Future Friendly Mums

I haven't told many people this yet, but I was recently voted one of the EDF everyday green heroes! I think I was nominated for my pragmatic approach to eco-friendliness... I'm prepared to give everything a go to see if I can make a difference but I'm careful not to be Green for Green's sake. To me, if you can make just a few small changes to your lifestyle, that is a great step forward. If something is green and it doesn;t fit with your way of living, then carry on and find something else you can do for the world.

I recently found out about this set of videos of real mums and their small steps towards a greener future. These are all little things that each of us can do to make a small difference. Lots of small differences add up to make bigger differences.

This is my favourite of the videos - its about saving water in the home - something I think I'm pretty damn good at given that I have just received my first non-metered water bill in my new house (I've been on a meter in my old house for 5 years). The new bill for the year nearly made me sick it was so huuuuuge. Water metering is definitely the way to go if you want to take control of your water usage.

This following video is about small steps you can take to reduce your own waste in the home.

Have a think and see if there are any small 'future friendly' steps you can take.
