Those little fruit and veg labels that supermarkets use can be recycled too. Peel them off and stick them onto a plastic container in the recycling bin.
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.
Reduce toxins in the home – always leave outdoor shoes at the door.
Use charcoal deodorisers around the home to absorb rather than mask odours and toxins.
Take time to work out how much you need before making a purchase. If you do this for items such as food and paint you'll avoid paying for quantities that will only go to waste.
Sprinkle dry tea leaves to deodorise problem areas such as your cat litter tray.
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.
Grow houseplants for clean air and give them rainwater occasionally as it has less impurities than tapwater.
Avoid creating waste. When ordering food avoid plastic utensils or straws by asking in advance.
