Things like recycling are fast becoming a focus as well as trying to make sure that you as a person can live a greener lifestyle.

Create your own vegetable patch
Maybe you like the idea of living a sustainable life, and one of the best ways for you to do that would be to consider creating your own vegetable patch in your own garden. It is a great way to be more efficient as you are cutting out the middleman in terms of supplying things like potatoes and tomatoes. Creating your own patch could be started off with a few simple things, but over time you could really add to it. Helping you to become self-sufficient and in the process saving energy and being greener in terms of your lifestyle choices.
Have you got space for animals
Another thing to consider would be whether or not you have the space for animals. It can be a great way to become more self-sufficient, and often starting off with things like hens who can supply you with a constant flow of eggs is a great way to become more self-sufficient. You don’t need to stop there though, having space where you can use recycled plastic lumber to create outbuildings to house animals including cows, sheep or goats could also help you take the next step to becoming more self-sufficient and creating your very own small farm.
Collecting rainwater for the summer months
Water is one of those things that can become a little scarce in the summer months, especially if you get a long stint of good weather, the reservoirs and areas that collect the water can dry up quite quickly. However, you may still need to water plants such as your vegetable etc to survive during the summer months. Collecting rainwater during the winter can be a great way to help you conserve your water usage during the months where it is needed the most.
Making your home more energy-efficient
Finally, why not consider making your home more energy-efficient? There are many things you can do to do your bit. Firstly, installing things like solar panels can actually be a great way to energize your home with very little cost to you. Solar power can heat water as well as heat your home and supply energy, so it can be a great sustainable way of supplying energy to your home. There things to consider could be investing in new windows and doors, insulation and changing your open personal habits with how you use things on a day to day basis. Simple yet effective things.
