Green is the new black

Green is the new black
Low carbon home improvements have been outlined by one newspaper.

The Times has offered advice to householders who may wish to cut their carbon footprint, such as using water efficient toilets and switching to energy saving light bulbs.

According to the publication, designer and founder of fashion company Red or Dead Wayne Hemmingway said making homes greener is "the zeitgeist; green issues are the new black, they're very trendy".

One of the ways to reduce a home's environmental impact is to switch to low carbon energy providers and connect to a renewable resource, the news provider states.

In addition, a combined heat and power unit could provide heat and hot water for the home, while generating a small amount of electricity.

Combined heat and power stations, prevalent in countries like Denmark, produce power while being 95 per cent efficient, according to Greenpeace.
