How can you do your bit?
Our homes are the obvious place to start and by gently 'greening up' our normal housekeeping routines it doesn't have to be too scary. Simple things like not leaving the TV on stand-by, making sure food has cooled down before you put it in the fridge, checking that furniture isn't blocking out heat by being to close to the radiators, will all mean more cash in your pocket and it's good for the planet too.
