Be more sustainable with water

Small steps make a big difference

Water is all around us, but it remains one of our most precious resources, and we can all do a little more to make sure we’re being as savvy as possible when it comes to our consumption.

1. Pick your cup

If you’re often headed to the kitchen to make drinks, stick to the same cup. This will save you using multiple vessels and reduce washing up at the end of the day. Keep a refillable water bottle on hand too, and top this up as you need instead of using lots of glasses or, even worse, plastic cups.

2. Load the dishwasher

Dishwashers use a lot of water and energy. It’s so important that you fill the dishwasher completely, even if this means waiting a couple of days before you run it.

About Be Kind

Hello, What makes a home? Is it where your family is? The town you grew up in? Or maybe it’s wherever you lay your hat? After years of moving around to different cities, taking different jobs and making different groups of friends, I’ve realised that home can take many forms throughout your life. My nan’s house watching Gladiators and Blind Date with my brother was home. The campervan that housed all my worldly possessions when travelling in Australia was (a very tiny) home. The London flat share with my best girlfriend in my 20s was home. The house I grew up in will always sound, smell and feel like home. And I hope I still have many homes left to discover. This month I’ve read so many stories of ‘home’ – from foster parents, the elderly, my colleagues and the communities striving to make the displaced feel safe and welcome. I’ve spoken to the people who attempt to make their towns a better place for all to live in, the ones who say ‘yes’ and go the extra mile to help other people. I’ve learned about places where neighbours are friends, not anonymous nuisances, and those who are happy and comfortable living alone. A home forms part of your identity and that’s a lot more than just bricks and mortar – it’s the people you love and the community you’re surrounded by that underpin it all. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Editor
