  • Reduce energy use – Turn off all electrical appliances when you are not using them.

  • Make every drop count – Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth or washing your hands and have quick showers.
  • Recycle – Make sure you put any products that can be recycled in the recycling bin.
  • Reuse – Can you reuse something again or in a different way?
  • Repair – See if any broken items can be fixed before throwing them away and buying a new one.
  • Reduce – Think, do you really need more toys or items that will one day end up as landfill?
  • Litter free lunchboxes – try to have as little plastic bags and wrappers in your lunchbox as possible. (pictures of fruit & containers that can be used again please)
  • Plant more trees – If you can, plant new trees in your garden.
