If possible replace disposable products with reusable ones (eg. food storage, coffee filters, straws, etc.).
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.
Use charcoal deodorisers around the home to absorb rather than mask odours and toxins.
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.
Save and re-use the little sundries that come along with packaging, such as rubber bands, twist ties and boxes.
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.
Replace at least part of your lawn with a meadow as a wildlife habitat, and cut down on the need for watering.
Where there's a choice select products with minimal or no packaging.
