Green Actions

By Sarah Boak on Sat, 11 Jun, 2016 - 18:45

What small/easy green actions can we suggest for someone just starting out thinking environmentally?

Here’s my suggestions, based on the things I’ve done recently that I’ve found very rewarding:

*switching to green electricity
*buying a bamboo toothbrush
*taking a reusable bag shopping
*taking trains/buses/cycling more often…
*buying secondhand clothes
*using public library
*using a mooncup
