    I spend at least 30' outside every day thanks too my dog. Furthermore, when working from home I take the opportunity to go to the local shop either by bike or by foot.

    I' m using at early spring the compost I made myself instead of buying compost in shop. This means less waste during the year, no transportation of waste, less costs in my waste bin & no cost for fertilizer.

    We use reusable cloth bags when shopping fruits & vegetables what reduce drastically plastics bags.
    Any remaining plastic bags are collected in a separate bag & recycled.
