    We found that our Xbox uses twice as much energy as our refrigerator. Showering is by far our most expensive activity though. Who wants to join me in saving the planet one stinky armpit at a time?
  • Use a bowl rather than a running tap to do your washing up. You waste less energy heating water and washing up gloves look great!
  • Use eco mode on your dishwasher and turn off the drying function if you don’t need the dishes immediately.
  • If you don't have double glazing you can buy glazing film to put on your windows from DIY shops. If you're in a pinch you can even use cling film and it will keep the house warmer.
