Tips

Clothes

I buy clothes second-hand  or in ethical and responsible fashion stores (slow fashion).

Faucet

I use tap water instead of bottled water and replace my disposable filters with activated carbon.

Radiator

I lower my heating by 1° (the ideal temperature in the living rooms is 19°C / 17°C in the bedroom).

Battery

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

Olive oil

I replace butter with olive oil for cooking.

Shutters

I install thick shutters or curtains in heated rooms and close them at night or when I leave my home.

Picnic basket

I don't use disposable dishes when I eat outdoors.

Book

I borrow my books from the library or my toys from the toy library instead of buying them.

Shower

I prefer a shower (max 5 minutes) to a bath. If I like baths, I limit myself to 1 bath a month.

Car

I adopt an economical and responsible driving style (I avoid sudden braking, sudden acceleration and I don't open my windows too often).

Errands

I run my errands on foot.

Power strip

I hunt down devices in standby, I install intelligent power strips.

Christmas tree

I make my own Christmas decorations (origami, cotton, cut-outs) rather than buy them and I choose LED Christmas lights.

Green electricity

I choose a green electricity supplier.

Dinner

I introduce one meat-free day a week.
