Switch off unnecessary power consumption. It saves you money, but more important, that amount of power you don’t use, does not have to be produced!
Also, look up the power consumption of your big devices, like fridge, freezer or oven. Often, it’s a good decision, to buy a new device that can do the same as the old one but, with the consumption of less electrical power. Sometimes, the amount of money comes back to you in only a few years of usage because of the saved amount of electrical power. Keep in mind, the price of electrical power increases every year. So, the amount of money also increases every year.
Less consumption of electrical leads to a lower number of needed power plants. Coal plants have an environmental impact by polluting the air. Nuclear power plants are an enormous high risk for the environment and the people. Just in case, an accident takes place, the environment is polluted for decades, if not centuries. I’d like to remind you to the accidents in Fukushima, Japan in 2011 (March, 11th) and Chernobyl, Russia in 1986 (April, 26th).

Thank you for a wonderful post and I’m glad you enjoyed my little introduction to Kamil Vojnar. I actually thought of you while in the gallery and that it might be something for you to check out.
🙂 what a funny coincidence. On the other hand, it up to my mind recently, that I haven’t seen any post from you for a some time.
Ah, there has been issues of technology and some human… 🙂 Thanks for hanging in with me. 🙂
you’re welcome 🙂
Reblogged this on poetry, photos and musings oh my! and commented:
Earth Day is 22 April. Give our Mother Earth a gift and help clean her and not continue to pillage and destroy.
thanks, for reblogging, Léa!
My pleasure and thank you! I am hoping to do a brief series, such as The Garbage Patch (plastic in the sea) leading up to Earth Day… Alas, I am having difficulties getting the photos I need on such a tight budget…
that might be a problem – often you can find plastic waste on a beach in the early morning or along a river: bottles, screw plugs and tin / bottle trays.
Another option could be, asking an environment preservation society (i.e. sea shepherds)
Nevertheless, seems to be an interesting project
The only thing that “litters” our beaches is shells and driftwood. I contacted earthday.org but they said they couldn’t help… I’ve never heard of sea shepherds but will give it a look. Thanks again.
you’re welcome. I also sent you a PM – good luck for your project
Merci mon ami! I shall check it out.
