Litter picking whilst out running

Myself and my husband decided to pick up any litter that we saw along our run in the early morning. Even down a quiet country lane we found discarded drink cans and polystyrene coffee cups.

These items are left due to laziness and can easily cause harm to the local wildlife. Please be sure to discard litter in the bin.

Crush tin cans before recycling

The Wildlife Aid Foundation see so many animals, each year, that have become trapped in litter, such as tin cans. This type of discarded litter has sharp edges and can cause nasty injuries to wildlife whilst they’re out on the hunt for food.

Be sure to crush your tins and containers before recyling them properly. You could help save your local wildlife!

Old technics = garbage?

It seems that the lifespan of electrical equipment shrank in the past few years. But not because it gets broken so fast, but rather because we tend to buy new stuff more often. I think that’s not necessary. Well, not always.

I used my old laptop for ten years before heavy-heartedly I bought a new one. My speakers that you can see in the picture are about fifteen years old and my stereo is … hm, antique? I love them for being very reliable devices with high quality standards.

Note: Please check the electricity consumption of your equipment. If they consume too much electricity a new device is more eco-friendly. And: If you decide to throw away any electrical device, make sure that you dispose it properly.

Triumph march of the screw top jar

To get a screw top jar is very easy: They just come to you. If you buy mixed pickles, fruit puree, yoghurt, pesto, smoothies or blue kraut (is this even the correct English word?), you get one free. Rinse them carefully, let them dry, storage them at a clean place (and don’t put the lid on again while they are not used). I put nearly everything in glasses: food, presents, … even my paperclips and ear plugs are stored in glasses. If you are gifted with creativity you can also turn the jars into little masterpieces like plant pots or lanterns.

Use a handkerchief instead of tissues

Did you know, the amount of tissue paper we use could go around the planet every 2 minutes, or travel to the sun and back every 10 days!

You may associate handkerchiefs with your grandparents, however, they were uknowingly doing their bit to save the planet and reduce paper consumption.
