For my new years resolution of 2019, I wanted to adopt some eco-friendly habits, such as timed showers, buying organic foods and making a compost for my plants.

Anyone else have any general advice as to how I can take it further?

If you live in the city, you get outright get rid of you car. That's what I did. And when I had a car, it was a small used town car that didn't emit that much gas into the atmosphere anyway.

I always unplug what's not being used. Energy is wasted big time by DVD players which are pretending to be off.

My Front-loader washing machine is water efficient. They use less water than the top-loader machines out there. I then skip the drier and hang clothes on the line.
I swear clothes driers are the worst for power consumption.

I avoid buying products that are excessively wrapped in plastic.

This disgusts me

I miss having free bags when I go shopping. I know it decreases landfill, as they are made of plastic, but they could've just gave out free paper bags.

Instead, they give out plastic bags as long as you pay for them, which is frustrating.

Insulation in housing is one of my favourite eco friendly options. Its cost affective if you have air conditioning.

A general mindfulness for the environment. Reusable shopping bags, line drying laundry, turning lights and chargers off in unoccupied rooms and donating items to charity where possible.
