Take holidays closer to home and avoid air travel if you can to reduce your carbon footprint.
Share tools and gadgets that people use infrequently rather than each of your neighbours buying their own individual items. Plan ahead and co-ordinate new purchases with your neighbours.
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.
Sprinkle dry tea leaves to deodorise problem areas such as your cat litter tray.
Look at the types of products you use and switch from disposable to reusable, such as food and drink containers, razors and nappies.
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.
Switch to LED lights. They cost less to run and last longer than any other bulb.
