There are some very simple, common sense things you can implement today without any major investment, just slightly changing the way you do things!
No, it's not about making structural changes or investing in solar panels! (Though if you have them... well done!).
WHAT YOU PROBABLY ALREADY HAVE:
80% of your light bulbs are LED
you have dual flush in your toilet
your windows are double glazed
the washing machine has an eco-setting
WHAT YOU CAN EASILY CHANGE:
call your electricity supplier and ask to be switched to 100% renewable energy
switch your toilet paper and paper towels to recycled paper
leave shampoo and shower gel that is free of microplastics (use the BTMB app to scan ingredients)
leave a basket or trolley for shopping so guests don't need plastic bags
attach a "Flow Restrictor" to your shower head (€8/$10) and save 8 gallons / 30 litres of water per shower.
hang a chart up that lists all the above features so you may influence your guests to do the same on their return home!
