Calling all energy saving heroes: if you are the proud owner of Britain’s greenest home, you could be in the running for a tidy £3000 (first prize) or £1000 (second prize) – a very nice addition to the money you’ve already saved from all of your energy saving initiatives!
I’m not a Christian, but I’m using the period of Lent as a way to be even more mindful of my energy consumption, and to think of ways to reduce it further – I’m putting myself on a carbon fast.
Peter Ingledew is the inventor of the two great energy savers, the legendary Eco Kettle which stops you from wasting energy by boiling too much water, and the Showerdrop, which stops you from spending hours in the shower and wasting lots of hot water (and cutting down queues for the bathroom). We caught up with Peter to talk about why attitudes are changing towards energy saving, and what motivates him to keep going.
