Upcycling is taking something old and making it new again, whether that be finding creative ways to use gadgets and knick-knacks that are out of style, recycling trash into something useful, or refreshing tired old furniture. Try it for this month's sustainability challenge!
Long summer days and plenty of sunshine means there's no need to have lights on in the house all the time. Hopefully your home or office has plenty of windows so you can make the most of the natural light during the day. This month, try turning off the lights in your home or office from 6 am to 6 pm as much as possible. You'll save energy and money!
What's better than a long hot shower on a cold winter day? But hot showers represent one of our biggest home energy and water wasters. During February, try limiting your showers to five minutes or less, and skip a shower every now and then. It's good for your skin in the dry winter air and it's good for our planet!
