When we lose our waste in the different selective collection containers, we try to manage to be able to take advantage of all the possible material.  The General volume of urban solid waste (MSW) that we generate is increasingly high.  Approximately 25 million tons are generated per year.  Many of these wastes can be valued and recovered.  However, others cannot be easily separated and he knew recovery is quite complex.  To avoid that most of the waste goes to the landfill, an attempt is made to find a way to manage it.  This is what we call waste recovery.  In this article we are going to tell you what the recovery of waste is, how important it is and how it is carried out.  What is waste recovery? Of the large amount of solid urban waste that we generate at the end of the year, around 40% are perfectly recoverable.  We are talking about waste that is separated in separate collection containers or recycling containers (link).  Once these wastes were separated at their source, they were taken to different waste treatment plants.  It is there where they can be treated in different ways and give a new life and incorporation of the waste as a new product.  For example, new raw materials can be obtained through glass, plastic, paper and cardboard waste.  On the other hand, the other 60% of all the waste that we generate at the end of the year is not so easy to separate and its recovery is more complex.  As they are not suitable for recycling, they would have to be taken to controlled landfills.  In landfills they do not have another useful life, but are buried.  The only thing that can be used from this waste is the extraction of the biogas (link) that is generated during its decomposition by anaerobic bacteria.  To avoid that most of this waste that does not have a very fixed destination ends up in a landfill, we try to find a way to manage it to obtain benefits from it.  This is the recovery of waste.  The official definition of waste recovery is found in the waste directive 2008/98 / EC and is the following: Operation that sought the main objective that the waste can serve a useful purpose to replace other materials that otherwise would have been used for fulfill a particular function.  It is about preparing the residence to fulfill a particular function, both in facilities and in the economy in general.  Types of waste recovery When looking for the new value that a waste may have, there are different forms and analyzes that must be given first.  The nature of the remainder must be analyzed, what type of function it has and what type of function it will be given.  We are going to analyze the different types of waste recovery that exist: • Energy recovery: this recovery takes place thanks to an activity called waste incineration.  During this incineration all the waste is burned and it is obtained in small amounts of these and energy that comes from the materials they contain.  In the case of domestic waste, they are used in one way or another depending on the levels of energy efficiency in the process.  We must assess whether the energy we use to incinerate this waste is greater or less than that which we will generate with the incineration itself.  One of the fuels obtained from this process is solid recovered fuel (CSR).  • Material recovery: it is a type of recovery in which new materials are obtained.  It can be said that it is like recycling part of this waste to avoid the use of new raw materials.  We remember that, if we reduce the consumption of raw materials, we will be reducing the overexploitation of natural resources (link) and the impacts on the environment.  For this reason, one of the most important valuations is the material valuation.  In this type of recovery, the materials that are valued are light packaging, paper, cardboard, requested and organic matter.  With these materials it is evaluated whether some type of composting or anaerobic digestion can be carried out.  As a last option, if there is no other way to recover this waste, it is sent to controlled landfills where it ends up being disposed of.  This release has to be safe and certain measures must be adopted to guarantee the protection of both human health and the environment.  Waste recovery in Spain Our country has carried out various studies that show how the countries of the European Union manage solid urban waste.  In these studies, the percentages of waste that are destined for composting, incineration, recycling and landfill can be observed.  Each destination is selected for various types of waste.  The first thing that is tried with each waste is to value them to get a profit from them.  In the event that no type of economic or produced benefit can be obtained, the waste is destined to a controlled landfill from which only biogas can be extracted.  Spain, compared to other countries such as Germany, Denmark or Belgium allocates a high percentage of all waste to the controlled landfill.  This percentage is at 57%.  As you can see, it is too high a figure.  The objective of correct waste management is to make the most of it to reduce the use of raw materials.  Spain does not have good waste management in this regard.  This study also reveals that only 9% of all waste goes to incineration.  With these data it can be concluded that Spain does not take advantage of the energy contained in these wastes and uses new raw materials that could be replaced by these recycled materials.  The recovery of waste is an increasingly used technique since it can give an economic value to waste.  We have to have the vision of entrepreneurs in which if a waste does not provide any benefit, it will not be reused or recycled.  For this reason, it is necessary to think that the recovery of waste is an economic tool.

