Good habits of the Soviet Union
• Useful habits of the Soviet Union
It has been almost 30 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Every year, it becomes apparent that more and more people coming to nothing "dope bourgeois freedom" podkormlenny instant noodles. People start to think again about his past, the past of their country and are increasingly coming to the conclusion that not all three decades ago was wrong. Let's talk about the things that would do well to remember the modern society and re-adopt.
1. Donating glass
Visit receiving points glassware (bottles) was an absolute norm for most people in the Soviet Union. Just think, today only a lazy public organization is not running, waving his arms shouting that foremen take for the environment. Namely - to use recycled materials to good use. But in the Soviet Union did so, especially with glass bottles.
2. Donating trash
Another good tradition of Soviet citizens can be regarded as delivery of waste paper. Particularly distinguished themselves could get for that special coupons, which can then be exchanged for any interesting book. Old notebooks, newspapers, cardboard and other "waste" in the center of recycling rather than landfill.
3. string bag instead of packets
It would be nice to remember that plastic bags are also harmful to the environment. In the Soviet Union was "allowed" to go to the store with a shopping bag. The main advantage of this bag - it reusable. In addition, the string bag is easy to fold and never take up much space in your pocket.
4. Paper packaging
Today virtually every product is packed in polyethylene hated for nature. But in the Soviet Union, many important products for a long time to pack in much more environmentally friendly paper packaging.
5. The ride by public transport
The majority of people in the Soviet cities drove to work and back home on public transport. It would be good to return and this tradition, especially in large cities. However, nowadays it is a dream, at least because of the collapse of the USSR communication infrastructure in towns finally got confused because of ill-conceived development.
6. Repairing wardrobe
In the USSR, go and buy an extra set of clothes was not so easy. That is why the majority of citizens preferred to seek help for repair. Note: This approach may seem strange today, but in reality it was the highest expression of moderation and responsible attitude to their same things.
7. All rental
There are people who (inexplicably) the opportunity to admire in the West gain a huge amount of loans to meet all (or almost all) of their needs. But in the Soviet Union, people prefer to do otherwise - to take things for hire. In fact, a good habit that can protect from unnecessary impulse buys.
