LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2012) - In some cases the very mention of being green conjures images of ditching our home comforts and turning to tree-hugging and wearing hessian sandals. However, making environmentally friendly decisions doesn't need to mean a life change, says sustainable energy supplier green energy uk.
The introduction of recycling everyday waste across the UK has shown that making an effort to go green doesn't have to mean a dramatic lifestyle change. Switching electricity suppliers to a more sustainable option is quick, simple and seamless.
"We are by no means asking you to ditch the car and your exotic holidays," explains green energy uk CEO Doug Stewart. "After all there is only so long we can stand the British weather. Instead, make small changes such as line drying clothes instead of using the tumble drier on the occasions we have dry days. This will not only save electricity, but will also give your washing a lovely fresh smell.
"Also think about food miles and try to buy produce that is grown in the UK, or if possible from a local farm shop. After all, we have to look after the British farmers who supply green energy uk with sustainable electricity using pig poo for anaerobic digestion!"
Small things like turning the heating off in summer months, making sure all appliances are not left on standby and considering a car share to work can all contribute to a more environmentally friendly way of living.
Doug continues: "Adopting a greener lifestyle doesn't mean being a green pioneer. If each of us made just one or two changes, it would mean a huge difference to the environment."
