First up, have you heard of Ecosia?

It’s a search engine that plants trees and promotes biodiversity. By using Ecosia instead of other search engines, you can make a difference whilst you browse the web. Visit

Next, let’s talk about digital communication.

Did you know that excessive emails and large attachments can have a negative impact on the environment? To reduce energy waste, try using messaging apps for short, informal messages and only attach files when necessary

Now, let’s switch things up!

The greenest energy is the energy saved. So, turn off your electronic devices when you’re not using them. These include PCs, laptops, printers and mobile phone chargers. By turning them off when they’re not in use, you’ll reduce your energy consumption and save some money on your energy bills.

Speaking of energy bills...

Have you considered switching to a renewable energy provider? Solar, wind, or hydroelectric energy can significantly reduce your household emissions and save you some cash. When it comes to buying products, look for energy-efficient appliances with high energy star ratings.

Try to use energy-saving light bulbs where possible, too

Let’s not forget about transportation!

Public transport, like trains, buses and coaches are a more sustainable option for travel than petrol cars and taxis. They carry more people and emit less carbon dioxide per mile travelled.

Now, let’s talk about your fridge.

Keeping it between 3 and 5 degrees Celsius can reduce energy usage whilst keeping your food safe. And while we’re on the topic of food, choosing locally produced and grown food can reduce the energy needed to transport it whilst supporting local businesses.

Finally, make your own compost!

Composting can reduce landfill methane emissions while creating free, energy-efficient compost that’s great for the environment and gardens.
