Bulb: Green Energy Supplier For Me & You

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.

Use Bulb today for your cheaper energy and £50.

Modern Mint. The Place …

A Few Notes On Climate Change

Climate change – mention it and you are guaranteed to make the discussion political. (Which probably isn’t a bad thing, as long as people are not so entrenched in their views they won’t listen to the other side…. and of course, that never happens!) We went seal watching last summer on the estuary in Essex. It was amazing, seeing these wild animals just living on the banks. The man who took the group of us out on his boat spoke about the difference he has seen on the water over the last 30 years. He believes the water level has …
