WHAT TO DO TO PROTECT OUR ENVIROMENT AND LIVE IN A SUSTAINABLE WORLD?

We can come up with simple but effective solutions to protect the environment. We can pay the bills online. We must turn off the water while brushing our teeth. We must unplug the household appliances that we do not use.(Medine Emin)
For a sustainable world, studies can be done in many areas. Climate change is a very important problem, we have to produce new things to solve them. For example, we can prevent climate change by using less cars, using public transportation or reducing the use of perfume. In the field of technology, thousands of products from brain chips to air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators to dishwashers both increase energy efficiency and prevent environmental pollution by performing high performance with low energy. . It is very important for eco-conscious consumers to look not only at performance and price, but also at energy saving rates when purchasing small household appliances, white goods and other technological products for the sustainability of resources. Recent studies show that an energy efficient device can save energy with an average of 10-15 years of use, and the investment made in the device is increased.(Hasibe Nurcan)
As you know, some of our people unconsciously pollute the world and are not economical. With this issue in mind I thought of a solution.
