Beat Plastic Pollution and Save on Energy Costs

Support World Environment Day 2018 and help reduce Plastic Pollution

Almost every day there are stories in the news about protecting the environment and this year the theme for World Environment Day is to ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’.

We are all being encouraged to stop using single use plastic bottles, straws, plastic bags, plastic food packaging to name a few. Did you know that one million plastic bottles are bought every minute around the world? The average UK household uses 480 plastic bottles per year, but only recycles 270 of them.

Recycling just one plastic bottle will save enough energy to power a 60W light bulb for six hours. But if you replace it with a 6W LED this will give you 60 hours, all from one plastic bottle.

As the first UK company accredited by the Carbon Trust for LED lighting and Infrared heating, contact Whytelight Solutions for a site survey to find out how much you could save in energy costs by switching to LED or Infrared.
