Switch to LED lights. They cost less to run and last longer than any other bulb.
Filter water for all uses, not just drinking. Install a water filter instead of filling up those jugs.
To avoid creating waste, choose products with the least amount of packaging.
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.
In the garden, use coffee grounds as a mulch for acid-loving plants or around the base of plants to deter ants and slugs.
Save electricity by running your washing machine on a cooler setting and consider line-drying your clothes instead of using a dryer.
Choose drought-resistant plants for the garden to cut down on the need for watering.
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).
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.
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.
