LEDsupermarket.com love to be part of actively helping households reduce their carbon footprints, after all, it’s when we all work together, that we can achieve the greatest results for our planet. Last week we gave you part 1 of our “Green Revolution” top tips and this week we have some more great advice.

You probably already know that you can make a big difference to your carbon footprint by reducing water usage, but it’s always great to have a reminder. The cleaning and processing of water for human use is a heavily energy dependent process. In addition, at-home cooling and heating of water is another major factor. Our top tips would be to try and collect rain water in your garden for watering plants (rain water butts are very inexpensive and easy to install). Plus it comes time to replace an existing home appliance, remember to choose the most energy efficient kettles, dishwashers and washing machines. And remember that modern energy efficient dishwashers often use less water and have a lower overall energy use than hand washing! Another simple way to reduce water usage is to try and have more showers than baths.
