Keep your kettle energy friendly
When using a kettle, only boil as much water as you need. It will save electricity and the water will boil faster.
Turn off lights when you don’t need them – it saves energy … and reduces your electricity bill!
Use energy saving bulbs
Replace light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs – they can save up to 80% on your next electricity bill and last up to eight times longer.
Recycle everything you can’t reduce or reuse.
People worldwide use 1 million tonnes of paper every day. This puts huge pressure on the environment.
Enjoy the sun
Turn your home into a clean power station by fitting solar panels on the roof of your house.
Turn it off
Do not let the water run while shaving, brushing teeth or washing vegetables. Reuse water from washing vegetables to water house plants.
Fix dripping taps
A tap dripping 45 times per minute wastes around 1 000 litres of water a month, the equivalent of 10 baths per year. Fix leaking taps and make sure they are fully turned off.
Hang it out to dry
Electric clothes dryers are energy intensive, so if possible, dry your clothes on a clothes line outside in the sun. If this is not an option, drying through spinning is 20 times less energy intensive than with heat.
