Planet Devon

Planet Devon
Save Planet Devon

Pledge your support for Planet Devon

You can do your part to help keep our county a green and pleasant one? Pledge your support as we try to save Planet Devon.

With so much information around from scientists, weather forecasters, climatologists, and so many different opinions, it's easy to be confused and to do nothing.

BBC Devon is taking the initiative and, along with you, getting something done about climate change.

We are asking you to make a pledge to change some things in the way you run your everyday life.

In making the pledge, it's not just for change in the short term, it is now and forever. Every pledge, every action, no matter how small will help limit the effects of climate change.

Here are some ideas -

  • Replace light bulbs with low energy bulbs.
  • Don't leave appliances on standby.
  • Only boil enough water for your immediate needs.
  • Insulate your loft, your hot water tank, and, where possible the cavity walls.
  • Washing at 30oC reduces power consumption by 40 per cent when compared with 'normal' temperatures.
  • Walk those short journeys rather than take the car.
  • Share a car for those regular predictable journeys.
  • Move thermostats down by 1o in the winter cuts fuel bills by 10 per cent.
