Sprinkle dry tea leaves to deodorise problem areas such as your cat litter tray.
Use a recycled plastic water butt to collect rainwater for your garden.
Instead of buying paper napkins for each celebration buy cloth napkins that you can use again, or make your own.
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.
Avoid creating waste. When ordering food avoid plastic utensils or straws by asking in advance.
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.
Grow houseplants for clean air and give them rainwater occasionally as it has less impurities than tapwater.
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.
Use beeswax candles instead of ordinary paraffin candles. They burn cleaner, brighter and last longer. They also emit negative ions which improve air quality.
