Whilst my focus in #ecosparkles2018 is to try to do more little things to help our environment, I hope that I have always tried to be considerate of our planet. I recycle as much as I can, rubbish, clothes and household goods and try to think of the environment in my actions. However there is always more that we can do, so this project is of new, little extra things that I’m doing this year to improve our environment.
- Whilst I normally recycle our Christmas cards, this week I responded to a Twitter request to send the picture half of the card to a women’s prison so they can do Christmas crafts next year. The cards will be used for a new purpose and the discarded part has been recycled.
- I ordered eco cleaning materials to replace the usual products. I will develop my collection as the remaining products are used up.
- At work, I have avoided using the disposable plastic cups at the side of our water cooler and brought a glass to the machine each time. Sometimes it has meant a walk back to my office to collect a glass but I reckon I have saved 2 or 3 plastic cups every work day so far.
