Reduce my energy use

We can all save energy and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. From using a solar powered mobile phone charger to going on an eco-friendly holiday, we’ve got plenty of tips to get you started.

There are lots of different ways to use less energy at home or when you’re out and about. You could have a go at making your own draught excluder or a pair of thermal curtains. Or join us for a green day out and support renewable energy projects at the places we care for.  

Reducing our energy use does not only reduce carbon emissions that contribute to climate change, it also cleans up the air we breathe and helps to protect wildlife. 

Whether you take big or small steps, you can make a difference. Just do what you can.
