Together with Toogethr I try to contribute to a sustainable society by facilitating the riding together of colleagues. By riding together both cO2 emission and fuel are saved. Of course a sustainable society is not only achieved by riding together alone. Another example is an economical and well-insulated home. After all, change starts with you ;). That’s why I will be giving you tips to make your home more sustainable and economical in this recurring power snack.
A shower with heat recovery works as a heat exchanger: the hot water is lead along the cold water which pre-heats the cold water. This way the heating boiler or the water heater need to do less work which results in lower gas usage.
Reducing your energy consumption and CO2-footprint can also be done by simple adjustments. Don’t place curtains or furniture in front of the central heating, opt for a water-saving shower head or place weather stripping at the bottom of your doors.
Share your sustainability tips
Together we can make a difference. Joint initiatives and a change in mindsets is what make our society more sustainable and economical. My employer and I offer this joint initiative with our Toogethr ridesharing app. By sharing these tips with you I try to contribute to a (sustainable) change in our mindsets as well.
