Being green can be easier than you think.

1. Remove cellphone, iPod and laptop chargers from the wall when not charging. Chargers keep drawing electricity even if the device isn’t charging.

2. There are environ­ment­ally-responsible choices instead of bottled water such as the world’s first carbon negative bottled water, Fiji Water. Recycle your empty bottles.

3. Use a compost bin to turn food waste into fertilizer for the garden.

4. Place recyclable shopping bags in car, desk and purse so there is no excuse to use plastic.

5. Repair leaky faucets. A dripping tap can waste 800 litres a month.
