Replace at least part of your lawn with a meadow as a wildlife habitat, and cut down on the need for watering.

Sprinkle dry tea leaves to deodorise problem areas such as your cat litter tray.
Save electricity by running your washing machine on a cooler setting and consider line-drying your clothes instead of using a dryer.
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.

Where there's a choice select products with minimal or no packaging.
