This week is also Energy Saving Week, an annual event held by the Energy Saving Trust.
It's an important week for "both our pockets and the planet"!
The theme this year is waste, and the EST wants to help us to stop wasting Time, Money and Energy. Their web site is packed full of useful advice.
Next week I will be writing about one aspect of energy waste: electricity consumption, so tune in daily to find out the results as I go around the house with a kWh electricity meter and see which appliances are the most hungry!
