“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” – Native American Proverb

 

 

       

 

1. Stop buying your water in plastic and reduce plastic bags. You can reduce plastic bag waste by 50% just by using them twice. Get a reusable water bottle and keep it filled and with you at all times. You’ll save money and the environment!
  2. Incorporate walking or biking to some of your regular short-trip destinations. In most instances, you can walk a mile in less than 20 minutes. This is a great way to add exercise to your busy schedule.
 
3. Turn off lights and unplug devices when you’re not using them. 
Every little action adds up!

4. Keep the tires on your car properly inflated and get regular tune-ups. 
When your car’s tires are low on pressure, it has to work harder to move from point A to point B, wasting gas and increasing emissions in the process.
 
5. Eat more food that is grown or made locally and less red meat. 
Taste the difference, feel better and support the Austin economy!

6. Use the cold water cycle for washing your clothes
. And do your laundry in FULL loads. This will decrease the amount of water and energy used, helping you save time and money. Bonus points for line-drying – it takes a lot of energy to power your dryer!
7. Set your home or vehicle AC to 25°C in warm weather or heater to 20°C in cold areas like Nuwara Eliya. And turn-off the heat and AC when you’re not home. You’ll be surprised at the difference it makes in your energy bill.

8. Drive efficiently
. Use the accelerator lightly, coast to red lights, stay near the speed limit, and park and go inside instead of idling your engine in a drive-thru.

9. Keep stuff out of the landfill
. Sell items you no longer use to thrift shops, have a yard sale, or donate them to charity. Recycle or repurpose everything you can’t get rid of.
10. Use alternative transportation (bus, van, train, vehicle sharing, or bike) to get to work one day per week. Enjoy  the chance to catch up on your reading instead of testing your patience in traffic!
