Inspired by the ABC’s recent “War on Waste” series, here are 4 measures that are designed to preserve energy for the future.
Food sharing at work: Bringing in leftovers, pooling them together to create a more interesting lunch courtesy of sharing with your colleagues is a clever concept. If you have access to a kitchen, a toastie-pie maker and a wok then many flavours are possible. image: uchino-web.com
Harness the sunlight: Tesla have released their solar roof tiles onto the US market, with the product due to be rolled out in Australia in 2018. The tiles come in all shapes and sizes and transfer the solar energy harnessed to a home-based Tesla battery.
Reduced metal mining: Apple has announced its intention to make iPhones and iPads from 100% recycled materials to ensure a zero environmental impact. As well as acknowledging they need to reduce their greenhouse emissions, the company is committed to reducing eWaste.
Staging a clothing swap: It may surprise you to know that your unloved and unwanted clothing may be coveted and cherished by friends and family. Reduce clothing to landfill by choosing more wisely by shopping second hand and vintage.
