“There is no such thing as ‘away’. When we throw anything away it must go somewhere.”

Annie Leonard, Proponent of Sustainability

Firstly… does your home practice the
5 R’s of Waste Management?

Always remember to refuse new ‘fast’ furniture or appliances, reduce your water, energy and plastic consumption, reuse and repurpose what you already have, recycle what can be recycled and put all your organic waste back into the soil.

The Small but Crucial Details

Climate change can only be tackled when we work together, but the first step is at the individual level. Here’s a list of small and easy changes you can make in your daily life that will help reduce your carbon footprint.

Are you purchasing 100% renewable energy?
Do you drive an electric car?
How do you heat your house?

Do you compost?

Do you unplug your appliances when you are not using them?
