The Eco-friendly thread

  • 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)

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

this would fit really nicely in this thread - :slight_smile:
