Look at the types of products you use and switch from disposable to reusable, such as food and drink containers, razors and nappies.
Use a recycled plastic water butt to collect rainwater for your garden.
Filter water for all uses, not just drinking. Install a water filter instead of filling up those jugs.
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 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).
Take holidays closer to home and avoid air travel if you can to reduce your carbon footprint.
Avoid creating waste. When ordering food avoid plastic utensils or straws by asking in advance.
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.
