The core of the problem is that people aren’t going to change their habits just to save the environment. If you don’t want to be like the rest, we can give you a few of Clark’s advice for you to follow to get started.

1.Install underfloor heaters-Clarks says that the radiators don’t look as aesthetically pleasing or are they practical, especially in the bathroom.

2.Protect your loft using natural recycled materials as much as possible-isolation the loft helps you with the heat consequence. The cost of is from two to three hundred pounds.

3.Buy and use supplies from stores around your town- The logic behind this is that an apple was grown England is better than an apple flown in from New Zealand.

4. Buy house furniture made from materials that were recycled.

5.Use dye made from natural pigments and water.

6.When building makes sure, you assist your workers and try to demand that they use as much of material as they are able so that there is only a small amount sent to the landfill.

7.If you have cavity walls, fill them in.

8.For a long term saving, installing a solar panel is always a good idea.

9.Replace your one glazed windows with the double glazed once; they can look ugly but don’t have to, Clarke’s in London is all double glazed.

10.For a cheaper and easier repair, you shouldn’t choose metal or UPVC windows; you should go for the wooden ones.

11.Invest in your boiler; you don’t want to change them every ten or so years, the older the boiler, the more ineffective it is.

12.Change your light bulbs for the energy saving ones, go for the newer models since they don’t look as cold and ugly.

13.Throw away your blinds and get some thick curtains and put them on windows and doors, but be careful with the style you choose so that your house doesn’t come off as an 1840s novel.

14.Try to keep track of your electronic consumption if you can see the number you use you will use less.

15.Not everything in your home house has to be new, try searching for second-hand furniture beds or decorations check eBay and charity shops.

16.You can save about sixty pounds a year by just turning the heat on your thermostat and not get burnt when you turn your tap water on.

17.When you decide to buy the house one of the first things to do is to check its EPC and that way you will get informed on how much energy the house uses and carbon dioxide discharge.

18.Make sure that there is no draft or you will just waste your energy padded draught-excluders are not our first choice in the aesthetics department, but they do the job.

19.Buy an eco-kettle

20.By taking a shower, you are saving a lot of water, by taking a ten-minute shower you could save even more water if you chose to invest in a water saving showerhead.
