Eco-friendly home to inspire families
Making changes to a home with a view to boosting its eco-friendly credentials can be a daunting task for property owners, so one couple has opened their front door to inspire families to copy their efforts.
Tony and Stella Richardson have improved their dwelling in Wisbech by introducing rainwater harvesting and photovoltaic panel technology, EDP 24 reports.
"Making yourself independent for energy and water is not as difficult or as expensive as you may be led to believe," Mr Richardson explained, adding that reducing fuel bills has been "a lot of fun".
Anyone interested in seeing the developments first-hand can take a guided tour around the property on April 1st, 2nd or 3rd by booking a place with the couple.
