#2: Go for package-free, fresh fruit
Grab some fresh fruit for breakfast this morning. Not only is it healthy, but it helps the environment by cutting down on the packaging.
#3: Carpool to School.
Carpool with other parents for the drive to school. You’ll free up some time and save some gas.
#4: Turn off the tap.
Make sure you (and your kids) turn off the water when brushing your teeth.
#5: Repurpose coffee grinds.
Repurpose coffee grinds. You can use them to touch up wood scratches, create natural fertilizer and scrub grease off pans.
#6: Unplug appliaces.
Don’t just switch your blow dryer or toasters off. Unplug appliances to avoid vampire energy!
#7: Buy bulk to reduce packaging.
Have a favorite breakfast cereal that your family eats a lot? Buy it in bulk. You’ll save packaging and money.
