Top tips for being a little bit more eco-friendly
If you're looking for ways to become that little bit more eco-friendly, here are some tips from Friends of the Earth.
- Wash the dishes less frequently
Let dirty dishes pile up first. A fully loaded dishwasher can be more water efficient than washing by hand.
- Mow the lawn less
Leaving even part of your garden to grow wild can help pollinating insects, like bees, thrive.
- Cut down on plastic
Millions of plastic straws are thrown away each year – which can put wildlife at risk.
- Burn less fuel
Ordering a weekly food delivery can cut down on separate car journeys – reducing your climate change emissions.
- Plant trees
They produce oxygen and removing carbon dioxide and contaminants from the air.
- Support clean energy
Renewable energy sources can reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in the air.
