Upon getting my payslip

Hadn’t expected my salary to go down by quite as much as it has by going part time, so it was a shock to see the figures yesterday when I got my payslip. However, having set myself the goal of living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle, what am I going to do to live within my new means?

I’ve been moaning about the amount of rain over the last few days and now I am running out of containers to put the water in. Rather than waste the water, as I was making the beds this morning, it occurred to me that it could be used to flush the toilet. The amount I have won’t in reality go very far but even two flushes is better than none – and will save some money off the water bill as well 🙂


About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
