What is the eco approach to life?

Such a question may be more of a provocation than the possibility of receiving an unambiguous answer. In general, everything that is ecological should be associated positively, although in some places wind farms arouse controversy, even protests of residents. Similarly with some sowing energy plants for biofuels. It seems, however, that one of the most important and controversial trends is sound management of waste and things that have ceased to be usable and which we intend to get rid of.

We do not have to throw them in the trash

In Western Europe, it is common practice to display used furniture in front of the house or to put it in a collection area, so that someone can use it. In the nineties, a large part of the Poles supplied (mostly from Germany) benches with ceramic countertops, sofas and armchairs. At that time, it was quite attractive for the Polish buyer - currently, some of the stores previously importing such furniture turned into an antiquity not necessarily functional, such as archaic electronic equipment.

                Analog discs and traditional needle adapters have begun to be popular. Some want to have an old TV with a cathode ray tube, some with an old eight-camera or a projector or a diaskop to display cartoons with motionless films. These things begin to have a collector's value, in addition, they are eagerly bought as an element of home scenography, for example in agritourism farms.

Appreciate the environmental aspect and improve the flow of information

Despite this, we get rid of a lot of usable things that we just get bored and often throw them in the trash. Well, if the municipality introduced waste segregation, then the electronic equipment will be recycled. However, this is not always the case. In addition, what some people throw away may be useful to someone else. Therefore, it is better (and this is also a good example of an eco attitude) if we give the opportunity to someone else have a specific thing for free - for us unnecessary, but a second person useful.

And here it is a good idea to allow the network (and base) to receive information on the items that we want to get rid of. And here the GIVA application will be helpful. Thanks to it, the interested parties have an insight into specific items intended for a possible free takeover of ownership.
