Growing Beard Save Water Upto 31,200 Litres Annually

Guys good news is.. You just not look cool with beard on; but also contributing to planet by conserving water.

Image Artist: Atif

Image Artist: Ashfak Patel

When you do not shave you save water. Let’s look at potential saving which is possible when you do not shave for a year. According to Ashfak, who is growing beard for some time now believes; beard not just save water also keep your skin away from the dust, which helps in prevention of skin diseases and also gives you a “Mainly Look”

A typical shave (With tap water flow at 12 Litres/Min) takes 8 to 10 minutes and an office goer shave easily 3 to 5 times a week. Since we looking at arriving potential saving, we consider 10 minute as tap running every shave and 5 times a week as count. Therefore

Math is simple to understand..

10 Mins x 12 Ltrs x 5 Times x 52 Weeks = 31,200 litres

Beard Style = Conservation of Water = Green Hero

Grow Beard…Save Water, Save World. Be Green Hero

Plastic Trash Bags — Green Alternatives

Plastic Trash Bags — Green Alternatives

 

When did we start feeling the need to line our kitchen trash cans with paper or plastic bags? Was it the 1930s when the first American supermarket opened and customers carried their goods home in paper bags? Maybe it began when Union Carbide starting selling Glad garbage bags in the 1960s. How about the 1970s when plastic grocery bags were introduced as an alternative to paper bags?

What do people do with plastic grocery bags after the groceries are unloaded and put away? Google “ways to reuse plastic grocery bags”, one of the top responses will be as a trash can liner, especially for kitchen trash cans.

With more Indian municipalities banning single-use plastic bags, those who reuse them to line their trash cans are faced with a dilemma of what to use instead. This presents a good opportunity to search for a green alternative.

Plastic Trash Bags — Green Alternatives

PLASTIC BAGS

Plastic bags are made from fossil fuels and use energy throughout their life cycle. After one’s stash of single-use plastic bags is used up, then what? A greener alternative to buying standard kitchen trash bags would be to purchase 100% recycled plastic bags. Beware of biodegradable plastic bags. Landfills are designed so that trash does not rot. A biodegradable plastic bag in a landfill is just another plastic bag.

PAPER BAGS

Paper bags are made from trees and manufacturing them generates greenhouse gases and pollution. For a greener alternative, look for 100% recycled paper bags. Waxed paper seems to be making a comeback as a moisture barrier for paper trash bags. Paper bags will break down in nature especially when wet, but they do not biodegrade in a landfill.

 

NO BAG

Why purchase a bag just to fill it up with trash and throw it away? Go with the free option and skip the trash can bag—go bag less.

Starch Based Bio-Plastics

Using bags made from corn starch should be a better alternative to plastic and paper, as they are sturdy and easy to use and degrade without any side effects.

Going Bag less and Green

Using reusable garbage bags is an efficient particle on going bag less , It cost effective and with little effort we can save a lot on our carbon footprint.

CLEANING

The trash can does need to be cleaned but not as often as we thought. The trash can is small and easily fits in the kitchen sink. A laundry room sink or even bathtub would work too. With a little water and green cleaner, the trash can cleaning task is accomplished quickly and painlessly. It’s just not that icky.

With a little extra care, kitchen trash bags and liners can be eliminated, which saves money and is a green alternative to bags.

What are the environmental impacts of paper versus plastic bags? Is one better than the other? What is the “greener” choice?

.

Pollution and Environmental Damage

  • Trees act as a carbon sink by removing the carbon from CO2 and storing it as cellulose in the trunk while releasing the oxygen back into the air. Cutting down forests depletes this and other benefits trees provide.
  • Accidents and spills from oil and natural gas extraction, refining, transportation, and distribution have already had far reaching and catastrophic environmental impacts. There is no reason to believe this will not continue.
  • Some equipment, chemical compounds, and processes used to make paper and plastic bags are harmful and cause pollution.
  • Bags made from recycled materials may use fewer resources but recycling is not without environmental impact.
  • U.S. EPA statistics show that paper bags are recycled 5 times more than plastic bags.
  • Plastic bags made from corn or other biomaterials and Kraft type paper bags are compostable. If compostable plastic bags get mixed in with other plastic recycling, they may contaminate it.
  • Paper bags will biodegrade in nature, plastic bags will not. Birds, fish, and other wildlife may become entangled in or ingest plastic bags or parts of plastic bags.
  • Some municipalities’ efforts to ban single-use plastic bags are in part to mitigate the amount of time and money they spend dealing with plastic bag litter.

Waste and Recycling

The Bottom Line

Both paper and plastic bags have an environmental impact. Is one “greener” than the other? It depends on whom you talk to or where you get your information, and how you interpret what you learn. Keep in mind comparisons can be tricky and sometimes confusing. For instance, one might need 1-3 plastic grocery bags to hold what fits in 1 paper grocery bag so bag-per-bag comparisons may be misleading.

Instead of debating paper versus plastic, perhaps we should look at other alternatives…a topic for another post.

What is PDCB ?

PDCB or para-Dichlorobenzene is a white to colourless crystalline solid with a mothball-like odour, commonly used as base product to manufacturer toilet fresheners.

Effect on Health:

PDCB has been classified by  International Agency for Research on Cancer(IARC) as a Group 2B carcinogen, possibly carcinogenic to humans. The vapor of PDCB is toxic to insects. In humans and other animals, PDCB is broken down in the body to form other compounds that may be harmful to cells or organs such as the liver

How you get exposed to PDCB ? 

People are most likely to be exposed to PDCB by breathing in the vapors emitted by PDCB based air fresheners & moth balls. When you smell these air fresheners, you are actually inhaling the harmful chemical.

About PDCB and it effects on Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urinal_deodorizer_block ( read 3rd Paragraph)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1,4-Dichlorobenzene (read last paragraph)

List the states in US were PDCB is ban.
