No Impact Man-stepping lightly on the planet top ten tips

                                                                                               


 

1.
Skills share. Get to know your neighbours and get to know their skills. Swap
the skills you have with neighbours. Teach others the skills you have, eg. Woodworking,
metal working, electrical, mechanical, cooking, computer, sewing and gardening.

2. Food. Grow as much of your own food as you
can. Swap with neighbours excess produce. Join a community garden if you don’t
have enough space to grow your own food. Find ideas here:
