How To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint:



There are many ways to do this, some of which are just simple everyday things.


For Example:


1. Think about your heating – could you reduce it for even just an hour a day?

2. Make sure there is nothing obstructing your heaters.

3. By shutting  your curtains will in turn keep in your heat – but remember not to cover your heaters with your curtains, because this will allow your heat to go straight out of your windows.

4. Don’t set your thermostat higher that what you require.

5. Showers are faster, cheaper and more efficient that taking a bath.

6. Rather than letting the tap run and waste water & money, put the plug in.

7. Fix dripping taps  – it can be worse than you think.

8. Turn things off , not just on standby when not in use. (TV, lights etc.)

9. Keep saucepan lids on when cooking to keep in the heat.

10. Only use the water that you need, boil the kettle with the correct amount of water in rather than filling it each time.

11. Improve efficiency of fridges and freezers by defrosting regularly, keeping away from cookers & let food cool before putting it in the fridge.

12. Ensure your machine is full & use economy programmes when using washing machine.

13. Low energy electrical appliances.
