Buy Local

Grow your own fruit or vegetables. By not buying them from the supermarket, you’re helping stop shipping them from other countries which wastes fuel and pollutes the atmosphere. Alternatively, get a vegtable box or buy local from your farmer’s market.
If you water your plants every day using a sprinkler, one tip is to put a frisbee toy, rim up, on the lawn and when it has filled with water, shut off the sprinkler.
Try planting shade trees in your garden as they produce lots of oxygen, provide shelter for animals and prevent storm water run off. Start using a compost bin, it cuts the amount of waste we produce if we compost it ourselves and it’s cheap, easy and contrary to popular belief shouldn’t smell if it’s done right.
