Eco Tips for the Autumn
With autumn, or as I’d prefer to think of it ‘late summer’, season truly underway don’t despair, the weather may be a bit colder and the nights are drawing in but September and October are the perfect time for enjoying seasonal fruit and veg. Think hearty vegetable soups and fruit crumbles and you can’t go far wrong.
1.Seek Out Seasonal Recipes
Here’s one to get you started, this soup recipe is perfect for using up the remnants from your veg box.
2.Prepare Your Home For The Colder Weather
With rising fuel costs, now is the time to think about draught proofing and insulating your home against the colder weather. We have found a new product for those D.I.Y enthusiasts out there which helps insulate your home. Thermal paint can be applied to walls and ceilings to help reduce heat loss. Green Planet Insulation also has a wide range of insulation products.
3.Autumn Proof Your Bike
Make sure you and your bicycle are ready for the darker evenings. Bike lights and reflective clothing are a must. Last year we featured an article entitled ‘Be Safe, Be seen, Be Green’ which has some handy hints for cyclists.
