Helpful environmental tips at home and away
- Recycle. Recycling is highly beneficial to the environment as the amount of waste being produced is increasing everyday. By choosing to recycle you will help to reduce landfill and pollution caused by waste.
- Re-use. Save money and the environment, can you find another use for that glass jar?
- Minimise Paper Consumption. Read it on the screen instead.
- Donate items you no longer need. It may be just the thing someone else wants!
- Drive less. Cars contribute to a high percentage of the world's carbon dioxide emissions. Before getting into your car, think about walking, riding your bike or taking public transport instead. It's better for your health and the planet.
- Buy renewable energy. Don’t have the roof space for a large enough solar system to cover your needs? Buying climate friendly renewable energy power from your utility company is another way of helping the planet.
- Conserve water. Use less water when possible. Install a rainwater tank or even a grey water system that channels water from showers and baths to toilet and garden systems.
- Fly less. Take international trips sparingly and make the most of local destinations. Do business remotely via conferencing units or online conferencing applications. This will mean fewer flights, less travel time and savings of up to 10 tonnes of emissions per international trip. If you need to fly, consider offsetting your flight emissions.
- Choose a hybrid, biodiesel or fuel-efficient car. When buying your next car, make the move to a greener vehicle. It can save up to 3 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year.
- Eat lower on the food chain. Producing meat uses a lot of energy and water and often requires pesticides and other chemicals. In fact, producing meat generates about 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Eating less meat is good for you and the environment.
- Buy local. Buy food and other products that are grown and produced locally to reduce emissions from transportation and to support your local community.
- Check your tires. Inflating your car's tyres to their proper level means the car runs more efficiently, uses less energy and produces fewer harmful emissions.