Today we are going to talk about one of the most famous snakes in the world.  It is known as the coral snake.  It is one of the species with the most striking colors, among which red, white and black predominate.  It is well known for its lethal venom and for being considered one of the most feared in the world.  This is why this snake fully deserves the article.  We are going to explain all the characteristics, habitats, area of ​​distribution, feeding and reproduction of the coral snake.  Main characteristics This type of snake is also known by the name of the chili tail snake or coralillos.  This group of poisonous snakes belong to the Elapidae family.  They come from tropical areas where high temperatures and high humidity abound, accompanied by a regime of abundant rainfall.  The coral snake can be divided into two large groups: • Old world coral snakes: in this group belong 16 species grouped into two different genera.  • The coral snakes of the new world: to this group belong thirteen species that are grouped into 3 different genera.  It is usually a smaller snake compared to other species.  At most, if its development is the most optimal, we achieve that it does not even grow a meter in length when it reaches the adult stage.  The females are usually much larger than the males, and thanks to this they can be differentiated more easily.  In addition to being small in size, they have a fairly fine and thin body with a very attractive color.  No coral snake has the same color combination on its skin, which makes it quite curious.  In its head the body is intermingled without having any distinctive neck.  Another characteristic of this snake is that it differs from other species that are poisonous by having a circular pupil.  Their head is rounded without a tip and they do not have heat detection wells.  It is not very well known how long these snakes last naturally.  It is known that in captivity they can live up to 20 years.  Behavior or Coral Snake This type of reptile can become very fearful and especially are solitary.  During the day they are in charge of seeking refuge in a burrow or underground cave.  The time it is active is during the night and early in the morning.  This is due to the time Alcides spent looking for food.  The venom that this snake possesses is neurotoxic.  It means that it affects the communication of the brain with all the muscles and makes it difficult for the person who has been stung to move.  If the sting is complete, it is very likely that cardiac and respiratory function will be impaired.  Unfortunately, because this snake has very bright colors it is very attractive to children.  Because of this, there are many reported cases of bites that are due to the curiosity of young people who have tried to pick up a coral snake.  For this reason, it is appreciated that the snakes are quite shy and are not sighted only on a few occasions.  Habitat and feeding of the coral snake This snake can be found mainly in the American continent.  It can also be seen in some areas of the Asian region.  Being a kind of cold blooded it will be used to living in warm areas.  This is done to better regulate its temperature in tropical environments.  However, we can find it in some swamps and bushes with a higher level of humidity.  As for food, like the rest of snakes, it is carnivorous.  The most common is that they can consume other reptiles and even other coral specimens.  In their diet we can find frogs, lizards, small mammals, etc.  The way in which it hunts is by injecting the venom through a sting, in which it opens its jaws and, later, goes on to ingest the entire body of the prey.  Once the body is ingested it begins to assimilate it inside.  Contrary to popular belief, the maximum amount of venom the snake can deliver is related to the length of time the prey can be in its jaw.  It does not depend on the number of times you bite it.  It is true that making multiple bites facilitates and accelerates the transfer of the venom, but it does not mean that it transmits more of it.  Reproduction of the corral snake The coral snake lays between 3 and 5 eggs for each laying in the month of June.  Once the eggs have been laid, they take about 12 weeks to hatch.  Unlike other poisonous snakes that give rise to live young, this snake's babies hatch from eggs that are laid by their mother.  When they are born, they are quite small at just eighteen centimeters in length, although they are already born with great poisonous potential.  The danger of the young can be the same as that of an adult specimen.  Putting the aforementioned case, children as a result of curiosity to see an animal with such attractive colors can be involved in a sting that can be fatal.  A lesson that nature gives us is those animals that do not need any type of camouflage, or vice versa, they are colored is very striking, it is because they can defend themselves.  In this case, the coral snake does not need any type of camouflage since its ability to inject the venom makes it strong enough to hunt its prey and defend itself from its predators.  As you can see, nature is wise and we look at the coral snake way of life as one of the most dangerous snakes in the world.  Luckily for her fame she has become the focus of many people who once they see her do not approach her.

