Switching to eco-friendly products is great, but switching to ‘off’ is even better. Leaving electrical items on standby still uses up energy, so switch off the power and help the planet recharge! And as well as making a small difference to the planet, you’ll also notice a big difference in your energy bills!

According to the ‘Powering the nation’ study completed by the Energy Saving Trust, between 9-16% of the electricity consumed in homes is used to power appliances when they are in this standby mode. On a bill of £500 this could account for as much as £80.
