We believe that Egypt is the best place to to live an eco-friendly lifestyle. Here is why:
Sorting and recycling your waste does not take much effort. Zabbaleen will do it for you for a nominal fee. All you have to do is separate organic and inorganic waste.
Due to the warm climate, you need less clothes. You do not buy very heavy winter clothes and shoes. Do you remember about smart consumption?
Having sun all year round, you can use solar batteries to generate energy. The installation is a bit pricey, however it will pay off quickly.
In winter the outdoor temperature during day time is usually higher than indoors. So instead of turning on your heaters, spend some time on your balcony or your rooftop to warm up in the sun and get some fresh air.
You can buy a lot of loose products sold by weight, this way you will reduce the amount of packaging and plastic bags
Using stainless steel bottles or mugs is also applicable in Egypt. Most of the schools, hospitals, offices have water coolers where you can fill up your own bottle with water instead of buying another plastic bottle of water.
There are also plenty of inexpensive natural body care products here, such as loofah shower sponge and shabba deodorant made of white crystal
Extremely heavy Cairo's traffic encourages you to leave your car at home and switch to the metro that will take you to your destination faster. If you live in a compound, you can also ride a bicycle. To get around Cairo or other cities in Egypt, you can use carpooling. Check out these Facebook groups to find a company for your trips: Car Pooling Egypt, Cairo CarPooling and Carpooling Egypt.
