Saving Money and the Environment - 20 Useful Links!


Being eco friendly doesn't 'cost the Earth', and it’s usually in people's direct and indirect financial advantage to think eco! Here are my top 20 useful links for eco money saving!23-01-2010
Energy: Saving Money, Making Money 

www.energysavingtrust.org.uk
Atul Srivastava says “People used to say: time is money. I think that should be updated: energy is money! The Energy Savings Trust offer great support for people wanting to reduce their energy bill at home. They also have sections for grants, offers and vouchers, so you don’t have to pay the full cost of making your home more energy efficient.”  

www.energysavingsecrets.co.uk
Atul Srivastava says: “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!”

http://www.sustlife.com/br4up/ASustlife/energyproducts.htm
Atul Srivastava says: “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
Atul Srivastava says: “Think how often you use Google. Five times a day? Ten times a day? All that white background is burning electricity and costing you more money than if the background of Google was black! Use blackle.com instead to save money long term. It’s the same search engine and is owned by Google as their energy saving alternative!”


www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=products.es_at_home_tips_renters10
They say “Even if you rent an apartment, townhouse, or a home, you can make a big difference, too! These tips will show you how to be more energy efficient and save energy, money, and reduce the risks of global warming.”


www.energysavingcommunity.co.uk/exporting-electricity-grid.html
They say: “Whether you’re planning on installing a wind turbine or adding photovoltaic solar panels to your roof...get paid for generating the power.”


www.accessrenewables.co.uk/selling-energy-back-to-the-grid/
They say: “When a photovoltaic or wind turbine system is producing more energy than is required, the surplus is exported via the grid and sold back to the utility company.”


Eliminating your £40 a month Gym Membership!

www.btcv.org
Atul Srivastava says: “BTCV run Green Gyms throughout the UK, where you can get fit for free through conservation volunteering. Forget spending about £40 a month on that gym membership that you never make full use of anyway. You’ll burn up to a third more calories in an hour of Green Gym conservation than in a step aerobics class. Sessions are designed to work a variety of muscle groups. If you currently spend £40 a month on gym membership, join a Green Gym instead and save £480 a year!”


www.wildlifetrusts.org
Atul Srivastava says: “Contact your local Wildlife Trust for a conservation volunteering opportunity near you. It’ll be good exercise and eliminate the need to pay for gym membership!”


www.ramblers.org.uk
Atul Srivastava says: “The health benefits of walking are well documented. Join the Ramblers for regular walks in the countryside and you’ll get a year’s worth of walks for less than a month’s worth of gym membership!”

http://www.globalactionplan.org.uk/ecodriving-simulator
Atul Srivastava says: “Have a go on GAP’s eco driving simulator to learn how to drive with greater fuel efficiency, saving you money!”


www.whatgreencar.com
Atul Srivastava says: “This website reviews a number of green cars, with detailed comparisons to help you choose the car that will help you save money while meeting your particular transport needs. But saving money specifically on fuel is only part of the benefit of eco cars. This website explains other financial savings and incentives, such as the London Congestion Charge Alternative Fuel Discount.”


www.carfreewalks.org
Atul Srivastava says: “This website shows how you can enjoy walks in the countryside using public transport. If going for nice walks at weekends is the main reason you’re thinking of buying or keeping your car, save your money and use this website instead!”
