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 !
