How to Save Money While Saving the Planet

Low-flow Shower Heads

A good quality low-flow shower head costs as little as $8 and can reduce water consumption by up to 50%. Better still, by restricting the volume of the water, you also minimize the energy required to heat it, saving you money on both bills simultaneously. Water remains a climate priority across the world, and this is one of the easiest, cheapest ways to do your part.

Washing Clothes on Cold 

When we think of the latest technology, it’s not often that household appliances come to mind. But in fact, in recent years, both washing machines and washing detergents have been improved and developed with cold water cycles in mind, and will now clean your clothes effectively at 30°C. Because up to 90% of the energy used by your washing machine goes into heating the water, the cold cycle means hot savings for you.
