A new survey has revealed the lengths some people are willing to go for a greener lifestyle.

According to a poll carried out by renewable supplier Good Energy, some outlandish green ideas to save the environment include using a scythe instead of a lawnmower, eating less baked beans to reduce personal methane emissions and not using toilet paper.

Other people said that they saved water by never showering, cut global consumption by not having kids, booked a plot at a natural burial site and even had an eco-friendly wedding.

David Brooks, Managing Director of Good Energy said: “It’s fascinating to uncover the lesser-known ways that the British public are doing their bit for the environment.

“Driving less or switching to renewable electricity are now common knowledge but this survey shows that there are plenty of other and sometimes unusual ways, of being greener.”

The survey of 2,000 UK adults found that most people prefer more traditional energy saving methods such as saving energy at home, cycling and walking instead of driving, reducing, reusing and recycling and buying locally.
