ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Have you ever heard the term "autoreduction"? It's kind of a big word, but it's really just a fancy way of saying that something reduces itself.

Let's imagine you have a bag of candy. You know you shouldn't eat all the candy at once because it's not good for your health, right? So you decide to auto-reduce your candy.

What does that mean? Well, it just means that you will reduce the amount of candy you eat all by yourself, without anyone else telling you to. Maybe you'll only have one piece of candy at a time, and you won't have any more until later. This way, you're stopping yourself from eating too much candy, and that's called autoreduction.

The same goes for other things, like using less water when you're brushing your teeth or turning off the lights when you leave the room. Those are all ways of auto-reducing your electricity and water usage.

So, in simpler terms, autoreduction just means being responsible and reducing something by yourself without anyone telling you to. It's a way to help take care of ourselves, our world, and those around us.
