Happy New Year to you all. Now is the time of year to make some new year's resolutions-perhaps to save money or energy at home. Take a look at our range of Energy Monitors to help you do this. Speak to Nigel if you would like some advice on which one to buy and how they all work. He really is an expert and is always ready to help. Phone 01284702840
From bird cake feeders, to wind up dinosaurs we have the eco gifts for your friends and family that they will really love! You can truly feel good about the thought you have put into their gifts and their contribution, however small to helping to save the environment and their money. Many of our gadgets are pure fun for children and adults alike. Some gifts are more practical-who doesn't love a showertimer?! Take a look at our selection of gifts on Christmas Eco Gifts.
Can't feel the heat from your radiator? We have the solution-the Radiator Booster Turbo Logic (this month's Special Value). Chilly weather seems to have come upon us and we are sure that we are not the only ones reluctantly putting our heating on.The Radiator Booster Turbo Logic uses a small fan to draw up heat from behind a radiator, It then gently distributes the warm air around the room more efficiently than using convection alone. This leads to the room warming faster, saving lost energy, and reducing heating bills.
We know hot air rises, which means rooms warm up from the ceiling down. A Radiator Booster moves hot air from your radiators into the room quicker than it would do on its own and helps move the warm air down. This in turn means rooms warm up faster, and room thermostats switch off sooner.The Radiator Booster works with a built in thermostat and could save an average household between £70 and £140 per year.
Now is the time to get ready for putting on your heating again sometimes. Simple and easy gadgets like the EcoSavers Radiator Bleed Key and the Aladdin Chrome Automatic Air Vent make good purchases and will have you ready for chillier days.
Whether you are attending a festival this summer or camping out there is no doubt that solar power comes to the rescue to help you continue to use your gadgets. Take a look at our Solar Power Category in the shop. One of our favourite new products in the office here is the Powerplus Stork. This is a high quality portable solar and USB powered DAB+/FM radio. It comes with a pouch that not only protects it, but it allows for all the items be tucked away nicely and compactly. Coming with an integrated 800mAh rechargeable LI-ion battery you can charge it via solar power or you can simply choose to use AAA batteries. You can charge the stork in sunny conditions or charge by USB. Don't worry about the sound quality-it is extremely clear and loud. A must for any campsite!
This month we are celebrating a year in our new premises at the Menta Business Centre in Bury St Edmunds. We love our unit and are happy for customers to come and see us over here to collect a package or discuss the best prioduct to use. Contact Nigel on 01284702840 who is always ready to help and advise.
Providing food for birds is one of the most helpful things you can do for your garden visitors, so long as you are thoughtful with your feeding. We have a selection of gorgeous bird feeders made from recycled paper, yogurt and plant pots! Made by ashortwalk, a company offering pioneering eco products, we absolutely love them. Take a look at our Birdfeeding section in Garden and Outdoors. The RSPB and the British Trust for Ornithology both suggest feeding birds all year round.Putting out a good mixed feed on bird tables and in feeders will encourage most urban birds into gardens, providing them with essential energy.
We have just launched a new brand on the website-one with all the credentials that we love at smartgreenshop and the products for garden and home are fab. ashortwalk is a product design and manufacturing company based near Truro, Cornwall. Started in 2003 by Dan who left his previous job as a product designer/inventor at Dyson and moved to Cornwall in order to realise a long-held desire: to set up a business, and live, 'ashortwalk' from the sea.
They have come a long way in 13 years, from their initial range of tide and time clocks. They now offer a range of pioneering ECO products...from house numbers and house signs, to unique tableware all sold throughout the world via some very respected retail brands.
Their key to staying competitive in the global market from a shed in Cornwall has always been to design and manufacture unique, functional products. They are no longer in a shed, but their philosophy is still the same...and most importantly they are ashortwalk from the beach...just!
We are excited to announce the launch of a new range of select products in our shop. Baby eco toiletries. Ecozone’s organic and natural formula based Baby & Kids skin-care range, aims to reduce the amount of harmful nasties found in most skin-care products. The plant-based ingredients are Dermotologically Tested and Allergy Friendly, therefore your little ones will be safe from toxic impurities and will be able to enjoy these products knowing just how safe and skin-friendly they are! Our range provides you with all the essentials to protect your baby’s skin from exposure to chemicals and things such as detergents that can cause skin irritation, dryness and chafing.
March is the month to start to think about your garden again. Our Nether Wallop products are beautifully crafted in the UK and are a joy to use so take a look in our Garden section.
Always ready to use our new products ourself at home we have just set up the Owl Intuition E Smart Electricity Monitor. An intelligent bit of kit and fascinating to see what it is costing in real pennies when you turn on the kettle or dryer. Great for checking what you use when not in the house or at night. Other than the fridge maybe what else is on ? You can look at your consumption in real time on your phone, tablet or computer plus there is an Android and Apple App if you want to use those. It is simple to set up-the sensor transmitter clips on to your cable in the electric box and the network Owl plugs into your broadband router. If you need any help with setting up an energy monitor or any other of our products phone us on 01284702840 for expert advice.

Postal Strikes: All of our post is either by courier or goes direct to "Royal Mail". The strike action is by "Post Office" staff, but as none of our post goes through the post office, it should not be effected.
We have also reduced the price of our next working day courier service to just £2.99 to give all our customers the chance to get their orders before the Christmas break
Switching the Christmas tree lights off at the end of the day is always a problem. We have a solution for you. No more fighting throught the branches to get to the sockets. Use our Pro-Elec 3 Sockets Remote Control Set HHC9938B-3. It uses radio frequency to control your wall sockets with the remote control provided. Because the remote control uses radio frequency, it will work at a distance up to 30mtr, even through walls and floors. This makes it ideal for switching off and on wall sockets that are hidden behind furniture or difficult to reach.
With the cold weather starting why not use our ever popular Radiator Booster? Simply pop it on the radiator and feel it blow the warm air into your room.
We are now able to offer brilliant value on parcel courier services to many European, destinations having negotiated an excellent rate for our customers.Typical prices work out at less than £1 a kilo for instance we have just sold 20 Owl Micro Energy Monitors to Belgium and the shipping cost was only £16. It goes without saying that we continue to offer the best rates to our homegrown customers and provide a free service for standard postage to the UK.
Despite much of the country experiencing fine weather this is always the time of year to consider your heating bills. Check out our This Month's Special Value the Radiator Booster MK3 Compact. By "sucking up" the lost heat from behind your radiator and gently circulating it around the room, the Radiator Booster mixes warm and cold spots, giving you a consistent, even room temperature for less heat. We have had excellent feedback on this origibnal version of the booster and use one on two of our lounge radiators all winter.
