Sustainable Merton’s Energy Saving Handbook
The team at local environmental charity Sustainable Merton has recently published their Energy Saving Handbook. Founded in 2007, Sustainable Merton aims to make Merton a healthier, happier, and more sustainable place to live and work.
Our Energy Saving Handbook contains useful information for everyone, including tips for saving money on your water bill and electricals and advice when making larger purchases like solar panels and heat pumps. It is a creative, fun, and free resource with an emphasis on improving health and wellbeing, connecting with the community, saving money, and being kind to the planet. It is also Merton focused so contains lots of references to local businesses and organizations.Rachael Edwards from Sustainable Merton
