February – fuel savings, car and home

Our environmental challenge for February, small steps towards a better environment

Save weight in your car

Whatever vehicle you use it will require less energy if you are not carrying excess weight around. Remove accumulated stuff that you are transporting around for no good reason

Turn off early and save

It takes a while for your home to cool down so turn off your heating half an hour before bedtime or before going out. It will save energy and save money. 

Thanks to Cornwall Carbon Neutral Hive for these suggestions.
