1

Turn the tap off when you’re brushing your teeth, shaving and washing the dishes. For every minute the water is off during these activities, you could be saving up to nine liters of water.

2

Drink from a proper cup or mug instead of using disposable ones. Polystyrene cups take hundreds years to degrade and paper ones can cause deforestation.

3

Turn off lights, computers, TVs and other electronics when not in use. Even on standby mode, computers and TV’s can use up to 70 percent of the electricity they would use if on.

4

When boiling water, fill the kettle only with the water you need. Heating that extra water uses lots of extra energy and it takes longer, so why waste the time?

5

Chemicals in cleaning products can be very hazardous on the environment. Try some organic alternatives such as natural bleach and hydrogen peroxide.

6

Buy reusable grocery bags. They are top on the eco-friendly list and stylish too! (Just be sure to clean reusable bags regularly.)

7

Check the pressure on your car tires. Millions of gallons of gas are wasted because of under inflated tires. Tires not filled properly will use 10 percent more gas.

8

Buy compact fluorescent light bulbs—they last eight times as long and use a fraction of the energy.

9

Use your washing machine when you have a full a load of laundry as this helps to save energy. Also, reducing the temperature from 60 to 40 degrees could help reduce energy by 40 percent per cycle.

10

Clean the back of your fridge. Dusty coils can increase the energy consumption of your fridge by up to 30 percent.