When we have our garden or we want to start forming it, we must take into account the orientation we are in and the hours of sunshine we have at the end of the day.  It is important to have sun resistant outdoor plant species if we have a long exposure during the days.  Now, what species are resistant to direct sunlight?  There are some species that do not tolerate direct sunlight because their leaves or flowers are more sensitive.  Others need humidity or be in the shade.  In this article we are going to help you choose between the species of outdoor plants resistant to the sun and that, in turn, have a great ornamental value that will help you have a very beautiful garden.  Daisies as sun-resistant outdoor plants Daisies are, without a doubt, among the plants that have the best ability to tolerate direct sunlight.  They have white flowers with yellow or orange centers.  The advantage is that they are very common plants almost everywhere on the planet.  This is because they are very resistant not only to direct sunlight, but to various adverse conditions that we can have in our climate.  As the flowers are white, they will be ideal to give some light to our garden and make it more attractive.  They are plants that hardly need care so we should not be too aware of them.  They also don't need a lot of water, so irrigation is not complicated at all.  Hibiscus This plant is another candidate for being very resistant to direct sunlight.  Its flowers are mainly red, but there are also white, pink, yellow, orange and some other colors.  It is one of the plants that withstands the hottest season, both spring and summer.  During their flowering they will beautify the garden with their colorful colors.  It needs direct light to grow well.  Normally, it is on the hottest days of the year where you need some shade so as not to be damaged by the sun's rays.  If the plant is full of flowers it is somewhat more vulnerable.  However, throughout the year it needs many hours of sun to grow healthily.  Bougainvillea Another of the most resistant plants to the sun and that is used for terraces and gardens is the bougainvillea.  It is a plant that grows a lot and serves to cover walls and even walls completely.  It can be kept in a large pot if you like.  There are varieties of this species with flowers of different colors.  There may be pink, white, red, and purple in color.  As the flowering progresses, we can observe how in the center of each flower another flower of a much smaller size comes out.  This mini flower is usually white or light yellow in color.  It is convenient to have this plant in the sunniest area of ​​the garden since it requires many hours of sun.  Geraniums This is another of the sun-resistant outdoor plants.  In Spain you can see geraniums in windows, terraces, balconies and gardens.  Not only is it good at resisting sun rays, but it also offers us a good decoration with its colors and so varied tones.  You can have geraniums in shades of red, white or in a combination of colors.  They are plants that are flowered all year round.  They do not require very demanding care, so you can enjoy your decoration without having to worry about watering it or taking care of it more often.  Rosales It is one of the most resistant flowers if your garden is oriented to the sun.  You will surely want rose bushes for their meaning and beauty.  There are a wide variety of rose bushes, so it is convenient that you inform yourself before buying them.  There are some that may not adapt well in the area where you live.  You can plant some larger varieties or others in miniature.  They are plants that need many hours of sun and, although it seems that it is suffocatingly hot, these plants can handle it very well.  Verbena Verbena is one of the most striking sun-resistant outdoor plants.  They usually have many flowers and are quite colorful.  In addition, it blooms in greater quantity from late spring until the end of summer.  You can have a very colorful garden throughout the hottest season.  As is to be expected of a plant with these characteristics, it is a fairly resistant plant to heat and drought.  There are varieties of verbena with white, pink, red, purple, yellow and blue flowers.  It does not need a lot of water, so you can have it perfectly in sunny and dry places.  In some times of too hot, it is necessary to water something more at times of the day when there is no direct sun.  In this way, we will avoid losing a large part of the irrigation water in perspiration.  On the other hand, in the rest of the year, it is enough to water it twice a week.  Lavender Another of the best-known plants in the world and with great resistance to the sun.  It has an aroma that makes it well known and used in cosmetic and hygiene products.  There are natural air fresheners with lavender that are quite popular.  Its flowers are lilac or violet and decorate the garden or terrace in a spectacular way.  They are small flowers but there are large amounts of flowers together.  It is a plant that grows in large fields and needs a lot of sun to grow well.  This makes the plant quite resistant to direct sun.  It needs to be watered a minimum of twice a week.  One of the easiest sunshine plants to maintain year-round is lavender.  If you live in an area with cooler winters there is no need to worry.  This plant, although it needs sun, also tolerates and supports cold and shade.  As you can see, there are numerous sun-resistant outdoor plants that you can use if your garden has long hours of sun.

