10 examples of sustainable development in the world
Sustainable development supposes the responsible and efficient administration of natural resources for the future. It implies the preservation of the ecological balance without neglecting material progress.
Currently, different countries and governments are advancing in the implementation of sustainable development policies at the local or global level. Therefore, here are ten examples of sustainable development that are taking place in the world.
1. Recycling of inorganic garbage
Inorganic waste can be recycled to be transformed into reusable materials, such as containers, bags, bottles, etc.
2. Biodegradable garbage
Biodegradable garbage can be recycled and processed to be used as plant compost. It is composed of different materials of organic origin. With it you can make, for example, compost, which is used in agriculture and gardening.
3. Solar power plants
Solar power plants harness sunlight to produce electrical energy. It is a type of clean and renewable energy.

4. Wind farms
Wind farms are wind turbine installations that use the force of the air to produce electrical energy. They are a clean alternative for power generation.
5. Wave energy
Wave energy is that produced from the force of the waves, whose movement produces hydraulic pressure, which is transmitted to floating buoys, to later be converted into electrical energy. It is a very efficient type of renewable energy that is currently being explored.
6. Organic farming
Organic farming is based on optimizing the use of natural resources, without using chemicals or genetically modified organisms. Its objective is the production of organic food without neglecting the protection of soils and resources, in addition, it reduces the greenhouse effect and increases fertility.
7. Use of rainwater
The collection and storage of rainwater is essential to avoid wasting such an important resource as water.
Ecotourism is an ecological concept of tourism, as its name implies. It promotes a form of tourism more oriented to experiencing the lifestyle of rural communities and enjoying nature, its flora, its fauna, its landscapes. In addition, it avoids the damage and pollution caused by traditional tourism.

9. Solar bike path
The solar bike path is an ecological transport system, designed for the circulation of bicycles. It is charged during the day with solar energy and glows at night. It is an alternative means of transportation.
10. Electric cars
The use of electric cars, especially when the energy that moves them comes from clean energy sources, such as solar or wind, is a sustainable alternative for transportation, since it does not pollute the environment or produce noise pollution.
