Congratulations to Aoife Connaughton, who won our fab Roberts SolarDAB radio in our competition for Climate Week. The idea was for you to pledge to reduce your carbon in return for being entered into the competition, and we had a really great response! Your pledges together saved 1,476kg of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to:
- 3.4 barrels of oil
- 37.8 trees grown from seedling for ten years
- 3489 miles in a petrol car, which is the same as driving from one end of the UK to the other over 5 times!
Keep up your pledges for as long as you can – remember, the longer you do it, the more carbon you’re saving!
We couldn’t have organised the competition without our partners DIY Doctor and Green Reviews – you should check them out if you haven’t already. DIY Doctor is one of the UK’s best loved sources of DIY advice – you can find helpful tips on literally any DIY project you’re thinking of doing, and we’ve co-written a great section on their site on green DIY and home improvements. Green Reviews is a great one-stop-shop for reviews of green products you want to buy online. Their range is huge, covering washing machines through to reusable drinks bottles, so take a look if you’re thinking about making your next purchase a green one.
