1. VOTE RENEWABLE
While progressing from fossil fuels to renewables is complex, powering our homes by companies championing renewable generation, is simple. Moving us towards our clean energy future, Momentum is owned by Hydro Tasmania - Australia's largest renewable energy generator. Switch today and watch a little momentum go a long way!

2. TAKE THE PLEDGE
While sometimes, solo efforts don't seem to matter, together we can reduce the impact of climate change. Refuse plastic, ride a bike, shop second-hand! Take the TAKE2 pledge and join the global effort making our actions count for our planet.

3. CHOOSE FUME-FREE
The New Joneses love how their all-electric BMW i3 makes the petrol-pump a thing of the past. Using natural interior materials (like hemp, sustainably-sourced eucalypt, kenaf and recycled PET), while creating emission-free vehicles in their entirely wind-powered Leipzig factory, BMW is our world's most sustainable car company.

4. BANK BETTER
One of our biggest environmental and social impacts is our choice of bank. The New Joneses' love Bank Australia's commitment to never lending to the fossil fuel industry and actively supporting environmental projects such as the Bank Australia Conservation Reserve. We can change the world by changing our bank.

5. LIVE LITTLE, LOVE BIG
Downsizing our homes frees us to rethink what we need for contented, happy lives. Clearing the clutter of consumer lifestyles and excess stuff, 'little-living' makes space for what really matters - great experiences with our friends, family and community. Tiny house, big life, light footprint!

7. CUT THE CHEMICALS
Keep chemicals from our skin, air, waterways & food supply with natural cleaning products. Choose grey-water-safe, plant-based products, like Earth Choice and Organic Care, who use recycled and recyclable packaging.

8. SHOP FAIR
Every bite of Fairtrade chocolate helps end child labour. Every cup of Fairtrade tea supports equal rights for female tea farmers. Every sip of Fairtrade coffee means fair pay to farmers. Fairtrade doesn't just taste good, it does good!

9. THINK BIG IN SMALL SPACES
In a world of finite resources but infinite possibilities, space-saving design is key to compact, comfy living. As #littleliving trends upwards, praise the space-creating Wall Bed designers, doubling the use of any room. Long part of life in Europe & USA, Wall Beds bring freedom and flexibility to Aussie homes, turning spare walls into spare rooms!

10. LOVE FOOD, HATE WASTE, DIG COMPOST!
Throwing edible food to landfill creates methane & wastes the resources used to grow, process, package & transport it.

Shop to a list, buy only what's needed. Eat the leftovers, feed them to the chooks, or worms.

Get composting & send vital nutrients back to the soil, using today's food 'waste' to grow tomorrow's lunch!
