Simple but Effective Environmentally Friendly Methods

How to make a gesture of goodwill for the planet? Risks of fire, resource waste, eco-gardening, sustainable travel, these are all of the different things that you can do as an individual to help the future of this planet. The Windstar foundation is committed to the preservation of the environment and sufficient natural resources for today and tomorrow. All of us, we have got a role to play!

Inform Yourself and act to Prevent the Risk of Wildfires

Each year, thousands of hectares of forests, moors, and scrubland go up in smoke. In many cases, these disasters that result in the loss of life and destruction of personal or collective property are related to the imprudent use of fire. Thus, this kind of natural man-made natural disaster can easily be stopped if you are aware of the prudent uses of fire in the outdoors.

Prevent Waste Production

We know that the too much waste is being produced by everyone all over the world. So here are a few suggestions that the Windstar foundation has in order to reduce the amount of waste that you produce.

You can participate in the collective effort by carefully following the recommendations regarding sorting and recycling of the municipality or the structure responsible for collecting and treating waste. Individuals can separate trash into recyclable materials etc.

Try to use reusable bags to make your purchases at the store. Thus you avoid throwing piles of plastic bags that can become pollutants and you especially avoid that stores do end up making millions of tons of them each year.

Adopt Better Modes of Travel

Bike, public transport, carpooling, these are some of the more environmentally friendly modes of travel that you can try out. The alternatives are numerous to avoid resorting to individual vehicles that are synonymous with pollution, congestion. And also increased expenses for their user.

As part of the sustainable environment project, the Windstar project seeks to promote the use of these alternative modes of travel for all of its current members.

Practice Eco-Gardening

Gardening without wasting water resources, without using pesticides, in short, without harming our environment, is a smart way to help your environment while also getting something back in return. Even if you live in an urban area it is possible to practice eco-gardening in your own small yard. In fact, it is encouraged that you try eco-friendly gardening practices in your own yard so that you can have your own source of fresh food and also help the environment at the same time.

The Windstar foundation has published a short guide to help budding gardeners, and you can check it out if you need to have an idea of where to start when it comes to eco-gardening.

These are just some of the methods that the Windstar foundation encourages everyone to try out. These are all very simple ways that you can help out the environment, but even if they are simple, they have got a huge overall impact too.
