You all know selective sorting and recycling but there are other simple steps you can take to protect our dear planet.
Maybe not a common knowledge, but solid soaps are an ecological alternative to shower gel and shampoo. Indeed, solid soaps produce almost no waste. They are often sold in cardboard or other biodegradable packaging. Moreover, they generally contain much less chemical substances than industrial soaps. In addition, I don't know if you were aware of it but industrial soaps have a lot of water which makes them less preservable, hence the need for a lot of preservatives.
Solid soap seems to be a good alternative because of its packaging but also because of its composition.
First of all, it's economical, your electricity bill will thank you. Indeed, using the washing machine at 30/40 degrees consumes much less electricity than at higher temperature. And yes, choosing 30/40 degree detergents allows you to pollute less. If everyone goes for low temperature detergents, the national CO2 consumption would decrease drastically. But Be careful, although using the washing machine at 30/40 could be favoured but some really dirty clothes and linens need higher temperatures.

We rarely think about it, but our computer or laptop chargers and other devices still consume electricity even when we “think” are not using them. Our appliances on standby, still consume electricity.
Batteries are a very hazardous waste. Indeed, when batteries decompose, they release metals that pollute the environment strongly. The metals contained in batteries are rare and it is important for our planet to recycle them. So don't throw them in the garbage, there are still collection points everywhere for this purpose. Batteries are also extremely flammable and present a risk of explosion and fire.
