Use beeswax candles instead of ordinary paraffin candles. They burn cleaner, brighter and last longer. They also emit negative ions which improve air quality.
If possible replace disposable products with reusable ones (eg. food storage, coffee filters, straws, etc.).
In the garden, use coffee grounds as a mulch for acid-loving plants or around the base of plants to deter ants and slugs.
Choose drought-resistant plants for the garden to cut down on the need for watering.
Rub beeswax over pans and baking sheets rather than use butter or oil each time. Over time the pan develops a permanent coating.
Choose rechargeable batteries and a battery charger to cut down on disposables. Eventually recyclable batteries reach the end of their life too but they can be recycled – local recycling policies vary so check with your recycling facility.
Share tools and gadgets that people use infrequently rather than each of your neighbours buying their own individual items. Plan ahead and co-ordinate new purchases with your neighbours.
If you're looking for a hotel go to TripAdvisor and select 'GreenLeaders' from the 'More' menu option above the search box.
Save electricity by running your washing machine on a cooler setting and consider line-drying your clothes instead of using a dryer.
If you only need a tool or piece of equipment infrequently then instead of buying one, save resources by asking a friend or neighbour if you can borrow one. Or check online for a lending club, such as Streetbank.
Save and re-use the little sundries that come along with packaging, such as rubber bands, twist ties and boxes.
Reduce toxins in the home – always leave outdoor shoes at the door.
Replace at least part of your lawn with a meadow as a wildlife habitat, and cut down on the need for watering.
