Watt's this?

As part of our commitment towards greening up Craft Victoria, our Green Team recently installed a Wattson energy meter that let's us know how much electricity we're using! By monitoring our usage through how many watts we're using, it glows blue when it's at a good level and red when it's not-so-good. Oh and did we mention that it also functions as a night light and clock? Multi-talented!

All in all, it's a handy reminder to turn off heaters when not in use and to use the thermos rather than the kettle!

If you'd like to have a look at this neat little contraption, you can find it on our front desk and it looks a little bit like this (but replace the generic mug with a lovingly handcrafted porcelain beaker)

In other green news, we've recently made the switch to LED lights in the Craft Victoria shop which means long-term savings and a little bit closer to our goal of decreasing our energy consumption by a further 10% from last year's levels (we recorded a 27% reduction in energy consumption for 2010). Hurrah!
