5% or 300kg of a households average carbon dioxide emissions are a result of gadgets like set top boxes, mobile phone chargers being left on standby. Why not turn them off? In the UK, an average family would save over £37 per year: enough for a slap up pizza dinner!
Increasingly manufacturers are designing these devices with eco friendly functions, and leaving out unnecessary environmentally unfriendly functions such as the dreaded standby.
More than 6 million electrical items are binned every year in the UK, and it is estimated that over half could be repaired. Obviously, a reconditioned appliance requires less energy to bring it back into use, than to rebuild from scratch. Dixon’s Group shops, PC world and Currys Digital will all accept old returned products when customers buy new ones.
