You can ... Starting in the kitchen - get a "recycle bin" in the kitchen and read the Greenwich Council leaflet telling you what you can put in it. This bin will then be emptied into your big blue lid bin.
You can ... Load up your blue lid bin with as much as possible. The more you recycle, the less Greenwich Council need to incinerate or dump in a landfill.
You can ...
Maintaining your car (oil filter, tyre pressure) can reduce pollution and save you money. Filling up with petrol at night can reduce O3 because air pollution is less lightly at night - weird! Try to avoid using your car on your own.
Simple changes will improve air quality, reduce the number of people with breathing problems and asthma, and reduce the cost of running the NHS!
You can ... Put your old jars and bottles into the blue lid bin. They wont get washed and reused - they'll get crushed into dust and become part of a road somewhere!
You can ... Reduce the demand on power stations by using less electricity. Watch less TV!! Use Energy saving light bulbs. Unplug unused phone chargers and other adaptors. Relocate the fridge away from the oven! (Believe it or not, a full fridge will use less energy then an empty one! So as it empties, fill it with old newspapers!!)
You can ... Set yourself or your household a monthly or annual target to reduce the amount of packaging that goes into your bins.
