We love a 2-4-1 deal at Fempire Finance so we’re all about ways which we can save money and save the planet at the same time. Here are 7 ways to do just that.
Use Reusable Water Bottles
More than 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away every single day. Every. Single. Day. Not to mention, buying water bottles is pricey too, with the average one costing £1. That’s £7 a week and £28 a month.
If you want to do your part to reduce the plastic we throw away, purchase a sustainable steel water bottle and fill it up for free as you go.
You love bacon –we get it. When you quit buying meat (or buy less), you’re making a stance against a practice that is unfit for the environment, aids your health and saves money as rice and beans (or any other vegetarian alternative) are far less expensive than meat.
On your bike (or feet)
Reducing the amount you drive and travelling by car or walking, reduces the pollution emitted to the ozone layer and cuts back on spending as there is no need to buy petrol, parking and pay road tax.
Switch off the sockets
Stand up, walk around and count all the number of sockets that have the switches turned on, but nothing plugged in. That electricity you’re paying for is flowing to nowhere, reduce your energy consumption and save the planet by switching them off.
Wear something old or borrowed
We live in a Instagram age where everyone is showcasing what is new in their wardrobe or house, but this doesn’t have to be the case - take a look at items you own before you buy new. There are so many other options including the opportunity to borrow or rent an item.
Stop Wasting Food
The amount of times we will buy something when we have a perfectly acceptable amount of food at home is appalling. 40% of food produced in the United States is never eaten. We can do our part by using and wasting less foods in our homes and at work. First step to doing this is by completing a meal plan that to allocate certain meals for the week.
