An alternative advent calendar
Most if not all of these are obvious, but sometimes we need reminding:
- Turn off lights that you don't need.
- Use LED lamps instead of main lights as they are focused and can take less energy.
- Cosy up with some throws and switch the thermostat down.
- Stick on an extra jumper instead of using the heating.
- Run your washing machine on full. Whilst most machines are more water efficient, running them still uses electricity so try to cut use of it.
- Unplug unused electronics. Standby and cables still use energy so unplug what isn't used.
- I air dry washing, but if you have a dryer, put a dry towel in with your damp washing as it reduces the overall drying time!
