Editorial Feature

It’s easy being green. From splashing out on time-saving taps to fixing your draughts for less than the price of a meal-deal, these are the best products to buy to help save on energy in your home. 

1. The Radiator Centre

Livingstone Radiators

The Radiator Centre’s range of Livingstone radiators tick all the boxes when it comes to being green.

Made from marble dust, which is usually a waste product from the marble cutting process, these radiators use less energy and at the end of their life can be crushed and recycled.

And you don’t have to sacrifice style for sustainability – the beautiful modern designs fit seamlessly into any home and can even be linked to your phone, putting the power quite literally in your hands.

Just a couple licks of these lime-based paints reduces air pollution. Fifteen litres of Graphenstone on the walls absorbs approximately five kilos of carbon dioxide, the equivalent to planting a tree in your home.
