With one third of Britains population who believe climate change is the worlds biggest challenge, its time to start taking collective responsibility. Every household in the country is now invited to increase their interest in reducing their energy loss. As it says, there are really many ways to be more effective to slow down the planets deterioration. Just wearing your clothes at temperatures 10 degrees cooler is one of them.
The nation has recently been exposed to a series of television ads that highlight the dangers of climate change and promote the governments climate goals. The ads included visible carbon dioxide emissions and encouraging cycling over driving has also been aired. All this shows how easy it can be to help reduce the factors that cause climate change. Consumer product producer Proctor & Gamble has also taken the initiative with the detergent Ariel, by releasing a new range of tablets that cleanse specifically at temperatures below 30 degrees. Retail giants Marks & Spencer and ASDA have also begun to add 30 degrees recommendations to the labels of their clothes. By having constant reminders like these in consumer opinion, hope is that the changes start to happen.
The campaign to reduce the laundry temperature by 10 degrees has also managed to divide opinions. Many people are skeptical of whether all types of bacteria and bugs are destroyed at 30 degrees. Although 40 to 30 degrees bytes would save about 40% in energy costs, trade could be an inefficiency when it comes to removing dust pads. Various other allergens are also said to be less efficiently removed under 30 degrees wash, including pollen and dog dander. However, washing at 30 degrees should not be too much threat, and there is a solution available. By rinsing the laundry in cold water 3 or 4 times after a colder wash it will produce results that are almost equivalent to a higher temperature wash.
Modern household appliances will now tell us what efficiency assessment they are, and this is an important step in helping to cope with the climate challenge. Most washing machines will also have an economic setting, to save both water and energy used for heating laundering. It is obvious that every manufacturer has a great interest in somehow reducing the consumption of energy games and by strengthening the message from DEFRA and the government plays a major role in making everyone take responsibility and action. Household appliances are stress purchases, and almost all households will need them. Televisions will soon be produced without standby features to reduce energy loss. By eliminating opportunities to waste energy during the production phase, we can slow down climate change.
It would be far too early to predict whether climate change can be prevented, and many experts come with full confidence to say that it is an inevitable event. Washing 30 degrees clothes can not save the environment on its own and will need a lot of support from other areas, but its a positive step that can be taken by every household. The kitchen provides a series of ideas, where the average household will be able to cut down on waste energy. These are really simple ideas that only need good habits and some discipline to perform. Water kettles should be boiled with the right amount of water for intended use, microwave and toaster should be switched off on the wall socket and cookware should always be used with the lid on to minimize heat loss. As for the kitchen, each large, small and small appliance must be switched off at the power outlet, except for refrigerators and freezers. It is possible to move around each room in your home and you will find opportunities to save energy. Turning off the light when leaving a room for another is a simple example, and with the help of energy-saving lamps in combination, a sweet penny will also save. If possible, everything must be turned off in the wall socket instead of being in standby mode, and curtains should be dragged as soon as it gets dark to maintain the heat.
The government supports the idea that a reduction of 60 percent of carbon dioxide emissions is required to prevent global slowdown, but also acknowledges that Britain constitutes only 2 percent of the global issue. Savings in households must not have an impact on reducing carbon dioxide emissions, so is it worth the effort? Reducing the energy loss in the home means that there will be financial gains, which is a good incentive for most households. Collective responsibility must be taken, so this is a good way to start. Charity begins after all at home, and it can not be bad to save the planet!
