K4B tips to start living a Green life today!
STOP Using disposable and Plastic bags
Carry a reusable water bottle or drinking cup and cloth bags when you go shopping
Walk or cycle for small trips
Its good for you and the environment and there’s no fuel polluting the atmosphere
Eat Green, fresh, local produce
This helps to reduce the fuel costs of transportation and is very healthy for you!
The simplest thing you can do starting today is to turn off the lights, change your bulbs to more energy efficient LED lights, switch off plugs when not in use, turn off your air-conditioning unit when you can do without it.
Separate your garbage
You must be aware that it is difficult to recycle unless you separate the trash. Any kind of paper is usually recyclable. Aluminum cycle cans can be recycled and also some kinds of plastic. As you begin to understand recycling, you will automatically begin to separate your waste.
Saving water is so important to save our planet. We need to ensure we only use the water we absolutely need so it can be saved for our planet. Start turning off your taps today and make sure anyone doing laundry only uses the machine when there is a full load. This reduces water used.
Here are some simple GREEN projects you can try at home if you love DIY like I do!
Create a Kitchen Garden:
Watch how this is done in this video. You will find many like this on the Youtube and maybe you can devise a new way to create one too!
Recycle Plastic with these fun arts and crafts:
I loved the really colorful arts and crafts you can create in this video from plastic bottles. Really cool objects can be created this way and of course, you are reusing that plastic bottle that won’t decompose in over 500 years
