Save about $100 a year on your energy bill and about 100kg in carbon emissions by switching off your computer at the end of the day.
And, if you're replacing your computer, remember that laptops and notebooks use less energy than a desktop PC.
Ditch bottled water and drink tap water instead. It takes three litres of water to produce one litre of bottled water.
Pack yourself a healthy, homemade - and maybe even home-grown - lunch in a container you wash and re-use. You can save up to $10 a day.
Buy foods like grains and nuts in bulk and use recycled glass jars to store them in the pantry.Feed dogs bones, not canned food. It's cheaper, healthier and eliminates tin cans and paper labels. Buy a $2 bag at the butcher and store it in the freezer for a handy supply.
