After the indulgence of Christmas, we all want to start the year feeling refreshed. Why not try a Carbon Detox? Your carbon footprint will feel lighter, and the planet will thank you for it too.
10 step Carbon Detox
Kick some unnecessary carbon out of your life by taking a few (or all!) of the steps below.
We’ve also enlisted a few of our favourite carbon-detoxing partners to help you. Oh, and don’t forget to share your #carbondetox with @OVOenergy to encourage others to get involved too!
For every 34 halogen bulbs switched to LEDs, 183kg of carbon emissions are saved (plus you’ll save money on electricity too).
Forget standby. Leaving that little red light on your appliances is creating a lot of carbon. If everyone in the UK pulled the plug, it would prevent 5.15 million tonnes of carbon emissions every year.
If we all turned our smart thermostats down by just 1 degree, we’d collectively prevent over 8 million tonnes of carbon emissions a year. Smart meters have a similar energy-saving, carbon-kicking impact. Got yours yet?
If we all sent one less email a day, we’d save over 16,000 tonnes of carbon a year (and de-clutter our inboxes). To help remind you, we’ve created a handy extension for your chrome web browser.
