Here are three easy ways to save resources that if you’re feeling that you would really like to make some changes about your life, these can help and you can start immediately.
If you’ve just done a quick search to see how you can green up your life a little, here are some super quick ideas to get you started:
Buy products that have less packaging
If you really want those items, get them, but return the excess return it to the shop. Reputable retailers have waste disposal contracts that should increase recycling.
For example at a supermarket, they pack up all the cardboard everything they order comes boxed in they also gather up the plastic too. Everything is bundled up together and sent off to be recycled.
Buy local food
As much as you can, buy local food. Not only will that save you all those petrol miles, it also saves the food from travelling all those miles. If it wasn’t for all those miles, the food may not need all that packaging to keep it safe on long journeys.
Turn off your tap
When you’re going to brush your teeth, first think about how much water you’ll waste if you don’t turn the tap off. Some people keep it running for the whole time they’re brushing their teeth which is crazy. All that fresh water going down the drain. Water is precious worldwide and though we may not have problems with shortages in the UK, this is not a problem only for third world countries. There are even water shortages in developed nations and California is rapidly becoming a land of droughts, so let’s save that water.
What do you think we could all do better to save the planet?
