out for when deciding how to package your products.
- NO DUMPING
Littering or dumping encourages a non-progressive culture that is destructive to the environment. Dumping is a health hazard to the community. A cleaner and more eco-friendly option would be to use the trash services offered by the municipality. Another option when you need to dispose of your trash would be to utilize the municipality-owned dumpsites that are reserved for community use. Either way, there are plenty of options available for anyone to dispose of trash the right and legal way.
- ENERGY SCORE ON APPLIANCES
Here is some information you might find useful for your next shopping trip to the appliances store. When shopping for appliances the ‘A’ range which is 92-100 is your best investment in saving energy and anything that goes above ‘A’ promises even more efficiency, meaning you get to be a hero and save both the environment and your pocket in the long run. Anything in the ‘G’ range, which is 1-20 score will mean wasting energy and eventually, your money as well.
