Rainwater / stormwater collection
That we flush our toilets with drinking water is a big waste. There are flexible systems for recovering rainwater for flushing of washing machines and toilet water. This would also make it easier for the sewage treatment plants, etc. It should therefore be encouraged more, perhaps with some form of grant or tax relief. For new construction this today is not even intended in the planning. Water shortage is becoming more apparent every year and is expected to increase in step with global warming. Above all, this should be applied for sprinkler systems for public lawns etc so that primarily rainwater and not drinking water are used.
Take advantage of the tasks
The city's roof as the element before suggested should be better used. Partly for Sedum roofs and bee cups that have been proposed, but also for solar panels. Should the law be better used. There is also a roof office that binds NOX particles and other dirt and has a cleaning effect, which also contributes to more vegetation on the roof. The carbon dioxide binding is admittedly limited, but with greater knowledge and focus on the area, one can easily adapt which roofs that may be invested in solar cells, which are to have hotels and which ones should have vegetation and, in particular, which vegetation. This also includes urban cultivation, which the ceilings can also be used for. That so many surfaces are just empty is a big waste. There are also many other advantages that come with these proposals that more oases are created for biodiversity, stormwater collection, some insulating effect in the winter and cooling in the summer etc..
