Do you wonder what you can do to reduce your impact on our environment? We get it, we all want to do a little bit better, to play our part to leave the environment in a better state, but where do you start? Here are our top four tips to do your part to be a little more sustainable each day:
1. Buy quality.
When you buy anything buy the best quality you can afford. Quality items last longer and can be repaired to maximise their life.
2. Repair where possible.
Again, it helps your item last longer, improving the lifetime impact of the item.
3. Buy second-hand instead of new.
Buy second-hand instead of new. Buying second-hand keeps items in use for longer, keeping them out of landfill and stopping new things being made.
Upcycling is a great way to give an item a new life and think outside the box. It isn’t just creative, it’s great for the environment, extending the life of the item.
Your actions might seem small but they can have a great impact on our environment if we all take them.
