Yorkshire Energy Services are keen to help householders spread their love and save energy this Valentine’s Day. As well as spoiling your home with a warming make-over, you can shower your loved one with gifts that don’t cost the earth.
Here are our top tips to help you save energy and money so you and your loved one can go green on the 14th of Feb.
Turn off to turn on
1. Smooch by candlelight
Switch off those lights, light some candles and create a romantic ambient evening.
2. Snuggle under the duvet
Turn down the thermostat and curl up to watch a romantic film with a loved one.
3. Share a bath or shower
There’s nothing like getting into hot water with someone to kick off a romantic evening. If every couple in the UK shared their showers on Valentine’s Day they could save a collective 160 million litres of water. And by using less hot water you’ll be saving energy too.
4. Make your own card
Buy recycled paper or sort through old cards to create a personal, one of a kind card. The extra effort shows you really care about your Valentine – and the environment.
5. Homemade treats
Don’t buy cakes or cookies – make them!
6. Dine in
Why not purchase locally sourced food and make an evening of it by cooking together.
