Following the advice of the Gavarni Hotel to be eco-citizen at work, you are now ready to act at home!
At home: it maintains a temperature below 19°C, which allows energy savings of 7%. Ideally, you should sleep in a room at 16°C and the rest of your apartment or your house should be 19°C. But for persons having some problems with numbers, invest in a thermostat that will allow you to adjust the temperature according to your presence.
Finally, remember to insulate well in order not to lose that stupid energy you consume. The best is yet to close your shutters, your curtains and double your curtains!
In the garden: stop watering your lawn. After all, we must face facts: if you live in Aix-en-Provence, no more dreaming, your lawn will never be as sweet as the green pastures of Normandy.
You wonder what is the hype summer sport? Use a hand mower!
It does not spend energy so it does not pollute.
Obviously we get the rain water for domestic purposes: watering, washing the car or the dog.
In short, being eco-citizen is not so complicated as that, you just give yourself the means.
