Errands

I run my errands on foot.

I choose a fridge and a washing machine A+++

Train

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

Shower

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

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

I insulate the hot water pipes with foam tubes.

Tomato

I prefer local and seasonal fruits and vegetables rather than imported ones..

I hang my laundry instead of using the dryer.

Book

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

Olive oil

I replace butter with olive oil for cooking.

I maintain my car and check my tire pressure regularly.

I wash at 30° (or even cold when it suits) and in the Eco cycle. I prefer ecological washing and rinsing products (Marseille soap and white vinegar for example)

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

I hunt down devices in standby, I install intelligent power strips.

Gift

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