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.
Filter water for all uses, not just drinking. Install a water filter instead of filling up those jugs.
Look at the types of products you use and switch from disposable to reusable, such as food and drink containers, razors and nappies.
Grow houseplants for clean air and give them rainwater occasionally as it has less impurities than tapwater.
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).
Save and re-use the little sundries that come along with packaging, such as rubber bands, twist ties and boxes.
In the garden, use coffee grounds as a mulch for acid-loving plants or around the base of plants to deter ants and slugs.
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.
