What eco-friendly practices do you do every day and what ones do you teach to your children?

Recycle as much as we can. Compost heap for next year. Cut down on left overs and what leftovers we have is lunch for DH and I. We reuse Ziploc baggies and tin foil as much as we can. It's not much but we try.

I recycle and use household things for cleaning like baking soda vinegar, plus we use a lot of cloth things and chalkboards for home

We used to recycle - mum recycles everything - but here at the flat they just have a communal bin, no recycling bins. If I had more time I would take our stuff to the bins up at Sainsbury's or something but it's not a job I can do with Daniel around really. I might see what types of bins they have and whether it would be worth my while dropping it off on a Saturday.

We use energy saving light bulbs and try to remember to turn everything off when we're not home. We re-use a lot of things, it's easy now as school are always collecting stuff for junk modelling! Daniel also likes planting things so I might try for some more house plants next year. I'm not very good at gardening but I used to enjoy it back when I had a garden in Preston (as oppose to a little yard in Horwich and nothing here). If I have a garden again in the future I'll definitely cultivate it to have plenty of things for butterflies and bees and grow some fruit and veg organically. At the moment at least I have my herbs and my aloe vera, it's not much but it's a start.

I'll also pick up other people's litter when I'm out if I'm not rushing. Littering disgusts me.

We also recyle everything at work.


I think one of the most important thing we can do as parents is cultivate a love of nature in our children, nieces, nephews etc - teach them about the birds, animals, trees and plants and provide opportunities for them to experience nature first hand.
