Tips

Pot with lid

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

Dinner

I introduce one meat-free day a week.

Faucet

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

Defrost

I regularly defrost my freezer (every 6 months).

Car-sharing

I opt for a car-sharing system.

Shower

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

Shutters

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

Radiator

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

Local beer

I drink local (or even Brussels) beer.

Errands

I run my errands on foot.

Olive oil

I replace butter with olive oil for cooking.

Green electricity

I choose a green electricity supplier.

Fries

I make my own fries and prepare my own homemade mayonnaise.

Plug

I install timer sockets for my electrical appliances.

Gift

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