We’re celebrating Earth Day to remind us of our responsibility to protect the planet.

One of the best ways you can help is by making small changes in your home to protect the planet, which will also save you money on your energy bills.

Let’s take action this Earth Day.

Here are some of our top tips for making your home more sustainable:

Compost bin

Use a compost bin in your kitchen.

Washing machine

Use cooler settings on your washing machine. This can save you up to 60% on your energy bills.

Reusable bottle

Invest in reusable bottles and cups for drinking on the go.


Grow vegetables or insect friendly plants.

Water butt

Install a water butt to collect rainwater for your garden.


Light bulb

Use low energy lightbulbs. This not only saves energy but can save you £5 per lightbulb annually.


Switch off your appliances at the socket.


Only fill the kettle with the amount of water you need.


Turn the thermostat down by 1°C to save approximately £80 a year.


Turn the tap off when brushing your teeth to save more than two full buckets of water a day.
