Eco-my-flat is a simple, guided, programme to help you green up your flat with easy, low-cost living tips. In the past Eco My Flat has been run as a very successful competition. More recently, eco-my-flatters told us that the competition aspect was not as important as building a sense of community with other interested students.

If you are setting up a flat or want to fine tune your existing home, here is the Eco My Flat guide with lots of tips and tricks for making your home sustainable.

Why is Eco-My-Flat important?

We all need to learn how to reduce the impact of our lives on the earth. Changing day-to-day behaviours and habits (no matter how small) and sticking to them for a lifetime can make a real difference over the years. Eco-living can also often cost a lot less, and requires creative, innovative approaches to everyday household issues. Tertiary students are an ideal group to lead that creativity, while saving a few bucks for their back pockets as well.
