Going green can be quite overwhelming. I’ve chosen 3 practical green tips that are quite easy to pull off, so you have no excuse!
- Don’t fill up the kettle if you want to make only one cup of tea. Boil just enough to cover your immediate need.
- Replace one meal a week by a light vegetarian meal or fruit/salad. Giving up meat altogether is not for everyone, but skipping a meaty meal is very possible. Not only will you save more of the earth’s resources but this will also give you a good idea of your own overconsumption – we are capable of functioning on much less food.
- Fruit is seasonal and we need to respect that. Besides the fact that you are being overcharged for fruit that is out of season, it has a huge impact on the environment due to the shipping that is involved.
Not too much to ask, is it?
