Grow your own herbs, veggies, or flowers

Do you have some empty pots lying idle in your apartment? You can use them to grow plants indoors or on the balcony.


Compost Your Food Waste

If you have access to a backyard or a balcony garden and are willing to do some work, composting will help you big time.


Use Reusable Bags and Bottles

Reusable bags and bottles are an easy way to cut down on plastic waste.


Buy Durable Items

Buy quality items that will last longer and won’t need to be replaced as often.


Ditch the Paper Towels

Paper towels and plastic bags take up a lot of space in landfills and they can be harmful to the environment.


Recycle Correctly and Conscientiously

Things like metal, paper, and electronics can have a second life if recycled right.


Go Paperless With Your Bills

Paperless billing is an excellent way to save paper and reduce your carbon footprint.


Drink Tap Water Instead of Bottled Water

Tap water is safe to drink, and you can use it for everyday tasks like washing dishes or brushing your teeth.
