World Environment Day Greetings For Students And Children
Going green calls for putting the planet’s interests above yours and it can yield financial benefits too.
With World Environment Day being celebrated this week, we tell you about eco-friendly measures that also save money.
- Energy-efficient bulbs for lighter bills
Energy-efficient lighting equipment will prevent outdated lighting options from burning a hole in your pocket.
Smart tip: If you have an independent house, installing solar panels can lower your electricity bills even more. A mix of LED and solar lights can cut your bill outgo by 60%.
- Shop for stars, slash electricity consumption
Five-star rated appliances not only reduce energy consumption but lower electricity bills by 12%.
Smart tip: Saving gets compounded in the case of refrigerator as its running time is more. Extra cost of a 5-star appliance is recovered within 2-3 years while saving continues till it is in use.
- Zoom on eco-friendly fuel
A move towards Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) will not only curb air pollution, but also reduce your fuel cost burden.
Smart tip: A diesel car is about Rs 1.15 lakh costlier and more expensive to maintain than its petrol variant. For a new buyer who changes cars every 4-5 years, a petrol variant will be more cost-efficient. However, a CNG variant costs about Rs 60,000 more, which can be recouped within two years.
- Sharing is saving
Carpooling or ride-sharing is environment as well as pocket friendly.
Smart tip: Ditch cab for CNG auto rickshaw twice in a week for additional saving.
- Adopt sustainable travel
Sustainable travel practices include reducing plastic waste, staying in homestays and opting for local tourist operators to support local tourism.
Smart tip: Carry a reusable water bottle instead of buying bottled water.
- Recycle e-waste to net gains
82% of India‘s e-waste is personal devices, as per Global E-Waste Monitor. Do not let your functional mobile phones and other devices waste away in a corner; tap recycling firms to realize their value.
Smart tip: You can sell unoperative devices in electronic markets for spare parts.
