Recycling Guide

Today I am going to be writing about all of the different ways that people can recycle on any given day, many people are frightened or scared of this concept and as a result they don’t do anything to start. However, I’m keen to end this dangerous cycle and am hoping that this post will do something to kick start people into thinking about what they are doing to our beautiful planet and all of the organisms that inhabit it. Firstly, I’m going to come out and say that recycling is a crucial factor that looks at conserving natural resources and ultimately it contributes massively towards helping the environment and the species that live within it too. Here you can find some of the most useful methods to recycle in and around your home, these tips have been sanctioned by the recycling guide in the United Kingdom.

Recycling Scrap Metal

Firstly, I’m going to tackle household recycling, it’s essential that you realise that recycling in and around the home is very easy and by thinking about what items you purchase on a regular basis you will easily realise that they can all, pretty much, be recycled in one way or another. Firstly, you should be looking at the packaging on each of the items, it is a UK standard to have recycling notes on any consumable product and this varies considerably based upon what type of product you have – such as paper, metal, glass, plastic or a range of other material types too. Other items can also be recycled but this may be more difficult, examples of this include furniture, building materials of any form, a range of electronic equipment and also vehicles too.

Scrap metal is one thing that is often overlooked but can actually provide a benefit to you if you choose to recycle it, this is because scrap metal can sometimes be very valuable, the key is to know what type of scrap metal that you have and ultimately how much it is worth to a scrap metal yard. You should also be ensuring that you are purchasing products that can be recycled, this is something that is regularly overlooked, however it is easily done – you can simply do some reading before you buy any item and then put it into the appropriate recycling bin that your house has to have by law.

Once again, I would love to thank all of you for reading this individual post on my website, I hope that all of these tips do help you in your mission to become more careful in how you personally pollute the environment. Remember, don’t live in denial, anything that you purchase should be, in an ideal sense, recycled and therefore you won’t have this hanging over your head in the future. Please continue reading my environmental blog posts and of course if you want to get into contact to discuss any of the topics here in more detail, comment below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Ways We Can Tackle Environmental Issues

Air pollution is a huge concern for all who know what it entails. Particularly in China, but also in a wide number of countries across the planet, it is a massive issue that causes a large quantity of lost productivity and also health expenses too. There are a wide range of basic solutions that could be utilised in order to end or at the very least limit air pollution across any of the major countries that are currently pollution the air in the world. Firstly, the number one method would be stop using coal as an energy source and eventually try to get away from using any of the fossil fuels that notoriously pollute our planet.

Action at Coal Power Plant in Beijing

Unfortunately it’s not quite as simple as that, many governments are highly reluctant to change and some countries are not fazed by the concept of polluting the planet to animal’s and human demise. One factor that could help to propagate the spreading of this information would be to publicise air quality information across all major news stations and therefore enable it to be easily accessed by the public. One method that could be utilised in tackling the actual act of polluting the planet would be to tighten the controls of power plant emissions, this would force these companies to search for new ways to produce power, rather than using traditionally fossil fuel based methods that are extremely toxic for Earth and all of its species.

We should also act to try to introduce cleaner fuel standards and make the currently gradual change to utilising electric cars much faster – and across the world too. Petrol and diesel are extremely toxic to the atmosphere and are undoubtedly speeding up global warming to a much higher rate. We should also try to prevent the creation of new power stations across the world, currently there are very few nations that put any sort of restriction on the production of these buildings, this is a fundamental issue that we face and unless we stop this one at the root it will continue long into the future and by the time we realise, it may already be too late. In addition to this, when new power planets are sanctioned, they should be limited in size and total output, therefore we can manage their emissions much more readily.

Many thanks again for all of you true activists for reading my post, you are the people that are making the difference to the world – so many people are not taking any form of action and are simply talking about it thinking that they are helping – this is not the case and it’s crucial that we recognise this. Please share the link to my blog to all of your environmentalist friends and hopefully we together can make a difference. I’m not sure if this will be the case, but hopefully it will be, fingers crossed and lets hope for a bright and pollution free future for us, our friends, our children and all of our future generations too.

Scrap Metal Prices

One thing that people have been asking me since my last post is how they can value their pieces of scrap metal. Scrap metal prices are notoriously temperamental. Ultimately though, in Australia it is difficult to pin down a particular price of a particular piece of scrap metal because they vary so much across the entirety of the country. Generally people say that scrap metal prices are higher in the eastern regions of the country, however there are pockets in the west where prices of scrap metal are high too. We’ve taken a look at the prices in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and in Victoria too. Adelaide can also have really high prices of copper. I think that there is a diverse range of prices because of the demand in different regions, I think that this is likely to change in the future as metals become increasingly rare in the regions listed above.

