Avoid cutting back hedges and trees in your garden

Birds are nesting and garden hedges not only provide the perfect protection from predators, they also provide vital food sources.

In the UK, its an illegal offence to disturb a nesting site, so, from March through to the end of July, make sure you hold off on trimming back your garden foliage.

Use both sides of the paper

Paper is one of the largest polluters, taking 10 litres of water to produce a single sheet of A4!

Paper production is also one of the largest contributors towards deforestation. Producing just 1 kilo of paper, requires 2-3 times its weight in trees.

Dispose of cooking fat correctly

With the kids at home, now is a great time for them to learn how to cook, and clean up the mess afterward, too!

We’re all human and can be lazy when it comes to disposing of our cooking fats. According to Water UK, water and sewerage companies in the UK respond to approximately 366,000 sewer blockages every year and in some parts of the country three-quarters of these are caused by fats, oils and grease.

By simply decanting cooking fats, grease and oils into small containers, you are allowing them to cool and solidify, enabling them to be placed in to the main rubbish bins in your home.
