Reduce your impact - second steps
If you do the next 2 steps, your emissions will probably drop by about 6.5%. If you've already completed the first two steps, this will bring your emissions down by 13.5% - 30.5% in total.
1. Wash Your Laundry at 30°C
If you wash your laundry at 30°C, you should reduce your emissions by about 0.5% and save you money on your electricity bills.
2. Top Your Loft Insulation Up to 27cm or 10.5 inches
This should reduce your emissions by about 6.3% AND save you a lot of money on your heating bills. It will take you several hours to do (if you choose to do it yourself) if you include the time taken to purchase the extra insulation. It will keep your home warmer during winter and you will make your money back within the first year. Every year after that, you'll be in profit!
If you live in a block of flats, don't worry. Flats are usually much more energy efficient than houses anyway and there are plenty of other things you can do to reduce your emissions.
