It's hard to open a weekend newspaper or Stumble across the web without coming across eco tips. Fit a Hippo! Compost your food! Seal your draughts! goes the advice. Even though they're relatively simple though, just seeing these tips in text can be off-putting, so -- in the spirit of a picture telling a thousand words and a video telling a gazillion words -- I've started a series of 'Smart Tip' videos over on my day-job site, SmartPlanet. They're not strictly how-to vids (you may still need instruction manuals) but they do show you how easy basic green steps are. My favourite is this one on ensuring your compost doesn't get stinky.
