Save the Earth Program

The following were suggested ten tips on what we can do to help the planet:

  1. Walk, cycle or use public transport – and leave your car at home.

  2. Avoid plastic bags and take reusable ones shopping. Every person in Australia uses an average of 300 plastic bags per year.

  3. Turn off lights and appliances when you don’t need them. Switching appliances off at the power point when not in use can save an average household $100 a year.

  4. Plant a tree or a native bush in your area. Each tree planted provides oxygen for 2 people for the rest of their lives.

  5. Put your food scraps and plant scraps in a worm farm or the compost.

  6. Take four minute power showers.

  7. Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth. Leaving the tap running wastes up to 9 litres of water a minute or 26,000 litres of water per family per year.

  8. Buy the most energy and water efficient appliances you can afford.

  9. Choose products with the least amount of packaging, or packaging made from recycled materials.

  10. Switch to Green Power by calling your electricity retailer. *
