Things that help you reduce your Environmental Footprint

Earth Overshoot Day now 29th July (was 23rd Oct)
We were shocked to read that Earth Overshoot Day has moved forward again to the 29th of July. For those of you who haven't heard of Earth Overshoot Day (it used to be called Ecological Debt Day), it's the day that humanity has consumed more ecological resources than will be regenerated in the year. It's been moving forward each year. In 1987 overshoot day was the 23rd of October!

The good news is that each and everyone of us makes a difference. If we all do just one thing, we can make a difference. We hope you don't mind, we have only included in this newsletter the items that we sell - just so that you know that we sell these things (people sometimes just think of us an eco-paint and insulation shop you see!). We know that you are aware of a lot of other things we can all do like eat less meat, travel share, plant wild and bee friendly flowers etc.

We've split this newsletter into sections. Please forward this email to a friend if some parts are more relevant to their circumstances.

If you have a Wood Burning Stove

Wood Stove fans help reduce the amount of wood burnt


Ecofans quietly distribute the heat from your wood stove across the room rather than letting it go up the chimney or to the ceiling. The result is that you put less wood on the fire because the room heats up faster and the heat reaches the furthest corners of the room.

Ecofans are available in 5 different sizes. You simply chose the one that fits on the top of your wood stove - taking in to account that the blade needs space to swirl around. There is even one that works with lower temperature gas or pellet stoves.

No batteries and no plugs needed. Ecofans generate their own power by converting heat from your wood stove into electricity.

Comes with 2 year warranty.
Prices from £57.50

All in all if you have a wood stove this awesome device can lessen your environmental footprint by up to 18%.

Wood Moisture Meter

Moisture Meter

Every wood stove owner knows that you need a stack of dry wood. Trying to burn unseasoned wood is inefficient and results in high levels of particulates going into the atmosphere.

This moisture meter is designed for wood and a whole host of other materials including plaster and concrete. Making this a really useful tool to have in the home.

£78.00. Powers off automatically when not in use to maximise battery life.

Stove Thermometer

These are really great for working out whether you are burning wood too quickly or too slowly.

Running a wood stove too cold leads to a smoky fire and too much creosote deposited in your chimney. Too hot and you are wasting fuel - not to mention you could damage your wood stove.

At just £19.96 this is a great little device to ensure an efficient burn.

If you are Putting in an Upstairs Shower
read this section ...
ShowerSave for new upstairs showers
The ShowerSave is worth a serious consideration if you are doing any building work that includes a new upstairs shower (it needs a full height room underneath to work).

It's basically a vertical heat exchanger that takes heat from the water going down your plug to warm up the cold water going in.

An efficiency saving of +60% depending on flow rate.

It's awesome, but very niche so we'll leave it there for now. Take a look if you are interested,
