Green Living In Your Free Time...

Living a green lifestyle doesn’t mean you can’t have fun! When you have the opportunity to go out, travel, spend time with friends or celebrate Birthdays or holiday periods, just take a moment to think. Find fun activities that don’t cost the Earth.

If you are looking to have a break away, can you stay in a small sustainable business instead of a big hotel chain? If you are going to hold a party, can you hire instead of buying disposable tableware and decorations? Thinking of going out for the day, just take a moment to consider the impact of the activity before you choose where to go.
