At Home

At home, our biggest footprint at home is carbon emissions from the use of energy. Consider doing to following to use less of it:

  • Turn appliances off when not in use and don’t leave them on stand-by
  • Turn off lights when not needed
  • Buy energy efficient appliances and light bulbs
  • Air dry clothes
  • Avoid pre-heating oven, unless a precise temperature is required
  • Adjust thermostat, put on a jumper before turning the heating up and plug air leaks
  • Avoid using an air conditioner in summer by shutting blinds on south-facing windows to keep rooms cool
