While the concept of driving with completely clean energy and not having to spend tons on petrol to get around might sound idyllic, the reality hasn’t really lived up to the hope.

This now means that you can realistically afford one of these future green cars, but also that you can enjoy driving them and being seen driving them. And now Tesla are looking to rectify the […]

Your roof is what will look after your home and prevent heat from escaping (bear in mind that heat rises) or rain getting in, and it is also what will decide just how much space there is to heat, where you can fit your insulation and more. The roof itself is also a vast contraption that uses materials in its construction and of course if you are constantly having to repair it then this not going to help you go green much either. So choosing your roof wisely is important, and specifically one of the most important aspects to consider is whether you want to go with a flat roof or a sloped roof. Here we will look at which is the best option for going green and how to make that decision. Of course when going green and considering your roof there is no clear cut answer – the answer is going to be affected by your circumstances including […]
