Abandon the plastic dishes and imported products on New Year's table calls upon the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) of Russia.
"Try to plan the menu New Year's table so that you can use mainly local produce. Pickled tomatoes near Moscow greener imported from Holland, fresh tomatoes, for greenhouse gas emissions in transit to the store thousands of times less" — advised environmentalists.
"Instead of buying plastic bottles of water, the water can be cleaned with a filter. Also possible is to give preference to products with fewer wraps. You can do this, if you buy some products on the market", urges WWF.
As representatives of the fund, Russians often prefer to put disposable dishes on New Year's table — however, you can make nature a gift that serve a table of glass, porcelain, earthenware or metal utensils.
In addition, WWF-Russia Council, together strings of incandescent lamps use LED garlands that use 80-90% less energy than incandescent lamps with garlands.
Also better for the environment to send electronic greeting cards, note in the fund. "E-cards will not only save you time and money, but also reduce your" ecological footprint. "Production of paper cards is expensive wood, fuel and water" — explain the environmentalists.
WWF urges not to contribute to overconsumption and send gifts to their loved ones who do not end up in the trash — for example, gifts, experiences, concert tickets or certificates charities.
