Better understand your recycling
Lots of packaging sadly isn’t actually recyclable in your council bins but it can be donated to charity (via recycling schemes), TerraCycle (who make a large % of containers for foodstuffs) for instance run a scheme, learn more here.
Setup consolidated deliveries to help the Environment, in short, this means you pick a day each week where all your Amazon deliveries will arrive. If you ever need anything quicker you can select this at checkout.
Finally, buy yourself a reusable coffee cup and actually use it instead of using disposable cups (you will also save money at most coffee shops).
Move your home or business energy to a renewable energy provider
A sun, wind and wave-powered home is such a simple move to make:
Get your street, town and city ready for EV adoption
Councils have access to £20,000,000 in funding for electric vehicle infrastructure in 2021/22 (for those without off-road parking), so if you, friends and family would fall under this criteria, make a request to your local council to request chargers. The money covers 75% of the capital costs of the install up to £13,000.
To be clear you will need to request this from your local council via their website/app etc
Reduce your junk mail and swap to paperless bills
Unsubscribe from at least 5 pieces of junk mail (postal): Think of 5 companies that continue to send you junk mail by post, login to their websites and change your preferences to email only / or none. You can also do the same for emails as well, as it’s easy to forget every email has a Carbon Footprint as well!
Similar to this you can do the same with paper bills, for instance: Council tax? Mortgage? Energy? Insurance? Phone bill? Internet? Childcare?
Swap from Google to Ecosia
Every web search goes towards planting trees, their servers run on 200% (yes 200%) renewable energy, and every search request removes 1kg of CO2 from the atmosphere.
