Tip of the Day

Curtains cut bills

Now the nights are drawing in, draw your curtains to reduce heat loss through windows when it gets dark. Try curtain lining to keep rooms even more cosy - or get a second pair of curtains from a charity shop to act as lining material. If possible, avoid putting curtains in front of radiators, as this will direct the heat away from the room.

I find them really helpful. I'm part of a Green Team in an office in Jamaica, and I circulate all them to my colleagues. They particularly like the money-saving tips!"

Tip of the Day is fantastic! Since signing up I have switched my soap, registered for Freecycle and persuaded my boyfriend that if we ever get a garden we will house some ex-battery hens. It's a great, great idea, keep up the excellent work.

I read them all and think they are a great positive little 'seed' for my day.
