  • Stop using plastic bagsRather used canvas bags that most stores offer these days. They may be a bit pricier, but they are quite useful on top of being greener.  They are also a lot sturdier than the average plastic bag.For those plastic bags still in use in the house try to reuse them as much as possible.  They come in hand as inserts for the small bathroom and bedroom bins.
  • Stop wasting waterMake a conscious effort to conserve water. Take shorter showers and install a low-flow showerhead.  This will also reduce your water bill, so it is a good investment.  Bottle water is something else to cut down on instead buy a filter for your tap.  You may also be surprised at the monthly savings the water filter brings.  Check the water consumption on your dishwasher and clothes washing machines most brands these days have good economic models.

    • Recycle

      It is well worth buying those extra bins and sorting out the trash. You can recycle glass, plastic, paper and even your compost.  Most stores and gas stations have huge recycling bins for glass and plastic.Don’t forget to look for the battery recycling bin for all those old remote control and torch batteries.  They too harm the environment and animals so please recycle them!
    • Cut down on paper

      Even though they seem to line every avenue trees are fast becoming scarce. If you need to use paper rather go for recycled paper.  Remember to recycle paper, books, etc. that you no longer require.

    Conclusion

    These are great simple starting points that go a long way to helping the environment.
