Hayley Jones, Web Marketing Director at UK Energy Saving, explains further. “Saving energy and reducing our carbon footprint may seem like an onerous task but actually it is possible for everyone to make a difference, and it may not be as difficult as people believe. There are many small ways we can do this, including using energy saving light bulbs and walking rather than using the car for short journeys. And even some of the seemingly bigger tasks, such as insulating your home, are both relatively inexpensive (especially with the availability of grants) and also offer very real monetary as well as carbon savings. Equally, we can all do our bit to stamp out unsustainable and unjust business models. This might include buying Fairtrade products or ensuring your savings are in an ethical bank and of course there is an overlap with green living. This coming year we are therefore encouraging everyone to find ways to make theirs a greener, more ethical life. Each month we will post two new suggestions, one green and one ethical, on our homepage and blog, as well as invite our visitors to pass on their own tips.”
