"This month Little Citizens for Climate celebrates its first anniversary. Here is the first thing you could do to celebrate with us .
CHANGE YOUR INTERNET EXPLORER !
Ecosia: ""profits are used to plant trees""
Lilo : ""your research funds social and environmental projects free of charge""
SAVE ENERGY !
A TV box consumes 3 times more than a television set and an Internet box, 6 times more. Do not leave your box in standby if you are not using it. This will save you about 30 euros per year.
STOP WITH THE PLASTIC STRAWS !
100 million straws are used per day in the European Union. Alternatives to plastic exist: wheat, rice, cardboard, bamboo, stainless steel. Why not use them?
Stop the ad in your mailbox! PUT DOWN OUR STOP-AD
40 kg of advertising per French every year
1 million tonnes distributed
1 million tonnes distributed
40kg of advertising = 40kg of wood, 500Litres of water, 200kWh of electricity, a lot of ink with heavy metals...
SORT YOUR WASTE!
In 2016, we produced 4.6 tonnes of waste per capita. In any case, the best waste is the one that is not produced.
GIVE BACK TO THE EARTH
By composting you can easily reduce the weight of your household waste, which represents 30% of your grey bin, i.e. between 45 and 60 kg/inhab/year.
STOP COTTON SWABS!
Earwax has protective, lubricating and antibacterial properties. It is a self-cleaning agent that transports dead cells from the eardrum to the exit of the ear. When earwax is present at the entrance to the duct, the aesthetics want us to remove the excess...
WALK OR RIDE A BIKE!
Transport is responsible for 29% of France's greenhouse gas emissions."" So walking or cycling are much less polluting and very healthy.
SUPPORT OUR ASSOCIATION
Don't forget that until 31 December a donation to Little Citizens for Climate will be deducted at 66% from your parents' taxes, if they are tax residents of France.
Don't throw anymore, finish your plate or get the unsold goods!
10 million tons of food are thrown away every year in France
29 kg per year and per inhabitant in France
It is 1 meal per week per Frenchman
Several applications can help to limit food waste such as TooGoodToGo & Phenix offering unsold baskets from retailers at reduced prices.
Switch to reusable cotton!
Make-up remover cotton pads are :
- 5260 litres of water for 1kg.
- Cotton consumes 24% of the pesticides produced worldwide.
About 2,200 disposable cotton discs are purchased per person per year.
But also to create them and manufacture them yourself:
The Best waste is the one that is not produced! The vast majority of synthetic sponges are made of plastic resin foam (derived from petroleum)
Give up plastic bottles for a FLASK!
- 1 million plastic bottles thrown away per second worldwide
only 7% are recycled
10% are found in the oceans
- 100 to 1000 years for a bottle of water to decompose
BRING YOUR CLOTH BAG! 10 packaging thrown away per day and per household, i.e. 24 million tonnes of household waste per year.
1.88 billion euros per year in France for packaging waste management
In 30 years, the volume of packaging waste has increased fivefold.
Prefer bulk, buy over cutting, refuse plastic bags, come with your own containers. Making your own unique bulk bag is also possible
COOKING OF GOOD SEASONAL PRODUCTS
If you too want to make this delicious pumpkin soup you will need:
For 4 people :
- 1 pretty pumpkin
- 1 tablespoon vegetable stock
- 20 Cl of cream
- Salt and pepper to your taste
After washing the pumpkin, it must be emptied and cut into pieces before being steamed for 20 minutes
Keep 50 Cl of cooking juice to mix with the vegetable broth, then mix it all together.
Finally, add the cream before serving.
You can also sprinkle with parsley or fresh chives.
After tasting this soup, you will not be able to do without it, and it is also a gesture for the environment because the carbon footprint to cook this delicious soup is very low since the vegetables come from our region.

Beautiful teeth and eco-friendly!
4.7 billion discarded toothbrushes per year
1 toothbrush = 1,5Kg for its manufacture.
100 to 1000 years depending on the plastics used to degrade 1 toothbrush (not to mention electronic brushes that contain plastics and electronics.)
To avoid this pollution a solution exists: the wooden toothbrush!
There are several types with rechargeable heads.
