We use Bulb, a 100% green energy supplier, to provide the electricity in our home and office.
It was the easiest, simplest change we could make to lower our carbon footprint and help the planet.
Are we recommending them to you?
Yes we are!
By switching today you can be provided with renewable energy at a pricer cheaper than the big 6. Switching is easy, as Bulb will:
- Take care of everything
- Never leave you without power during the switch
- Pay any exit fees from your old supplier
It takes 2 minutes to sign up, then they do the rest.
Plus, if you use this link to switch, you get £50 and so do we. Not split between us, that’s £50 each. A nice little bonus alongside doing something to reduce climate change.
We hope you will consider taking the step to switch to renewable energy. It is important we burn less fossil fuels and focus on a world of renewable energy instead.

We start with a tour of the garden, which Charlotte and her husband Donald have been cultivating for 34 years. It is organic, full of wildlife and has the most extraordinary pruned shapes made from yew and boxwood. You can see more photos of the garden in an article in the Guardian here: Topiary Garden In Kent What Else Will …

Boxwood Lure & Nematodes – my preferred option for dealing with the caterpillar. Discount code for 10% off is EBTSBOX29GBZ …
