Tips

Train

To travel on a city trip, I prefer the train if possible. If I fly, I compensate my flights.

Tent

I opt for local tourism on a small scale, with locals or camping.

Thermostatic valves

I install thermostatic valves on my radiators and set them to max. 3.

Gift

I wrap my gifts in beautiful fabrics instead of paper packaging.

Airconditioning

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.)

Pipe

I insulate the hot water pipes with foam tubes.

Olive oil

I replace butter with olive oil for cooking.

Pot with lid

I use a lid to cook food and choose a pan size that fits the cooking plate.

Battery

I take my used batteries and electronic products to the waste collection centre or to specialised shops.

Local beer

I drink local (or even Brussels) beer.

Train

I take the train to the airport instead of being dropped off by car

Plug

I install timer sockets for my electrical appliances.

Defrost

I regularly defrost my freezer (every 6 months).

Errands

I run my errands on foot.

Compostage

I start composting organic waste. Several options are available to me: neighbourhood compost, throw my compost or vermicompost (terrace), use orange bags.
