June 5th, 2011 - 

Generic advices on how to save energy and go green:

Heating related:
– in winter time, heat only the rooms you use, not more and close the doors between halls and rooms
– don’t set the heather too high, better wear something warmer
– invest in thermostats
– use double or triple glazed windows: they will keep you much warmer and their wooden frame will last much longer than a plastic frame

Water related:
– use your washing machine and dishwsher only when they are fully loaded
reuse water in your household
– if you want to boil water, use as much water as you need, don’t waste and don’t use more than necessary
Energy related:
– use energy saving bulbs turn off lights not used
Others:
– avoid buying packagings and products that have too many layers of packaging
– buy in large containers, instead of 5 bottles of mineral water containing 1 liter it is better to buy a 5 liter bottle
– don’t use your car if short trips; if you have the possibility just walk or take the bike
