Tips

Book

I borrow my books from the library or my toys from the toy library instead of buying them.

Radiator

I place heat-reflecting panels behind my radiators.

Train

I take the train to the airport instead of being dropped off by car

Smartphone

I have my mobile phone repaired rather than discarded.

Pipe

I insulate the hot water pipes with foam tubes.

Local beer

I drink local (or even Brussels) beer.

Fridge

I set my fridge at 4° and my freezer at -18° to keep my food in optimal condition.

Gift

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

Open windows

I turn off the heating when I ventilate the rooms/rooms.

Be careful to open the windows wide for 5 minutes instead of tilt and turn window all day long!

Dinner

I introduce one meat-free day a week.

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.)

Battery

I take my used batteries and electronic products to the waste collection centre or to specialised shops.

Tent

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

Wooden horse

I prefer to buy a wooden or second-hand toy rather than a plastic one.

Doggybag

I use all my leftovers to prepare a weekly meal.
