THIS YEAR: At the Shops
Replace older laundry machines and dishwashers once they’ve come to the end of their lifespan with models that are more energy and water efficient or have an “eco-wash” setting. It may be more expensive to buy efficient appliances at first, but it can reduce utility bills for years to come.
Ask your local garden centre about water requirements for different plants and what will grow easily in the soil in your garden. Some plants and shrubs thrive in drier conditions.
