participate_100Here you can post personal and practical advice which you would like to share with other expatriates living here in Belgium. Anything useful you encounter in your quest to reduce the impact of your lifestyle on the environment can be posted here. You may also want to browse our articles, small steps and eco-challenges if you wish to comment on those.

Here are our first contributions:

Hilde

"I asked my cleaning lady, Linda, to test some environmentally friendly cleaning products and we were both happy with the result. We gradually changed all products in the house. Now she even succeeded to promote the same products towards THREE other of her employers. She works at five different homes and her aim is to convince the last two ones to do the same. Imagine, if everyone would do like her!".

Martine

"Every time we get the annual bill for gas, electricity or water, I gather the whole family and we ask everyone including the children how we could save some money. It is amazing what the children come up with! They really have some great ideas and in this way they feel involved and responsible!".
