The Project DO LESS Facebook page is a treasury of tips on how to live while leaving less of a harmful footprint on our environment. Each month DO LESS founders Alex Tylee and George Miller share their best tips with BayBuzz … for those who don’t hang out on Facebook regularly.

Here are the top five tips for October. Try them!

Power Cords

Ever heard of phantom power? Neither had we. It’s the energy used by appliances and electronics when they are turned off but still plugged in. Unplugging is an easy way to save energy, and 5-10% of your power bill.

Fashion

The fashion industry produces more carbon than international flights and maritime shipping combined. Rent your dress. Buy pre-loved. Buy clothes that last.

Plant Based

Car Trips

Did you know that ⅓ of all car trips in NZ are under 2km? Carpool when you can. Ride your bike. Or, just walk.

Plastic Wrap

Say NO to gladwrap. It’s one of the worst single-use plastics and we have so many other options.
