Saving Energy can Save Money AND Protect the Planet

Around 21% of the UK’s carbon emissions come from our homes. With the increase in energy prices that we have seen, making your home more energy efficient will lower your energy bills.

Good for the planet and your pocket!

There are 3 approaches to energy saving in the home:

  1. If you don’t have money to spend in your home, don’t despair. Making lifestyle changes that save you energy and money are a still a good bet.
  2. Reducing the amount of energy your home wastes either through leaking houses or inefficient appliances big lead to big savings.
  3. Switching to renewable energy sources can reduce your bills and help you generate green energy.

Other Laundry Saving Ideas

Heated Airers

Tumble dryers are expensive to run and use a lot of energy so try to dry clothes on racks and save £70 a year. Clothes will dry quicker in an airing cupboard, by the boiler or a radiator. Just remember to ventilate the room with extractor fan or trickle window vent so you don’t create condensation in the house.

An alternative to a tumble dryer is using heated airers. These are great to use when it’s wet outside. It takes longer to dry on an airer but the running costs (and therefore energy used) is about half that of a tumble dryer.


Our founder, Carrie, hates ironing and hasn’t used an iron for year! It saves time and electricity. After clothes have dried, Carrie rolls them up and pops them in a drawer and the creases disappear.
