Repurpose and reuse
DIY Compost If you do one thing this year to save money at home,
and reduce your carbon footprint, switch to energy
saving light bulbs – they’re great value, they work
and they’ll cut your electricity bills straight away.
Energy saving bulbs produce the same amount of
light as traditional ones and they do it using about 80%
less electricity. In fact, if everyone in the UK replaced just one of their old bulbs with an energy saving one , the amount of carbon saved would be the same as taking 70,000 cars off the UK’s roads What B&Q doing? •B&Q's carbon commitment
