  2. Grow your own produce

  3. Make your own compost

1. Limit your use of water


There is a huge amount of misuse when it comes to water. This includes showers, taps, and baths but it can also be in your garden too. A good first step would be to limit your water use and make sure that you’re only using what you need.


Overwatering flowers can actually be damaging to them. Another good tip for limiting your water use is to check the weather forecast. If it’s a sunny day but it’s due to rain tomorrow, do you really need to water your plants? A bit of forward planning could save a lot of water.
