Which green energy suppliers are available in the UK, and which of their tariffs are green? This is a key question for those looking at green energy as an option.

To answer this we need to look at each green energy supplier and how green its green tariffs actually are. Some companies include green tariffs with other tariffs on their site, but they may not be 100% accurate on how much energy is actually green.

This is what we will look at today. We'll investigate green energy suppliers and their green tariffs, along with other green offers such as green credit and green loans to make it easier for you to compare green tariffs and green energy deals.

It would be impossible to cover every green supplier in the UK, so we have chosen some of the larger energy providers that have green tariffs available if you wish to look into smaller providers visit the green electricity comparison website.

There are many green energy suppliers in the UK, with some notable companies including Shell Energy, Ecotricity and Green Energy UK. There are green tariffs available on most of the 'big six' energy providers for customers who wish to choose a more green supply of energy for their homes.

In conclusion

In the UK we have many energy suppliers that can supply your home with green energy. Some green energy suppliers are greener than others, but all of their green energy comes from renewable sources.

Thank you for reaching the end of this article and we hope that we have helped you expand your knowledge on the UK's many green energy providers. While you are here take a look at some of our other articles on greener ways to live including The Definitive Guide on The Pros and Cons of Heat Pumps and The Benefits of Wheatgrass Powder.

Heat pumps are on everybody’s minds recently and with the government incentivizing that we all go ‘green’. Now, like me, the first thing you would have thought about is how do I reduce my own carbon footprint? Now you can cycle or walk to work, town etc. You can even go on a fully plant-based diet! But one of the biggest ways and the easiest is to reduce the amount of energy you use in your home, particularly your central heating and hot water use.

Making sure your boiler is properly serviced and maintained is a start, but you can go another step further. You could invest in one of the many environmentally friendly options available in this instance an air or ground heat pump! (Also known as an Air Source Heat Pump or ASHP)

Now before you go and ring a fitter to rip out your boiler and install a heat pump you should consider if a heat pump is really what you need and does your home meet the requirements for the heat pump to work efficiently? Well read on and find out the pros and cons of heat pumps!

The Pros and Cons of Heat Pumps - Pros

Sustainable And Greener Energy

1.      Vastly Lowers Your Carbon Footprint

The first and major advantage a heat pump gives you is that it drastically reduces your homes carbon footprint as it uses the air outside your property to heat your home and cool it! On average for every 3 to 4 units of energy generated from the air by an air source heat pump is the equivalent to only 1 unit of electricity being used. Cutting not only your energy bills but your emissions.

2.      Long Lasting Life Span

Unlike boilers that need to be replaced every 10 years or so, a heat pump can last up to 20 even 25 years with proper maintenance and care.

3.      Easy To Maintain

Unlike boilers when a fault or low performance occurs you can diagnose and solve these problems yourself, without the need to call out an emergency plumber. Some of these tasks to help maintain peak performance includes cleaning filters, making sure the unit isn’t blocked or choked by leaves or dust, checking refrigerant levels, and looking for leaks. Anything more you should contact a professional heat pump installer. It is also best practice to have the unit serviced once a year.

4.      Huge Potential Savings on Energy Bills

As mentioned, a heat pump can cut your energy bills along with your carbon footprint. This is because you will be using the air from outside your home to heat and cool your home. Savings can vary but you will see a major difference if you are converting over from an electric or coal heating system. You can save up to £1335 using an air source heat pump.

5.      Easy Installation

The installation of a heat pump can take only two days! And as an added bonus the installation of an air source heat pump doesn’t usually need any planning permission to install. But do check with your local authority just to make sure.

The Pros and Cons of Heat Pumps - Cons

1.      Expensive Up-Front Cost

Now while the installation may be easy the initial cost might not be easy to swallow. The average installation cost of an air source heat pump can vary from £8000 to £18,000 while the average cost for a ground source pump can range from £20,000 to £45,000, that’s not including other potential costs that might be incurred! Other charges may apply due to the size of your property and other requirements.

2.      Air Source Heat Pumps Produce Noise

While you may be helping in saving the planet you will be making some noise doing so. When running air source heat pumps do produce some noise, equivalent to an air conditioning unit. But if properly maintained and installed the noise produced can be negligible.

3.      Your Property Must Be Insulated for Best Performance

If you want to get the most out of your heat pump you will need to make sure that your home is already well insulated. But this negative can apply to every type of heating system not only heat pumps.

If heat escapes from the usual suspects (windows, doors and walls) you will need to use more energy to keep it warm! So, make sure your home is well insulated before inquiring about a heat pump.

4.      Performance Dips When Below 0°C

While air source heat pumps can work in temperatures as low as -20°C (as cold as your freezer!) their performance can take a knock. Since the air outside is colder the heat pump won’t push out the same level of heat as above 0°C.

5.      Lower Overall Savings When Compared to Low Price Mains Gas

Now if you are one of the lucky ones and have cheap mains gas you could potentially be minuscule or you could end up spending more on running costs. Having a heat pump while great for the environment might not be so friendly on your wallet.

So, there you have it, now you have the information you need to make an informed decision on whether or not a heat pump is for you. As always, we advise that you should get in touch with a professional for further information regarding heat pumps. Also, check if any incentives or grants are available to help mitigate some of the large costs of installing a heat pump to heat your home.

