Get help with a specific area of your carbon footprint

Lighting

Bring your costs and carbon from lighting down to size and get on your way to 10% with our low-carbon lighting tips. But this won't be the standard 'change your bulbs' nag. From dimmer switches to halogen spotlights, we'll show you how to boldly go where no energy-saving bulbs have gone before. Hold tight.

Heating and insulation

We all want a warm, comfortable home, and paying extra to heat the world outside is no-one’s idea of a good time. As luck would have it, the best ways to cut your carbon at home are also the best ways to banish the chills. February is insulation month.

Food

Spring has sprung, and it's the perfect time to get outside and try growing your own fruit and veg.

Transport and travel

Everyone's booking their summer break this month. Avoid airport misery with a climate-friendly getaway.

Stuff (shopping/procurement)

Hit the high street without hitting the climate - in May the focus is on carbon-conscious consuming.

Appliances

In June, we'll be hunting down (and ruthlessly eliminating) wasted energy around the house. The writing's on the wall for electricity-hogging appliances and gas-guzzling boilers.
