4) Increase insulation.
It might be worth adding loft insulation to the equivalent of 270mm of mineral wool. It can be added through holes in a wall, you’ll just need to contact a specialist company. If your home doesn’t have double glazing, it might be worth looking into an upgrade.
5) Change your commute.
Can you walk or cycle instead? If you drive, keep your car in tip-top condition. Low tyre pressure can increase fuel usage and speed up wear and tear, leading to increased rubber particle pollution.
6) Switch to an electric car.
Go green with an electric or hybrid car. The most common theme among electric car drivers was that they wanted to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions and protect the environment. Electric and hybrid vehicles use less energy and emit fewer pollutants over their lifetime.
Cars like the CR-V Hybrid, Jazz Hybrid and upcoming HR-V Hybrid might help bridge the gap if you are unsure about going all-electric. They are all self-charging meaning you only have to go to the petrol station to keep going.
Are you ready to go all-electric? The Honda e is a compact car that takes up less space on the road, weighs less, requires less energy during construction, and the manufacturing of the battery is the biggest contributor to an electric car’s lifetime emissions.
