I try to make a conscious effort to recycle whatever I can. We have also installed solar panels on our roof - this is helping to reduce our total usage of electricity from the grid. Trees are also an important part of preserving the environment and help to slow down climate change. We have a garden full of Australian natives - this also attracts many native Australian birds which is important for the enviroment also.
It is difficult not to use air conditioning in this heat but as we have solar panels it is not too draining on the electricity grid.
It would be good to have an electric car but we cannot really afford it now. I try to use public transport when I can to save polluting the air with petrol fumes.
I try to be recyclable grocery packaging and make an effort also not to waste too much food. It is important to use food wisely.
