“Reduce your energy consumption – some simple tips

  1. Turn off lights, TVs, computers, when not in use
  2. Turn down the heating when it’s cold. Blankets and socks are good for you and better for the planet
  3. Burn renewable fuel (wood not coal)
  4. Walk or ride your bike and carpool if travelling greater distances
  5. Slow down when you are driving and keep tyres inflated to the right pressure. Turn off your engine if stopped for long periods
  6. Eat less meat, especially red meat. Cattle produce large amounts of methane (Phew!)
  7. Buy local and try growing your own food
  8. Use a washing line rather than a tumble dryer
  9. Insulate your home
  10. Choose renewable energy and/or get some solar panels
  11. Plant greenery on roofs, driveways, patios and windowsills
  12. Take a ‘staycation’ and avoid short-haul weekend city-breaks abroad
  13. Carbon offset your flights whether for business or for pleasure
  14. Recycle. Reusing rather than manufacturing from new materials saves energy”
