Ask for no ice when ordering soft drinks! You’ll get more pop, the drink’s already cold, and you’ll save the energy it takes to make the ice that sits at the bottom of your cup. That ice is just wasted water.
Reuse the water from the fish tank! To us, that water is gross, but to plants, that grey water is nutrient-rich! Your indoor and outdoor plants could benefit! Remember plants help improve your indoor air quality too!
Here’s an inexpensive washroom air freshener! Put 10 to 15 drops of teatree oil with water into a spray bottle and then spray the toilet and sink whenever you feel like it