Scrap Metal Prices

I think it’s essential for people to check what metal they have before they take it to the scrap yards, they should separate their metal pieces out and weigh them up, then take them to the scrap metal yards for valuation. It’s also pretty important to see the prices before taking them there to stop yourself from getting ripped off on prices. The most popular types of scrap metal to sell are scrap copper, scrap aluminium, scrap steel, scrap brass, scrap lead, scrap iron and of course for the lucky few who have some, scrap gold. Many people will be happy with the prices that they will receive for their metal. However materials are traded in a very similar way to stocks are and so prices of them are very volatile. One day you might go down to the scrap metal yard and receive 10 pounds for a piece and the following day only 5, it really does vary that much.

The most important consideration that scrap yards have to make about individual sales is the grade of metal that is being offered. The most popular types of grades are grade 1, grade 2 and a variety of sub grades too. If you have grade 1 metal then you are in luck, this is by far the most valuable type of metal and can be sold for a far higher price than grades 2, 3 and 4. If you are keen to learn some more about all of the different types of metal then please continue reading my future blog posts, I will be posting back here every week with updates about how to recycle, how to keep the environment clean and also how to make some money from ridding your home of any unsightly scrap metal that may be lying around. We will also be identifying the best scrap yards throughout Australia so that our readers can get the most value out of their various materials too.

A Post About Pollution

Today’s post is going to be explaining what pollution actually is, I will begin be defining the concept – it is effectively the introduction of various contaminants into the natural environment that causes damaging change to anything residing there. It’s a fairly diverse statement that covers a range of different concepts, however pollution can be in the form of energy pollution – such a light, heat or even noise – yes, noise pollution is a real issue in some situations. However the major risk that pollution is caused by is chemical pollution – in the form of pollutants. Various different types of chemical pollutants exist and some are certainly more damaging than others, these are not found in nature but when they are it can cause considerable damage to animals, people and anything in the local area.

Air Pollution

I don’t actually believe that there is enough said about pollution in schools, in the press, in general conversations between people all across the world – it is a monumentally sized issue and is going to be the fundamental cause of our eventual eradication if we do not take action. Many people class themselves as advocates of pollution management, however very few people actually take any form of action against it. It’s a difficult subject to breach in many cases, I understand that, however – it’s something that needs tackling and it would be great to see more people taking action to tackle the world’s greatest issue to date.

I really do think that until something catastrophic happens, we are going to see more and more species becoming extinct and eventually it will be too late to save them, it is currently unknown the effects that pollution will have in the future. What we do know is that we are seeing higher and higher levels and it is expected that in the next 10 years we will see twice as much pollution seeping into our local environments than we have seen in 2016. This is a shocking statistic but it is very real and we are failing to act.

The governments around the world have been meeting repeatedly in order to make a plan to tackle pollution but due to the stubbornness of certain nations, there has been little progress. In an idealistic world we would set a maximum limit across each country and also take additional steps to prevent this problem from getting worse, as it currently is in almost every single country on the planet. How many animals will die and how many ecosystems will become toxic before people realise the adverse affects that pollution is causing not only humans, but every single type of living organism on our lovely Earth.

Welcome to Happy Exercising

Hello and welcome to happy exercising, my own personal blog where I intend on writing all about what you can do to keep yourself fit, whether or not it is related to your diet, how to exercise, upcoming types of exercising and a range of other health related activities too. I’m hoping to keep you all updated on a weekly basis, sometimes I expect I will be posting a lot more regularly and other times possibly not so often. Either way, I’m sure you’ll all be very keen to continue visiting my blog once you see what I have in store for you. I will let you in on a little secret, I will be interviewing a range of substantial figures in the fitness and health scene and bringing you their thoughts on how you can keep your own body healthy in 2016.

Environment

I decided to start this blog in order to help not only all of you reading this now, but also to ensure that I personally keep myself updated on all the modern health musings that are going on. It’s a really important concept and idea for me, I think keeping your body as healthy as can be is extremely essential in order to live a happy and healthy life. Some people aren’t as keen on this thought pattern, although I believe that with some well reported information I will be able to convince a few people to change their stance on the subject. I would love to be able to say that I have helped people get motivated and change their lives for the better in whatever way possible – And I feel that happy exercising is probably the best way for me to achieve this.

All in all, if you like what you read here at happy exercising then please share the link to all of your friends. I’d love to become somewhat of an authority in the field and have spent countless nights thinking of ways that I can do it. I’m also a massive environmentalist and am a real advocate for keeping the world a clean place. I think that it’s essential in order to see us progress as a human race and if we don’t do something about keeping the planet as we found it soon then we will be facing extinction – it won’t solely be the animals that we currently put through turmoil on a daily basis. It’s not fair and we are seeing extinction levels raise to levels that are comparable to what we saw when the dinosaurs went extinct many millions of years go. This is not what anybody wants to see and it is certainly time to take action for all of us here on planet Earth.
