Reduce Your Impact



Even the simplest everyday activities can make a real difference to the environment. Take action now for our living planet.
Save energy
  • Turn off equipment like televisions and stereos when you're not using them. That little red standby light means they're still using power - and that means a contribution to global warming.
  • Choose energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs
  • Let clothes dry naturally rather than using a tumble drier.
Save water
  • turn off the tap when brushing your teeth.
  • collect the water used to wash vegetables and salad to water your houseplants.
  • Fix dripping taps - they can waste up to 13 litres of water a day.
  • Take a shower instead of a bath.
Save wood and paper
  • Always use both sides of a sheet of paper.
  • Re-use envelopes.
Reduce, Reuse and recycle
  • Help reduce the world's rubbish dumps - don't use "throw-away" products like paper plates and napkins, and plastic knives, forks, and cups.
  • Use rechargeable batteries
  • Use a solar-powered calculator instead of one with a battery.
  • Store food and other products in ceramic containers rather than alumunium/plastic foil and plastic wrap.
