10 Little Things Everyone can do to Reduce your Footprint

 

Do you ever get caught-up and overwhelmed by the big black hole of information on the web regarding the impact that we are having on the earth? We completely understand you can feel helpless and not know where to start! So…we cut through the BS and have broken down 10 little things that everyone can do in their everyday lives to reduce your environmental footprint (If it seems too much, tackle one at a time and work your way through!) -

 

1. Shop at your local grower's markets and bring your own bag! Say no to pre-packaged food wherever possible.

 

2. Bring your own coffee cup – In Australia we use one billion coffee cups a year - That’s enough coffee cups to wrap around the world twice! There are so many funky re-usable coffee cups out there…there’s no excuse not to!

 

 3. Use Eco-Friendly Cleaning & Personal Care products  – Try using our cleaning concentrates to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles. Also, wherever possible try to use our products in bulk.

4. Carry a reusable water bottle (preferably stainless steel) and refuse single-use plastic bottles.

 5. Refuse the plastic straw.  If you must use a straw, BYO stainless steel or bamboo straw.

 6. Bring your lunch to work  – try not to buy lunch out wherever possible.

10. If you see rubbish on the ground – pick it up!

 

Small acts multiplied by millions of people change the world. Let’s do this!!!
