Use dried tea leaves as a deodoriser. Scatter them over the carpet, leave for ten minutes then vacuum up. Place in the fridge to absorb odours (like baking soda).
Switch to LED lights. They cost less to run and last longer than any other bulb.
Look at the types of products you use and switch from disposable to reusable, such as food and drink containers, razors and nappies.
Save electricity by running your washing machine on a cooler setting and consider line-drying your clothes instead of using a dryer.
Share the little things in life, such as newspapers, magazines, books and DVDs, between friends and neighbours.
Check your local library to find out all the resources it provides. Libraries are a good place to read magazines and newspapers as well as borrowing books (and DVDs).
Save and re-use the little sundries that come along with packaging, such as rubber bands, twist ties and boxes.
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.
Sprinkle dry tea leaves to deodorise problem areas such as your cat litter tray.
Replace at least part of your lawn with a meadow as a wildlife habitat, and cut down on the need for watering.
Grow houseplants for clean air and give them rainwater occasionally as it has less impurities than tapwater.
Take holidays closer to home and avoid air travel if you can to reduce your carbon footprint.
If possible replace disposable products with reusable ones (eg. food storage, coffee filters, straws, etc.).
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.
Use beeswax candles instead of ordinary paraffin candles. They burn cleaner, brighter and last longer. They also emit negative ions which improve air quality.
To avoid creating waste, choose products with the least amount of packaging.
If you order coffee when you're out and about carry your own mug to avoid paper waste – we all know this is an easy win, but do we all do it?
