Irish television presenter Baz Ashmawy and healthy living entrepreneur Roz Purcell are joining SSE Airtricity in challenging Ireland to live greener this month.
SSE Airtricity launched a 21 day challenge on Monday, 26th February to inform and empower people to make more sustainable choices in their everyday lives; choices that will ultimately make a difference for our environment and our household bills.
SSE Airtricity will reward one lucky person who takes up the challenge to win special prizes including one year’s free 100% Green electricity, tickets to the SSE Arena in Belfast and Dublin Zoo passes.
Making small changes to our daily habits, thinking about the products we use and how they’re made or reducing our consumption of resources can have a powerful impact. Whether it’s choosing locally-sourced or organic food, opting for sustainable fashion and eco-friendly beauty products, or switching to energy from renewable sources, there are many ways to build better green habits for the future.
They say it takes just 21 days to develop a habit and small steps such as ditching unnecessary appliances in your home, commuting smarter, adjusting your heating thermostat by one degree or even choosing a vegetarian option at mealtimes can help you move towards a greener lifestyle.
SSE Airtricity knows the importance of living green and how small changes can not only make a significant difference to people’s use of precious resources including energy, but also to their overall health, wealth and environmental impact.
As Ireland’s largest provider of 100% Green energy, SSE Airtricity is powering a greener Ireland, providing the clean, renewable energy we need to create a more sustainable future for our country whilst helping to safeguard our environment for generations to come.
“The SSE Airtricity Power Green Living 21 Day Challenge is something I’m really happy to be taking part in,” said Baz Ashmawy.
“When I saw some of the facts and statistics from SSE Airtricity, I was blown away by how much energy is wasted without even realising it and I couldn’t believe how significant an impact adapting just small habits can make to our environmental output as a family.
“That’s not even something we should be trying to do, it’s a necessity now. I want my kids to grow up in a clean, green country and breathe the freshest air they can. The Powering Green Living Challenge is definitely something that will help our home and environment become greener for the better. It’s a no brainer, I’m in,” added Mr Ashmawy.
“Although I’ve always recognised the importance of a greener lifestyle I’m mindful of being as sustainable as possible when it comes to how I fuel my body and getting outdoors,” said Roz Purcell.
“There are so many small things in other areas of my life that I’m definitely excited to learn more about and put into practice over the next three weeks through the 21 Day Challenge,” added Ms Purcell.
