Saving more than money !

I read an article in a magazine recently about how to reduce your “footprint” in less than one hour, one day or  even a weekend .  Some of the tips I have heard of before however I have never taken the time to do them.  The activities which I am now determined to do include:

  • Turning down the thermostat by a touch can cut your energy bill by 10%
  • Buy a water bucket and collect rain water for the garden.
  • Fit foil behind radiators.  A roll of foil costs $3 and will insulate at least 3 radiators.  This seemingly reduces heat loss by up to 50%
  • Reduce household waste by composting and recycling.

Wish me luck !
