Top Tips for improving sustainability at home.
Reduce your food waste
We throw away 7 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes every year, much of which could have been eaten. It’s costing £12.5bn a year, not to mention it is bad for the environment too.
Ever thought about reusable cups when outdoors?
Over 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed in the world every day. Sadly these cups, which are made from virgin materials rather than recycled paper, cannot be put in your recycling bins. Take a cup with you or have your drink to stay.
Consider installing a water efficient showerhead
Save money and energy with a water-efficient showerhead which uses 40 per cent less water.
Research into upgrading your lights
Light emitting diodes (LEDs) and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) will cost you far less to run than halogen and other incandescent lights. Energy-efficient CFLs can also last up to ten times longer than traditional ones.
