If you live in an old house with radiators, forgo humidifiers and simply put pans of water on top of a couple of radiators. This also works well if you have a wood stove.
Air dry your hair instead of using a blow dryer.
Use an old fashioned pencil sharpener instead of an electric version.
And then there are the big things, like hanging your laundry up to dry.
That said, sometimes, switching back to the old way won’t work for you. For example, studies have shown that using a dishwasher ultimately uses less water than handwashing. And in Recycla’s house, laundry is hung up inside in the laundry room, but never outside because both Recycla and one of her daughters have seasonal allergies, so wearing t-shirts covered in tree pollen is not going to work for them.
You don’t have to do all of these things, but you might want to consider trying even just one.
