The Eco-friendly thread
« on: September 02, 2020, 10:27:01 AM »
  • How are you being environmentally friendly?
  • Have you made any changes to your lifestyle?
  • Do you have any tips or ideas on how to be greener?
  • Any ideas to reduce plastic wastage (easy-swaps are always a good shout)
  • Anything else that anyone wants to add?

I would recommend the following easy steps (I’ll list the first 10 that come to mind)

  • Get yourself a stainless steel water bottle that can be reused
  • Look into refillable products (eco-refill). Carex, Detol, Air Wick, L’occitane, Naissance and other brands do refill packs,
  • Bulk buy (if this won’t result in wastage)
  • Buy local produce
  • Ditch plastic teabags and go for a brand that uses paper or go for loose-leaf tea.
  • Swap out washing up liquid (plastic bottles) and sponge (non-biodegradable) for dish soap and a bamboo brush
  • Swap out shampoo and conditioner bottles for shampoo and conditioner bars
  • Swap out cling film or plastic bags for reusable sandwich bags
  • Make your own snacks at home such as hummous or crisps (hummous takes minutes and tastes much better)
  • Drink milk? Get your milk in glass bottles or a tetra-pack (e.g. UHT, Soya, Almond, Cashew, Oat).
