Green Tips.


Starting your green journey and taking the first step can sometimes be very confusing and scary. Where do you start?

Remember - take small steps. Choose 3-5 things and get the hang of it first. As soon as you feel you can do more, choose another few things to add to your journey.

And the good news is - to 'go green' does not mean it's expensive! There are loads of things you can do that does not cost a thing!  E.g.

1. REDUCE: Try and use less. Save water, save our natural resources. 

Switch off the lights when you leave a room. Electricity is one of the biggest CO2 creators of all. Also start by switching to energy efficient lighting. Recycle your old bulbs responsibly.

Save water! E.g don't leave the tap open while shaving or brushing your teeth. Shower and keep it short, instead of filling a whole bathtub with water. Fix all leaking taps. WATER IS OUR MOST VALUABLE RESOURCE.


Reuse things like newspapers, containers like milk bottles, yogurt tubs, glass bottles, plastic or paper bags, etc. Trash ends up at our landfill which poisons our soil, animals and water.

Rather fix something instead of just buying a new one. E.g clothing, accessories, appliances, furniture etc.

We live in a world that got use to consuming excessively and we forget that our environment struggles to keep head above water with our bad habits.


After you have tried to REDUCE and REUSE, Start recycling. Try it. You wont believe how much less you put out your trash on Tuesday mornings. It's scary! Paper, plastic, metals, glass and e-waste. For your nearest drop-off site go to these sites:
