Instead of buying paper napkins for each celebration buy cloth napkins that you can use again, or make your own.
If possible replace disposable products with reusable ones (eg. food storage, coffee filters, straws, etc.).
Share the little things in life, such as newspapers, magazines, books and DVDs, between friends and neighbours.
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).
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.
Sprinkle dry tea leaves to deodorise problem areas such as your cat litter tray.
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 a recycled plastic water butt to collect rainwater for your garden.
