Avoid creating waste. When ordering food avoid plastic utensils or straws by asking in advance.
Where there's a choice select products with minimal or no packaging.
Use charcoal deodorisers around the home to absorb rather than mask odours and toxins.
Instead of buying paper napkins for each celebration buy cloth napkins that you can use again, or make your own.
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.
Switch to LED lights. They cost less to run and last longer than any other bulb.
Share tools and gadgets that people use infrequently rather than each of your neighbours buying their own individual items. Plan ahead and co-ordinate new purchases with your neighbours.
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.
