Suggestions for 2017 and 2018. (See long term suggestions in the table lower down)

1.Buy nothing new for a year except of course consumables such as food – it has been done!  2.Walk everywhere under one mile. 3.Use e mail instead of paper. 4.Turn the heating off except in very cold weather. 5.  Do not use any social media as it is corroding. etc.etc.
6. I want to re-check just how much I really need in savings and put any surplus into gifts to charities concerned with environment, sustainability and peace-building. I prefer to start close to the bottom of the food chain so insects and amphibians will take priority. (Rosie) 7. Then I will look at all aspects of savings, investments and banking that I still feel I need and double-check that they are environmentally positive and ethical. (Rosie) 8. I will also look at my stock of garden chemicals and safely dispose of any that are harmful or not necessary.(Rosie) 9. My suggestion for 2018 is to get a milkman! This reduces your plastic waste by about half with no trouble at all. The milk delivered will be a bit more expensive, but if you can afford to do this, consider the extra as a donation to environmental causes. (Sue) 10.
10   Buy British wool products and leather 11. Insulate yourself!  Trawl second hand shops for big fluffy jumpers and fleecy blankets  12. We can appreciate wildlife more by not having a pet but by allowing and creating habitats in the garden.
