Land and nature
Even the smallest gardens can be havens for wildlife if you grow pollinator plants.
Avoid fertilisers or pesticides that harm wildlife (and people).
Be water conscious at home.
Local and sustainable food
Make the most of Australian produce and get locally grown veg delivered. If that’s not an option, try and shop seasonally in supermarkets or farmers markets (remember to take your own produce bags!).
Reduce food waste by planning meals ahead of time and only buying what you need.
Travel and transport
Why not swap to walking or cycling – you’ll save money and feel better for it.
Car-sharing is a great way to cut the carbon footprint of your commute.
Materials and products
Buy less stuff – turn to charity shops for clothes, share items like tools with your neighbours and swap books and films with your friends and family.
Avoid using things that can’t be recycled easily - invest in reusable items like a water bottle, lunch box, coffee cup, cutlery and produce bags for fruit and veg. Steer clear of overly packaged items.
