Eco-choices more effective than recycling

What do a mobile phone, a shopping bag, hair shampoo, and a palm tree on the Charles De Gaulle roundabout in Warsaw have in common? Let's also include a water bottle to make it a little easier.

But it doesn't have to. Just a few changes make the most remarkable difference to the environment.

Drought: a natural but extreme condition under our control - It pays to go green!

Drought: a natural but extreme condition under our control

Po, the longest river in Italy, which measures about 650 km, is drying up and may disappear one day. Other regions of the globe, from Poland to the United States and Africa, are also experiencing similar phenomena. Drought is a natural yet extreme phenomenon that is increasing in severity due to climate change. We should consider what can be done to mitigate it and how we will adapt to its effects in the future. Every one of us, every day, has the opportunity to do so! By joining forces, we can be unstoppable!

Comparison of carbon credits: CER, VER & TER

If you want to buy a car, you can take a loan. A mortgage will allow you to buy your dream house, and with a student loan, you can finance your college tuition. So it's not surprising that you might associate a “carbon credit” with extra money to buy coal. In reality, it’s something completely different! Find out how carbon credits can help reduce CO2 emissions.

The ozone hole: a story that inspires eco-action! - It pays to go green!

The ozone hole: a story that inspires eco-action!

Suppose you remember the 1980s, Madonna's hits, and new episodes of Dynasty. In that case, you also probably remember reports about the harmfulness of aerosols and refrigerants in fridges and freezers and discussions about the need to protect the ozone layer. Thanks to the global action taken at the time, the localised disappearance of the ozone layer, referred to as the ozone hole, has been halted, making it one of the greatest successes in the history of transnational cooperation on climate and environmental protection. We should keep this in mind as we are facing the next challenge right now!

Methane – Greenhouse gases - It pays to go green!

Methane – Greenhouse gases

When thinking of climate change measures, we most often associate them with reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Yes, CO2 has the most significant impact on climate change. However, other gases are also exacerbating global warming. This is especially true since the amount of methane reached a record high in the history of measurements last year. Find out what methane is and where its emissions come from.

Green building is the future? - It pays to go green!

Green building is the future?

There are more than 7.7 billion people on Earth. By 2050, we are expected to number almost 10 billion. Regardless of gender, race, origin or other features, everybody needs a place to live permanently or at least temporarily. Construction investments of all kinds are therefore vital for the environment. While striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, one should remember the opportunities offered by the green building.

Melting glaciers. Now, in East Antarctica! - It pays to go green!

Melting glaciers. Now, in East Antarctica!

It was twice the size of Warsaw or roughly the size of Rome or Manhattan. The Conger shelf glacier had been unstable for some time and eventually collapsed in mid-March. This marked the first such event ever observed in the eastern part of Antarctica. What is more, it happened during - by the region's standards - record high temperatures. Many factors indicate that climate warming may be the cause. For this reason, we must remind ourselves that, wherever we are, we all influence the melting of glaciers.
