Green living

How do you change the way you live, making it cleaner and greener? The answer is simple: one small step at a time, so you can build up eco-friendly habits. Don't set your sights too high and try to do everything at once. If you aim to turn your whole life green in one go, you'll probably fail. Instead, concentrate on one small area at a time. In the kitchen, buy a small compost bin to turn your vegetable peelings into compost for tomorrow's vegetables. Or, discover the joys of meal planning – turning Sunday's roast chicken into Monday's salad, Tuesday's risotto and Wednesday's soup, dodging waste, saving money and eating well at the same time.
