Are Lebanese Ready to Follow Green Habits This Winter?

Winter is coming. This year's season usually causes an increase in energy use, but there are still ways to keep a home green.

Environmentalists agree that reducing energy bill will be good for your pocket and the environment. This can be achieved by by keeping the temperature around 70 degrees.


Buying local also reduces transportation costs and fuel use. Environmentalists also advise the use of cold water in washing and reduction of unneeded lights.


Las year, the winter season was really tough in Lebanon. Snow was recorded at heights above 500 meters. The country experienced surface winds of up of 100 kilometers per hour. The heavy rains caused severe damages. If some meteorologists, however, expect a hard season in Lebanon the question may linger over whether Lebanese are ready to follow green habits.


Migration to cities is increasing so much that, by 2050, the UN predicts that approximately two thirds of the world’s population will be living in cities.
