Did you realise that on average it costs £59 a year to run a tumble dryer? I didn’t, but itf you take a look at the Tesco Greener Living Quiz you will find out little nuggets of information like this and more.
There is also a cool interactive house, which you can use to try and find ways of living a greener lifestyle whilst also saving money at the same time. You can save approximately £400 a year just by turning your heating thermostat down by one degree.
So I thought it would be a great idea to put together a list of ecological things that we can use to lower our expenditure, whilst still trying to be greener.
My Top Tips:
Wash at 30 degrees and spot clean clothes
Turn down the thermostat on your hot water by 1 degree, then you need less cold water and the hot water needs less heating
Use a draft excluder at your front door
Shut your curtains as it gets dark, they do help keep the cold out and the heat in.
Have a throw on the sofa, that way you can turn the heating off an hour early and snuggle under it with your partner or even the dog!
