There are so many ways to be more green, including many things that you may already be doing, such as recycling.

There is always more that can be done though, and none of these things have to be difficult or expensive.

Here are 7 incredibly easy ways to be more green that will help to save our beautiful planet (and some may save you a few pennies too).

1. Upgrade Your Insulation

Everyoneโ€™s house will be wasting energy to varying degrees, and upgrading your existing insulation if you can is one of the best ways to be more green.2

While this will involve an initial outlay, it will save you money in the long term.

Furthermore, depending on whereabouts you live, you may be able to access a scheme that will help you with the cost of insulating your home.

2. Eat Vegetarian Once a Week

If you generally eat meat every day, one easy change you can make is to have a meat-free day every week.3

Making this change for a family of four can have as much impact as driving a hybrid car.

This is because raising livestock releases lots of greenhouses gases.

If we all ate a little less meat, weโ€™d have a healthier planet.

3. By Sustainably-raised Meat

As well as eating less meat, choose sustainable or organic meat to avoid all of the hormones and antibiotics often given to livestock.2

This is good for your body, public health and the health of the planet.

4. Avoid Bug Sprays and Pesticides

This is one of the ways to be more green thatโ€™s good for the planet and your familyโ€™s health.

If you get a lot of bugs in the kitchen, try preventative measures such as cleaning up crumbs, sealing holes, and using natural repellents.

5. Choose Fragrance-free Products

Ultimately, fragranced products such as soaps, cosmetics and cleaning products all get washed down the drain where they join the ecosystem.

No man-made chemical will be good for nature, and some are believed to disrupt natural hormones in mammals.
