The Environment: Eco-tips
Rífa fyrst pappírshluta límmiðans af, leysa fyrst upp með vatni ef nauðsynlegt er og rífa af. Seigar límrestarnar sem eftir verða er hægt að strjúka með olíu og nudda síðan af með eldhússvampi sem dýft hefur verið í olíu.

Nature.is has made an online version of the deck of 52 Eco-tips for you and the environment. Anyone can use them on their websites, free of charge. You only have to insert the code below which then publishes the cards at random on your site.
You can adjust the width of the cards but the height is constant at 400 pixels. To adjust the width you simply write the desired width where it says 290 in the code below. Those knowledgeable of AJAX can make a connection that loads a new card at the desirable interval. For their information 290 stands for the width. It is not advisable to use a width exceeding 470 pixels because the graphic is 470 pixels and becomes blurred if made larger.

Til að ná burtu sérstaklega erfiðum blettum af flísum er gott að þurrka flísarnar með blöndu af heitu vatni og ediki í jöfnum hlutföllum.
Einnig er hægt að nudda hálfri sítrónu yfir erfiðu blettina og látið liggja á og síðan þvo af og skola vel.

Ecologically conscious shopping or eco-shopping is about choosing the product which is less harmful to the environment compared to other products that serve the same need and have the same or lower outcome in LCA-analysis.
In order to facilitate the choice of goods and services that are environmentally friendly, Nature.is has compiled 11 eco-conscious guidelines that touch upon the most relevant sectors. The guidelines are clear and simple and help consumers pick the best available products from the viewpoint of health, environment and even social conditions, for what we usually call sustainable development.
Here in the horizontal row you see icons representing the guidelines and in the vertical column you see icons representing the different product categories. If you click on those icons you can read about each guideline and each product category. It is also easy to see which guidelines apply to each product type, as the relevant guideline icons are visible in a horizontal line next to the product.
The guidelines are: Energy, Fuel, Water use, Allergy, Hazardous Chemicals / Synthetic Chemicals, Heavy metals, Safety sheet, Environmental labes, Fair trade, Work environment and Recycling.
One or more of those guidelines are valid for every product. As soon as we grasp what we have to look for when choosing environmentally friendly products, eco-shopping becomes pure joy.
Practice makes perfect in eco-shopping like everything else. Our Earth cannot tolerate more exploitation and the disrespect often shown today.
Let´s join our hands together and practice eco-shopping!

Heitt bað orsakar móðu á baðspeglinum. En það er hægt að koma í veg fyrir móðu á baðspeglinum með því að láta nokkra sentimetra af köldu vatni leka í baðkarið áður en skrúfað er frá heita vatninu.
