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.
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.
Replace at least part of your lawn with a meadow as a wildlife habitat, and cut down on the need for watering.
Grow houseplants for clean air and give them rainwater occasionally as it has less impurities than tapwater.
To avoid creating waste, choose products with the least amount of packaging.
Rub beeswax over pans and baking sheets rather than use butter or oil each time. Over time the pan develops a permanent coating.
Take holidays closer to home and avoid air travel if you can to reduce your carbon footprint.
