Tips offered on gradual adoption of green living

Tips offered on gradual adoption of green living
Consumers hoping to reduce their carbon footprint should build up to an environmentally-friendly life gradually.

This is the opinion of Adam Vaughn, who penned smartplanet and greenguy. Mr Vaughn suggests starting out with the "classic eco-saving tips" such as using energy saving light bulbs, switching off electrical items that are on standby and using less water when boiling a kettle.

Once householders begin engaging in such activity, their contribution will build up to the point where they can then move onto the "medium-sized" measures, such as installing insulation.

Renewable energy and microgeneration are the "real big ticket things", according to the expert.

This includes "things like installing renewables so you are starting to generate your own heat and electricity", he said.

"And you can only get some of the grants for those renewable things if you have done the more basic things first," he advised.

According to research conducted by the Worcester Bosch Group, over half of those surveyed claimed to be reducing the temperature on their washing machines, while a quarter are using more public transport.
