The kitchen is one of the areas that produces the most waste. It is probably a good area to begin to make changes in. See Food Waste and The Kitchen

Another good way to reduce the impact we have on the planet and to save some money is to try out some cleaning products using natural ingredients. White vinegar, bicarbonate of soda or castille soap form the basis of many cleaning recipes and are fairly low cost ingredients which are less harsh to the environment. See Cleaning Products
