Top 3 Eco Money Saving Links

www.energysavingsecrets.co.uk
This website takes it a stage further than simply reducing your energy bill in the home. It shows how you can generate your own power using micro wind turbines and solar panels!

www.sustlife.com/br4up/ASustlife/energyproducts.htm
This is one of many websites in the ‘eco-gadget’ category. These save you money by reducing the need to buy batteries or even the need to charge up the gadgets at home.

www.blackle.com
Think how often you use Google. Five times a day? Ten times a day? The white background burns more electricity and costs you more money than if it was black! Use blackle.com instead to save money long term. It’s the same search engine, owned by Google as their energy saving alternative!
