The free energy monitor seems to register one half the units the actual billing meter does. Why?

I'm looking to recycle 6 or 7 mobile phone chargers and finding it very difficult. Many charities accept old mobile phones but I have yet to find anyone interested in old mobile phone chargers. I've already offered them via Freecycle a number of times. Any ideas?!

Many thanks!

In the hope that it is greener as advised by George Monbiot. I get our shopping delivered.

Found some lamps that would be very interesting if I was refitting a kitchen or utility space.

I have over time replaced all the normal light bulbs in my house with energy efficient fluorescent bulbs. But still I can't find replacements for the halogen lights in the Kitchen and Bathroom.

I have a house with a Gledhill Hot Water store which supplies a pressurised HW system, topped up by a satandard Ideal gas boiler. This system is -producing a high running cost for just two of us! Any good?

Anybody know of a way I could roughly work out what my house would score on a EPC?

There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden…

…well more like a thousand worms really. And they’re not exactly at the bottom of my garden either. But they’d probably like to be!

No - this lot are just outside my back door crammed into a big black plastic multi layered contraption known as a ‘wormery’.

I have recently attempted to buy an energy efficient washer dryer, and found the experience very confusing and time consuming.
