10 Ways To Control Pollution

21-10-2019

The rise in pollution has been unprecedented in the past few decades. It may take a long time to bring it under control, and for that, becoming self-aware is important. When you become aware of the adverse effects of pollution on the environment, is when you start looking for ways to improve the situation. In that respect, your home is the best place to start.

The steps that you take for controlling pollution at home may seem like small steps, but remember, it takes every drop to fill an ocean!

    • Equip Your Home

While trying to do your bit for the environment, make sure your home is well-equipped. From installing weatherproof or monsoon-proof windows to wind-resistant doors, weatherproof your home from the extremities of the environment. These days, weatherproof doors and windows are made with materials that have minimal impact on the environment, which, in itself, is an added benefit for the environment.

    • Choosing Your Fenestration Manufacturers

When it comes to installing wind-resistant windows or weatherproof doors, make sure you choose a manufacturer that uses green processes and offers products that are environment-friendly.

    • The Vehicles You Drive

Vehicles play a major role in the increased air pollution today. While installing weatherproof doors and windows can go a long way in keeping the indoor pollution under control, you need to do your part for the outdoor air as well. Invest in hybrid and green vehicles, use public transport whenever possible, and keep your vehicles serviced on time to keep your vehicle’s harmful emissions under control.

    • Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Reduce the use of consumables and invest in reusable items instead of disposable ones. Finally, ensure that you recycle all that you can.

    • Waste Disposal

From creating a compost pile to having a separate bin for your recyclables, ensure that the ways in which you dispose of your daily waste are good for the environment.

    • Monsoon Measures

You need to pay a little more attention during the monsoons. For example, if you have a compost pile, you need to ensure it is properly protected from the environment. Monsoon proof windows and doors can keep a lot of elements out of your home, but that doesn’t mean that you should forget about them. Rainwater harvesting is another measure you should look into during the monsoons.

    • Reusable Water Bottles

Another small step you can take every day is to carry a reusable water bottle that you can fill again and again instead of buying disposable water bottles. You can reduce your use of plastic by doing that.

    • Carry Your Bags When Shopping

While a lot of places have banned plastic bags, it is still a good idea to carry your own bags when you head to the market for some shopping.

    • Don’t Litter

It may not seem like a major deal for you at the time but throwing small pieces of trash when you are out and about, even when there is no dustbin around, is not the best idea. Keep hold of your trash until you get home or at least until you can find a proper place to dispose of it.

    • The Products You Buy

It is, of course, very important that you use products at your home, office, kitchen, etc. that do not use chemicals. From being washed away in the water to emitting VOCs into the air, chemical products do a lot more harm than they help!

Small measures indeed, but that is what makes them easy to follow. With these, you can start doing your bit to help control pollution.
