 “The smallest steps are the basis for larger creation!”

12) Encourage young people to volunteer.

13) Save energy when you boil water! 
Only boil the amount of water that is needed.
14) Don’t use a clothes dryer. 
Tumble dryers are the most energy-consuming household appliance!!
15) Buy locally. 
Transporting good all over the world produces tonnes of pollution and wasted resources. Global transport costs add 16% to food prices. In addition, it encourages agricultural mono cultures lowering biodiversity. Local companies need our support!
16) Buy refillables
Lots of products now are sold in refillable packs. Reduce land fill buy purchasing these products.
17) Leave a small pile of rotting wood in your garden. 
The rotting wood is an essential habitat for a number of invertebrates. Plus it makes a great living museum for children.
18) Don’t use free minis on hotels etc. 
The production of the mini products has a huge impact on the environment in wasted resources and energy. Plus if they are not being used they would save on lots of bags of waste going to land fill.
19) Ask your tour companies for their views and policies on the environment and local people! 
If they don’t have any why not?! www.responsibletravel.com
20) Less Speed!
Sticking to the speed limit ensures your car is running efficiently and is being fuel efficient. Smooth driving uses 30% less fuel and makes a more pleasant journey!
