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.
Many households across the world use tumble dryers as a quick and easy method to dry their clothes. However, these contribute to a lot of unecessary energy usage.
You can cut out this use of energy by simply hanging your washing outside or even on an airer in the spare room!
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.
