Whether you're a devo-tea of a builder's brew, coffee or hot chocolate, it's time to put your mettle to the kettle. We are a nation of tea addicts, there's no denying it. We glug down about 165 million cups of tea a day, and 70 million cups of coffee, yet 2/3 of us boil far more water than we need.
Only boil what you need – any extra and you’re wasting time, money, and valuable energy.
A watched kettle never boils… especially an overfilled one. Why wait around for water you don't need to boil when you could be sitting supping a beautiful beverage?
Always boiled the kettle with the right amount of water a practice I have passed down to my kids
I now don't waste any water or extra electricity and it always is the little things that make a difference!
This is a good one - simple and easy to implement, not one I'd ever thought of.
This one went brilliantly. I pour water into my mug then into my kettle. I only boil what I use. :) Now I need to get better at using less water when I do my dishes. I use a basin, but I wonder what strategy I could still use to use less water... THANK YOU!
It was so easy to do, and it has made me think about water & energy use much more.
Rather than just filling kettle without thinking, it made me aware of how much I really needed.
Took a little while to break the habit of always having a full kettle but now conscientiously check beforehand to make sure I am only boiling enough water that is required.
