I think it’s fair to say that as collective users of our planet, we all have a part to play in ensuring that we leave a world where our children and grand children are able to enjoy life as much as we have.
Today, we’ve created a list and an infographic to show you some simple changes that can be made everyday to reduce your usage and help become a little greener.
Don't flush it away
You can save 7-9 litres of water per flush if you use a dual flush system.
Invest in house plants
Not only do house plants reduce the CO2 in your house, they can improve your stress levels.
Use the ECO Settings
If you use a dishwasher, remember to fill it up and use the ECO setting to reduce the number of washes and save energy.
Washing machines have ECO settings too! Full loads and air dry your clothes outside.
Mow the garden
When it comes to gardening, use a cylinder mower. It doesnt run on electric or petrol, just your breakfast.
Go a step further and put your grass cuttings to better use – get a composter. Vegetable peelings, fruit, tea bags break down fast and you can also add cardboard egg boxes, scrunched up paper and fallen leaves.
Switch your energy provider
There are plenty of energy suppliers who specialise in greener alternatives. Ranging from solar farms to hydroelectric power, switching to a concious supplier means you’re doing your part and reducing your carbon footprint.
Use the great British weather to your advantage and use collected rainwater to tend to your garden.
Wear your clothes out
Look to donate your clothes instead of binning them, there are plenty of clothes banks and charity shops that would be happy to give your clothes a new lease of life.
