Reducing our impact on the environment...
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service is committed to reducing its impact on the environment. Each and every one of us has a part to play in achieving this. See the tips below on how we can all help.
A dripping hot water tap wastes energy and in one week wastes enough water to half fill a bath!
Lighting an office overnight wastes enough energy to heat enough water to make 1000 cups of tea!
A third of the food we buy in the UK gets wasted. If we re-used leftovers it would have the same impact on carbon emissions as taking one in five cars off our roads!
Energy saving light bulbs last up to 10 times longer than ordinary bulbs. Using one can save you around £40 over the lifetime of the bulb.
Smarter driving could save you up to £220 a year in petrol or diesel. In the future this could even be more due to rising fuel costs. Save some money and reduce your impact on the environment through smarter driving.
Recycling just one steel can saves enough energy to power a 60 watt light bulb for over 3 hours!
