8 Eco-Friendly Waste Tips for Summer Fun

Summer is in full swing, with fun in the sunshine, visiting beaches and barbecues! Whilst we enjoy these activities, it’s important to be mindful of the extra waste it can generate. Here are 8 eco-friendly summer tips to keep in mind:

Start Composting
Don’t get rid of those garden trimmings! Turn them into nutrient-rich compost for your garden.

Summer BBQs
These are a summer staple. Remember hot ashes must not be disposed of directly into your bin. When the ash has completely cooled, wrap it in aluminium foil and pop it in your general waste. 

Picnics in the park
Ditch disposables and opt for reusable containers, and utensils and invest in a cool bag to keep food fresh and avoid extra packaging waste.

Stay Hydrated
Reusable water bottles are the best to stay cool and hydrated this summer. Save money, reduce plastic pollution, and you’ll have a useful bottle to use for any activities!

Beach Vibes
Hitting the beach this summer? Skip the single-use plastic bags for your beach essentials. Invest in a reusable stylish bag for all the essentials.

Ice Lolly Bliss
Who doesn’t love a summer ice lolly? But all those popsicle sticks are being littered. This summer, try making your own frozen treats using reusable silicone ice lolly moulds.

Sustainable Travel
Planning a summer getaway? Consider eco-friendly travel options such as public transport, car sharing with friends, or even taking a bike for shorter trips to help reduce your carbon footprint.

Seasonal Shopping Smarts
Summer sales have started. These unfortunately often lead to more packaging waste. Make sure you buy in bulk when it makes sense and choose products with minimal packaging. Every little bit counts.

Stay cool, have fun, and waste less this summer with these eco-friendly tips. By making small changes, we can all have a big impact. Share these tips with your friends and family, and let’s create a more sustainable summer together!
