Have a sustainable story to share?
We are always looking for great projects to feature in Renew magazine. We look for projects that contribute to household sustainability, whether DIY or not.
For example, we’d be interested in hearing how you went about installing underfloor insulation, whether you did it yourself or got someone to do it for you, particularly if you have data on how it affected energy bills, indoor temperatures and comfort. Or tell us how you reused materials in your sustainable renovation. Or let us know how you programmed an Arduino to monitor internal temperatures pre/post energy efficiency upgrades, and the results.
If you read the magazine, you’ll know our areas of interest include energy efficiency, solar power, battery systems, insulation, building materials, water conservation, recycling and sustainable transport. We’re interested in a lot of projects to do with sustainability at home, but before writing yours up it’s best to check with us first, by filling in the form below!
