Home Improvement the Eco-friendly Way.

Explore how to do general DIY with less environmental impact (e.g. carpets vs wood floors) and the measures you can take specifically to cut harmful energy consumption (e.g. insulation, micro-generation).

What is a better use of money, double glazing or a solar panel? Should I use natural paints?  What are the best floor covering options?  Is a carpet the best way to make my floors warmer? Should I worry about chemicals in the home?  This workshop will look at these and many other questions!
