For several years, ecology has become a subject of everyday life without us even realizing it. During presidential debates, in the cinema, in demonstrations… Ecology is everywhere and all the time. But it is at home that we need it most. We explain how.
Sorting at home
Before embarking on big questions about the future of the planet, everyone can help save it. Small summary of color codes for selective sorting: green for glass, it's rather simple, blue for paper and yellow for plastic packaging, metals, cardboard. There is also black for organic waste and red for those that cannot be recycled. If you don't know, don't sort. Indeed, a mistake in a trash can, for example a metal tin can where there should only be glass, costs the community more. If you don't know, it's best to be careful. Please also note, some municipalities sometimes apply their own color code. Ask your neighbors.
Decoration and sorting
To sort without neglecting the decor we find some solutions: under the sink, we place colored plastic boxes that help us to sort. You can write with a marker on it to be sure you don't go wrong. We then throw in a thoughtful way and that saves us from going to the trash every day. A small pot placed next to the materials for DIY can be used to store used batteries or light bulbs. Once full, we drop it off at the supermarket while shopping. When decoration rhymes with green! Our practical decoration recovery videos
