Easy Ways to Save the Planet:
Wrap gifts in fabric and tie with ribbon; both are reusable and prettier than paper and sticky-tape. Start a compost heap to reduce the waste you send to landfill sites. Slow down. Driving at 50mph uses 25% less fuel than 70mph.
Don't waste water on half-empty loads.
Turn down your central heating and put on a jumper. Take a brisk shower, not a leisurely bath, to save water.
Airtight food containers can be reused; sandwich bags and plastic wrap cannot. Choose energy-efficient appliances when you replace old ones.
