Replace at least part of your lawn with a meadow as a wildlife habitat, and cut down on the need for watering.
Save paper – always refuse paper receipts.
Switch to LED lights. They cost less to run and last longer than any other bulb.
Use a recycled plastic water butt to collect rainwater for your garden.
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).
If you're looking for a hotel go to TripAdvisor and select 'GreenLeaders' from the 'More' menu option above the search box.
Where there's a choice select products with minimal or no packaging.
Reduce toxins in the home – always leave outdoor shoes at the door.
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.
Filter water for all uses, not just drinking. Install a water filter instead of filling up those jugs.
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.
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?
