To travel on a city trip, I prefer the train if possible. If I fly, I compensate my flights.
I opt for local tourism on a small scale, with locals or camping.
I install thermostatic valves on my radiators and set them to max. 3.
I wrap my gifts in beautiful fabrics instead of paper packaging.
I avoid air conditioning as much as possible (if I am too hot I hang a damp sheet on my window to cool the room. If that's not enough, then I prefer the fan.)
I insulate the hot water pipes with foam tubes.
I replace butter with olive oil for cooking.
I use a lid to cook food and choose a pan size that fits the cooking plate.
I take my used batteries and electronic products to the waste collection centre or to specialised shops.
I drink local (or even Brussels) beer.
I take the train to the airport instead of being dropped off by car
I install timer sockets for my electrical appliances.
I regularly defrost my freezer (every 6 months).
I run my errands on foot.
I start composting organic waste. Several options are available to me: neighbourhood compost, throw my compost or vermicompost (terrace), use orange bags.