As we know, cardboard has become or is becoming a perfect material for making furniture.  Although at first this may seem contradictory, cardboard furniture exists and is gaining more and more relevance.  The most normal thing is to think that these furniture cannot support large amounts of weight because they are made with a somewhat less resistant material.  However, cardboard specially treated for the manufacture of furniture is a resistant, economical and sustainable material.  In this article we are going to explain all the characteristics of cardboard furniture, as well as its main advantages and disadvantages.  Cardboard furniture and the environment Among the main concerns that we currently have about the environment is its conservation and the proper use of natural resources (link).  For construction, industry, etc.  It is important to obtain materials that, during their extraction and use, contaminate as little as possible.  The energy expenditure that must be used in its construction and use must be controlled, since then it would be the same problem.  Recycling is one of the main options you can have to reuse materials that you have no other chance as a product.  Many of the ideas are dedicated to upcycling (link).  However, furniture has been associated with wood for a lifetime and it is difficult to change the mindset that recycled objects or materials can serve well for these uses.  As we are trying in this century, innovation plays a fundamental role in the development of ideas and the manufacture of new products.  For example, cardboard furniture is a revolution that will silence more than one doubt about it and its usefulness.  It is possible to design and manufacture furniture of all kinds with recycled cardboard, since, even if you think otherwise, it is a fairly resistant material.  Main characteristics Cardboard is a material that is made up of several layers of paper that are superimposed.  This gives it greater strength than ordinary paper.  The appearance of the cardboard is delimited by the upper layer which is what we see with the naked eye.  Their finishes can be different and they can be both printed and painted.  Thanks to the intrinsic characteristics of cardboard we can manufacture quite interesting furniture designs that not only fulfill their function of storing objects, but also provide a strong innovative home decoration.  As is evident, cardboard furniture must be kept as far away as possible from humidity or direct contact with water.  As is to be expected, there are no cardboard kitchen furniture, where normally, water is present on a daily basis.  The result of making cardboard furniture designs is quite fun and entertaining.  They are furniture that you can do on your own or buy them already made.  For the more adventurous or hobbyists, this is a very good option to make your own furniture and not die trying.  To get beautiful designs, simply download pdf templates of some very successful furniture designs online.  Some of these templates are free, but others have to be paid for.  The downside that this material can have is that it lasts less than wood or aluminum.  But of course, this is to be expected being cardboard after all.  Normally, the frequency with which we must replace the furniture is greater than ordinary wooden or aluminum furniture.  However, it is still cheaper, does not harm the environment and does not pollute anything.  It can be said that, evaluating the costs of all levels, cardboard furniture is much cheaper.  A sustainable option If you are not fond of crafts or simply do not feel like it or you do not have time to go around making your own furniture, a very sustainable option is to look for cardboard furniture already made on your own.  There are thousands of designs manufactured and sold as if it were common furniture.  This is because cardboard furniture is becoming a trend material.  For example, there are stores that allow you to choose furniture for children's rooms.  There are tables, chairs, furniture, dressers, etc.  In this way, you will not only be helping the environment by not polluting or deteriorating natural resources, but you will also be giving a good education to children from an early age in environmental and conservation matters.  There are tree-shaped shelves, nicely finished chairs, etc.  We can find furniture with more style than the common ones and at a very good price.  The positive of this is that, although they have to be changed more frequently, that helps you not have the house always decorated in the same way for pain of throwing out new furniture.  More complex furniture with modular shelving is also manufactured.  They are usually light but quite resistant and functional.  You can customize the storage space to your liking.  Many companies are already betting on recycled cardboard for some of their furniture pieces.  Although it seems that it is not useful at all, armchairs or consoles are made with a frame of recycled cardboard material.  Some fabrications are perfect to place in bedrooms, entryways or any part of the house.  These materials will give a modern and innovative touch to your home while you can be sure that they are totally sustainable.  Advantages and disadvantages of cardboard furniture The main advantages can be found in: • It is totally sustainable, so it does not pollute the environment or deteriorate natural resources.  • They are quite resistant.  • Their models can be innovative and with great design.  • You can renew the home decoration from time to time.  • You can do them yourself.  On the other hand, the disadvantages of cardboard furniture are: • They last less time, so they have to be changed more frequently.  • They do not support humid places, much less water.  • Some designs do not have the full utility that a conventional piece of furniture can have.

