10 Ways To Live Sustainably

Always carry a reusable water bottle/keep cup

Saving the waste of a cup every time you buy a coffee will make a huge difference. You could even save yourself some money with many places offering discounts for those who bring their own cup.

Buy fruit and vegetables loosely or in recyclable contains

Food packaging is one of the biggest generators of waste.

Leave the car at home as much as possible

Get some exercise and save yourself some money by walking or using public transport

Recycle your rubbish correctly

Educate yourself on what can and can't be recycled, and which bin it belongs in.

Choose paperless billing

Most companies now offer paperless communication. It's also easier to keep track of information in digital form.

Turn off lights when you leave a room and plug out your devices

A simple step which can also save you money in the long run.

Watch your water usage 

Time your showers, turn the tap off while brushing your teeth, only use your dish washer on a full load.

Reduce fast fashion purchases

It takes roughly 7,600 litres of water to make a pair of jeans. Buy second hand or invest in key pieces that will last a long time.

Eat less meat

Whether it's choosing to eat vegetarian/vegan, or having one meatless day a week. Every little helps.

Invest in reusable cutlery, straws and shopping bags

Avoid reaching for single use plastics as much as possible.
