1. Educational activities
Engage your family in educational activities related to water and energy conservation. Watch documentaries and read books together to deepen everyone’s understanding of the impact of their actions on the planet.
2. Mindful water usage
Think carefully about water when you use it. Turn off the tap while brushing teeth, fix any leaks promptly and consider installing low-flow taps and shower heads to reduce water wastage without compromising on comfort.
3. Upgrade to energy-efficient appliances
When appliances need replacing, invest in more energy-efficient refrigerators, washing machines and dishwashers. These use less energy and water, which translates to significant savings on your utility bills. Switch to LED bulbs too.
4. Unplug and switch off
Make it a habit to unplug chargers and devices when they're not in use. Also, encourage your family to switch off lights and electronics when leaving a room – a simple step that can lead to substantial energy conservation.
5. Hang dry your laundry
Harness the power of the sun by drying your laundry outdoors whenever possible. Not only will this save energy, but it will also give your clothes that fresh, sun-kissed scent.
