Green Tips

– Keeping water hot takes up a major share of your electricity bill. Switch the geyser off during the day to save electricity.

– Buy a geyser blanket to help keep the water hot and use less electricity.

– Grow indigenous plants in your garden. They’re tougher and usually require less water than alien varieties.

Reuse greywater for gardening. Attach your outlet pipe of the washing machine so that waste water is directed to a irrigation system for the garden.

– Install LED bulbs where you can. The price has come down and it saves electricity.

– Drive an at a constant speed to save fuel, and it help to time traffic lights so that you save on having to accelerate away from a stop.

– Switch off appliances not in use as DVD players, TVs and music systems consume small amounts of power even when in standby mode.

– If you have space, grow tomatoes or herbs in your garden. It saves some cash and doesn’t require loads of effort.

– Go solar power with swimming pool pumps, but if you live in Cape Town or Durban, go to the beach – it’s free.

– Share rides on your way to work. You’ll save fuel and the company may make the commute more fun.
