Go green 'and save cash'
16 January 2009 — 2:21 PM
Going green is a great way to reduce spending and make for a more responsible home, according to one expert.
In news that may encourage those recycling mobile phones, a spokesman from the Energy Saving Trust (EST) said this week that there were other simple methods of generating income.
Jon McGowan, head of consumer marketing at the EST, said monitoring how energy was used in the home could reduce bills by a significant amount and that very often this was an easy thing to do.
"The simple things that people can do are things like turning the light out when they leave the room, only boiling as much water as you need in the kettle and turning down the thermostat by one degree," he said.
According to data from the EST website, the average UK home spends around £1,300 per year on power.
Of course, those looking to generate cash and act in an environmentally-responsible manner may find recycling used phones is a move that offers peace of mind.