It has always been said that for a matter of taste there are as many as there are colors in the world.  However, many people agree on many of the opinions when we focus on something.  For example, I think the vast majority agree that the ugliest animal in the world is the drop fish.  Scientific name Psychrolutes marcidus, it is the animal that takes the top among the ugliest in the world.  In this article we are going to show you why the drop fish is the ugliest animal in the world and we will explain some of its characteristics and way of life.  Ugly among ugly Among the ugliest animals we find the drop fish.  It has been voted the ugliest animal in the world by the Society for the Preservation of Ugly Animals.  This society makes known to the world that, although certain animals look horribly ugly or unaesthetic, each one of them has its function in the world and its reason for being.  The drop fish is also known as the smudge fish.  It is one of the favorites among the competition that this society celebrates every year.  Finally, after eleven nominations, he was considered the ugliest animal in the world.  Other animals that were on the verge of winning that title were the kakopo, a parrot that does not fly and that comes from New Zealand, and the axoloti, a salamander that regenerates its broken limbs.  Among others were also the giant Titicaca frog and the proboscis monkey.  These animals are famous for having a horrible and unaesthetic appearance.  Since the drop fish has a very strange appearance and a jelly-like texture, it gives quite a bit of play as an ugly animal.  It is hoped that by naming it the ugliest animal in the world, it will be able to benefit and make the species more known around the world.  With this, it can be expected that there will be more protection for this species that is suffering the effects of climate change.  The need to make themselves known This creates a need for certain animals to make themselves known so that people begin to be aware of them.  These animals need support to avoid extinction since, although they are ugly, the ecosystem and many other species require their presence.  As we know, nature is guided by a kind of ecological balance.  This balance occurs due to the presence of certain species and their interaction with others.  If one of the species disappears, those that depend on them to survive will be affected.  This is accentuated even more when there are species whose dependence is more united or their feeding range is shorter.  For example, a polar bear needs seals to survive, since it is one of the main foods in its diet.  If it has difficulty hunting seals (as has occurred due to the thaw) or the seals disappear, the polar bear falls too.  Other more colorful species such as pandas and big cats do have their attention and investment by humans as a reason to prevent their extinction.  However, in these cases, the proportion of people who want to save species as ugly as those named above is lower.  According to the association, about 200 species are extinct every day.  The ugliest animals need more help since they do not have the same support as others.  It is hoped that with the title of ugliest animal in the world it can have a greater reception and be in the front line just as the panda bear is in the WWF logo.  Ugly animals also have the right to life and also fulfill important functions in nature.  Characteristics of the ugliest animal in the world People who have come to see this animal in person say that it looks totally disgusting.  The touch it has is gelatinous and unpleasant.  Length 30 to 38 inches so it looks bigger.  Its body needs to have low density and the gelatinous skin owes it to the fact that it is adapted to the depths where it lives.  At these depths, the pressure is very high.  Without having a more gelatinous skin that can adapt to these environments, it could not survive.  Its head is quite large and the fins are narrow.  When it falls, it looks like a drop, hence its common name.  Thanks to its thin body and its gelatinous texture, it can be blooming in the depths without having to drain its energy by swimming.  We remember that in the depths sunlight does not reach and nutrients are in short supply.  It is another completely different environment and has nothing to do with the continental shelf or the shallower waters.  In these places there are plants because light penetrates, phytoplankton and more biodiversity.  However, on the seabed, the environment and conditions are much more hostile.  It does not have a swim bladder as it happens with other fish.  This organ is necessary for other fish if they want to swim or float in the water without surfacing.  However, the drop fish does not need it.  The head stands out a lot with the rest of the body.  Food and behavior Since this animal is on the seabed, the diet must be carnivorous.  That is, it feeds on all kinds of animals that are suspended in the water.  For example, their diet consists mainly of crustaceans, mollusks, and some organisms such as sea urchins.  It does not have teeth to chew food, but it does not have any problem with it.  If you want to digest any food, you have a digestive system with a lot of potential to be able to digest the toughest foods.  Unlike other animals that inhabit the seabed, the drop fish floats quietly to wait for its prey to get ahead of it.  It is not a species that hunts or chases its prey.

