I think we can all struggle in life to become more eco-friendly in our homes and lives, either we aren't too sure where to start, or we need a bit of a push in the right direction.
Sadly some don't care what we are doing to our environment. It's time to take a look at what we are doing to our ourselves and our Environment!
Some quick facts from ABC "War on Waste", Australia is one of the most wasteful countries in the developed world. 1 billion coffee cups are used in Australia each year, and these don't get recycled! To break it down further, 50,000 cups are used every half an hour... and that's a lot of cups! According to Frank Green reusable travel cups, if you use their cups twice a day, you can save 600 single use cups from landfill each year! You can buy a good reusable cup for as cheap as $10, and a lot of coffee places are providing incentives for people that bring their own coffee cups to be filled, so in the end you could be saving yourself $$$, and the environment!
Let's talk food wastage, food waste produced each year is 3.3 million tonnes, and that figure is only getting bigger with every year. When food rots in landfill it gives off methane, and this is 25 times more potent than the C02 produced by cars! According to ABC War on Waste, if 1% of the population composted food scraps instead of throwing them in the bin, it would save 45 million kgs of C02. So get composting people! And there are plenty of options of composting bins out there, so really, there's no excuse.
