Replace at least part of your lawn with a meadow as a wildlife habitat, and cut down on the need for watering.
Avoid creating waste. When ordering food avoid plastic utensils or straws by asking in advance.
Instead of buying paper napkins for each celebration buy cloth napkins that you can use again, or make your own.
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).
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.
Switch to LED lights. They cost less to run and last longer than any other bulb.
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.
Filter water for all uses, not just drinking. Install a water filter instead of filling up those jugs.

Reduce toxins in the home – always leave outdoor shoes at the door.
Grow houseplants for clean air and give them rainwater occasionally as it has less impurities than tapwater.
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?
Save electricity by running your washing machine on a cooler setting and consider line-drying your clothes instead of using a dryer.
Use a recycled plastic water butt to collect rainwater for your garden.
