Use a recycled plastic water butt to collect rainwater for your garden.
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.
If you order coffee when you're out and about carry your own mug to avoid paper waste – we all know this is an easy win, but do we all do it?
Filter water for all uses, not just drinking. Install a water filter instead of filling up those jugs.
Save electricity by running your washing machine on a cooler setting and consider line-drying your clothes instead of using a dryer.
Instead of buying paper napkins for each celebration buy cloth napkins that you can use again, or make your own.
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.
