Limit use of packaging or disposable items
Buy fewer items that come in single-use packaging like plastic cups. Find ways to minimize use of disposable items such as bringing reusable bags when shopping or carrying your own set of utensils when dining out. You can also choose to buy in bulk instead of purchasing items in small non-reusable containers that you will have to throw out.

Conserve, collect, and reuse water
Checking faucets and pipes for leaks, using low-flow showerheads, reusing water, and collecting rainwater are just some of the things you can do to conserve water. You can use collected rainwater around the house like when cleaning or watering plants among others.

Buy less
But less clothes, shoes, bags, and other items that will only accumulate in your home. The fewer personal belongings you have, the less you will have to throw out.

Green your transport
Spend less time driving and instead use the public transport system in your area. Or you can give walking or bike commuting a try. You will not only save up on gas money but also enjoy the benefits of walking or riding a bike.

Use energy efficient light fixture
Use energy efficient light fixture as well as appliances at home. You can save more on your power bills over time.
