Global Cool – A Step to Save Earth

Use and lose less energy by doing any or many of these easy things.

1. Turn your heating down
Turn your heating down

Not by much – just by one degree. You save a bundle of energy and if you do feel slightly colder (unlikely) you can always wear an achingly fashionable jumper.

2. Take a stand against standby

The green button – a shocking name because a TV left on standby still burns vast quantities of energy. Why not burn a few calories by getting up off your chair and turning it off properly?

3. Unplug that charger

Unplug that charger

Most gadget chargers eat electricity even when not in use. So once you’ve powered up your PSP, iPod or mobile, be sure to power down its greedy little charger.

4. Don’t boil over

Don't boil overKettles love guzzling energy as much as you love drinking tea or coffee. So if you need a cup, boil a cup’s worth and no more.

5. Try not to fly

Stay groundedHey hotshot, do you really need to fly to that meeting? Do you really need to holiday abroad? And those relatives across the world – if they really loved you, wouldn’t they move closer?

6. Turn out the bright lights

(Don't) see the lightIf you don’t need them on then switch them off, they waste so much energy. And if you’re scared of the dark, trust us, there really are no ghosts.

7. Use better energy

Use better energySwitch to a supplier that generates electricity through wind, water and solar power. It only takes a phone call and it still comes through your wall sockets.

An average family can save 1.7 tonnes of CO2 a year

8. Take a low-power shower

Take a low-power showerShowers use nearly half the water of baths and cost a whole lot less to heat. If you really must take a bath, save energy and share it with a really dirty friend.

An average family can save 290kg of CO2 a year and a lot of money

9. Buy better bulbs

Buy better bulbsLow energy bulbs give out the same amount of light but run on a third of the power. So unless you live in a nightclub, change over.

10. Stuff the freezer

Stuff the freezerFreezers work best when they are tightly packed – that way, they don’t have to work so hard to freeze air space. A great way to justify some extra tubs of ice cream.

11. Don’t drive

Don't driveWalk, go by horse, run, rollerskate, take a coach, bus or train. Or at the very worst, hitch a lift. Do not in any circumstances drive an obscene gas guzzler on your own on a weekday or a weekend.

I speak C02
An average family could save masses of CO2 a year

12. Wrap up your home

Warm up your homeInsulate your loft space, cavity walls, hot water pipes or boiler. Draught-proof your doors, windows, letterbox or cat flap. Keep your home a little warmer and your planet a little cooler.

An average family could save 3.8 tonnes of CO2 a year and a lot of money

13. Lower your laundry

Lower your laundry

Wash your clothes at a lower temperature, say 30 degrees rather than 40 or 60. It uses way less energy and your clothes still come out sparkling white unless they were black to start with.

I speak C02
An average family can save 90kg of CO2 a year

14. Buy local food

Buy local food

Veg from a mile away is just as tasty as veg from half the world away and doesn’t have to be flown to you in energy-guzzling airplanes.

An average family can save 4 tonnes of CO2 a year
