Tips

Compostage

I start composting organic waste. Several options are available to me: neighbourhood compost, throw my compost or vermicompost (terrace), use orange bags.

Clothes

I buy clothes second-hand  or in ethical and responsible fashion stores (slow fashion).

Pot with lid

I use a lid to cook food and choose a pan size that fits the cooking plate.

Airconditioning

I avoid air conditioning as much as possible (if I am too hot I hang a damp sheet on my window to cool the room. If that's not enough, then I prefer the fan.)

Shower

I prefer a shower (max 5 minutes) to a bath. If I like baths, I limit myself to 1 bath a month.

Tent

I opt for local tourism on a small scale, with locals or camping.

Chicken

I replace one portion of red meat with one portion of white meat per week.

Rechargeable batteries

I use rechargeable batteries.

Shutters

I install thick shutters or curtains in heated rooms and close them at night or when I leave my home.

Wheel

I maintain my car and check my tire pressure regularly.

Microwave

I avoid using the microwave to thaw food.

Gift

I wrap my gifts in beautiful fabrics instead of paper packaging.

Radiator

I place heat-reflecting panels behind my radiators.

Fries

I make my own fries and prepare my own homemade mayonnaise.

Train

To travel on a city trip, I prefer the train if possible. If I fly, I compensate my flights.