There are quite a lot of recycling symbols on the products we buy.  There are many logos and understanding them all is more complicated.  In yogurt there is one, in brick there is another, water bottles another ... Each one means something and is indicative for recycling.  Among these symbols we find the green dot.  What does this point mean and how useful is it for product recycling?  In this article we are going to tell you all the characteristics of the green dot and the importance it has for recycling.  What is the green dot The first thing is to know what the green dot is and recognize it with the naked eye.  The image I suppose, for you or for anyone, is unknown.  This symbol has been around for a long time since recycling has grown in importance.  It is a circle made up of two intersecting arrows around a vertical axis.  In a lighter green color is the arrow on the left side and in a darker color the date in the right direction.  Normally, in the standard format in which most products are found, it has the trademark symbol.  The official colors are Pantone 336 C and Pantone 343 C, and it is recommended to use them when the product packaging or label is printed in four colors.  This symbol is used and can also be seen when there is a product on a white or colored background.  You have probably seen this symbol many times.  But what does it mean?  We are going to explain it to you in more detail.  What it means The function of this symbol is the simplest but it is indicative.  It means that the product with the green dot will be recycled once it becomes waste and leaves the life cycle of the products.  The company responsible for said product has an integrated waste management system (SIG) to which it pays so that they can recycle the product.  That is, when you see a plastic bottle with a green dot, it means that this product will be recycled after being used.  It is a symbol that establishes a certain guarantee and that indicates that companies are responsible for the packaging they generate.  In addition, these companies must comply with the European Directive 94/62 / CE and the national law 11/97 on Packaging and Packaging Waste.  Normally, this green dot usually appears in plastic, metal, cardboard, paper and brick containers.  They are the most common residues that carry this symbol.  The integrated waste management system that handles products bearing this symbol and their corresponding recycling in Spain is Ecoembes.  They also appear in glass containers such as bottles, etc.  In this case, the integrated waste management system is Ecovidrio.  In order for the waste to carry the green dot, it must meet certain established standards.  In this way, what is intended is that its identification is facilitated and its readability to the final consumer is easier.  The standards that the product must meet are: • It cannot be modified in any way.  • The printing must be done respecting the integrity of the product.  • The proportions must match those of the container.  • Cannot be completed with graphic elements.  • It cannot be modified without the authorization of Ecoembes.  Origin and importance of the green dot The origin of this green dot dates back to 1991.  A German non-profit company created it in that year and it was officially entered as an emblem for the European packaging and waste directive in 1994.  It came to Spain in 1997, when Ecoembes signed an agreement with Pro Europe to be able to license the exclusive use of the green dot brand in the country.  The importance of this symbol lies in the importance of the 3Rs (link).  The first is to reduce.  The family environment is the one that has to change consumption habits if you really want to achieve real results.  For example, reducing the consumption of products that we do not need is of vital importance in order to reduce the use of raw materials for manufacturing.  This helps reduce environmental impacts and pollution.  Otherwise, none of all these symbols will make sense.  The other important R is to reuse.  A product bearing the green dot can also be reused.  For example, water bottles can be refilled multiple times before being disposed of as waste.  This will help us to extend the useful life of the products before having to recycle them or leave them as waste.  Lastly, the third R is to recycle.  Recycling, even if it is the best known and mentioned, should be the least important rule.  This is because, although thanks to the recycling process we can obtain a new product from the waste as raw material, in the process we use energy, machinery and it is also contaminated.  Order of importance of the Rs For the green dot to make sense in the products, the 3Rs are a very important factor.  The most important is to reduce.  Of course, with the reduction of product consumption, large companies do not see the benefits by reducing their sales.  It is a bit contradictory in the economic model that we have today.  If we need to produce for income, we also have to recycle to have more raw materials.  The reduction is the most important R environmentally speaking.  However, it is the least convenient economically speaking.  In the case of companies that pay these integrated waste management systems, they make them commit that, once given the function they have as a product, the waste is correctly treated and recycled.  It is a guarantee that, as a company, you are not polluting with the products they are manufacturing.  In addition, you have the certainty that, with waste and its recycling, they will be able to give it a new life as new products.
