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.

    Use non glittery, non foil wrapping paper. Even better, save paper you have been given and reuse it! Add a bit of nature from the garden for decoration.