Camellias are dense shrubs with brilliant foliage. They offer bright, long-blooming flowers, and serve as popular foundation and specimen plants. The trick to growing a camellia plant without too much effort is to plant it correctly. Read on for more information on camellia planting and care. How to Care for a Camellia Plant Camellias have a reputation as being demanding and picky plants, but much depends on how they are planted. If you take the time to plant this shrub appropriately, your camellia plant maintenance will be significantly reduced.

Additional Camellia Plant Maintenance

You’ll find two primary species of camellias in American gardens: japonica and sasanqua camellias. The latter are hardier and tougher than the japonicas, tolerating drought and resisting disease better. Both require a little pruning, however, to maintain their beauty.

Cactus plants. We all know what they look like, don't we? Spiky, prickly things that live in a desert. Plants that like hot temperatures.

These facts are both wrong and right! SOME Cacti have spines. They are able to survive hot temperatures and dry, arid conditions. But actually the desert gets really cold at night so these clever plants are able to survive in temperatures that fall below freezing.

Cactus Growing Instructions

The best place for most cactus houseplants is a warm, bright spot. These sun-lovers do best when they get lots of direct light.

Most cactus houseplants are slow growers and don't really need much fertilizer. Just a couple of times per year will do. But if you want to fertilize your cactus regularly, do so in spring and summer with a general-purpose fertilizer formulated for use on houseplants. Follow the directions on the packaging.  

Wondering how much to water cacti? In general, you can water most types once every two or three weeks or so. If in doubt, it's usually best to water too little; cacti can rot if they stay too moist.

Because they're slow growers, you typically don't have to worry about pruning cacti.

Fuchsias with their pendulous flowers provide gardeners with endless blooms across the summer, often in eye-watering cerise pinks and potent purple fuchsia flowers. They have been hybridised widely over the years and there is a wealth of choice available for borders, pots or hanging baskets.

How to plant fuchsias?
When planting your hardy fuchsias in the ground, the base of the stem should be 5cm (2 inches) below the soil surface. This will help to protect the crown of the plant during cold winter weather. Fuchsias are wonderfully versatile and will happily grow in sun or partial shade in any fertile, moist, well-drained soil.

Wheatgrass powder is a food prepared from the cotyledons of the common wheat plant. It is sold either as a juice or powder concentrate and available from Wheatgrass differs from wheat malt in that it is served freeze-dried or fresh, while wheat malt is convectively dried.  It provides chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins and enzymes. Claims about the health benefits of wheatgrass range from providing supplemental nutrition to having unique curative properties, though few if any have been scientifically proven. Some consumers grow and juice wheatgrass in their homes. It is often available in juice bars, alone or in mixed fruit or vegetable drinks. It is also available in many health food stores as fresh produce, tablets, frozen juice and powder. Wheatgrass contains no wheat gluten.

If you are suffering from aches in the joints or osteoarthritis, try Apple-cyder vinegar!! This recipe is simple, cheap and can potentially help you. 1 table spoon Apple cyder vinegar (you can buy this from the supermarket), add to 1/2 glass of luke-warm water and sweeten with 1/2 spoon runny honey. Drink this very refreshing drink once or twice daily for 6 weeks – and feel the difference.Ditch the high heels. Follow Posh’s example and move to flats. Heels put extra stress on your knees and may increase your risk of developing osteoarthritis.Avoid neck pain. Document holders attached to computer monitors and positioned at eye-level, and hands-free telephone headsets, can reduce neck strain.Sit and stand. Neither sitting or standing on your feet all day is good for you. When possible, alternate between the two to prevent locking yourself in one position.Rest your wrists. Purchase a wrist rest for your computer.Handle heavy loads. When you lift or carry items, use the palms of both hands or use your arms instead of your hands. Hold items close to your body as it’s less stressful for your joints. For joint safety, slide objects whenever possible rather than lift them.Lose weight. You won’t just look better, you’ll feel better too. Every extra pound you carry puts four times the stress on your knees.Build strong bones. Boost your calcium intake with food such as yoghurt, broccoli, kale, figs and salmon. Go for Vitamin C. Reach for an orange and Kale Juice also wheatgrass powder. This juicecontains Vitamin C at 200% the RDA! and also other antioxidants and may help your risk of osteoarthritis.Add colour to your diet. Choose fruits and vegetables in a wide range of colours to ensure maximum nutrients, fibre, disease fighting antioxidants and an abundance of phytochemicals.Cut back on caffeine. Avoid that caffeine kick in the morning; opt instead for Wheatgrass Juice, herbal teas and water with lemon to stay hydrated.Take the plunge. Strength training, jogging and swimming allow you to keep doing many of the exercises you love, while taking a loads of your joints. But remember to warm up.Throw some fish on the grill… Or take Udo’s  Choice – a vegetarian alternative to stocking up on Omega 3 and 6. Nothing like a well oiled Stretching isn’t just for workouts. Yoga hasn’t been the hottest trend (for the last 5000 years) for nothing.


The consumption of wheatgrass in the Western World began in the 1930s as a result of experiments conducted by  Charles Schnabel in his attempts to popularize the plant. By 1940, cans of Schnabel’s powdered grass were on sale in major drug stores throughout the USA and Canada.


Extracting wheatgrass juice with a manual juicing machine.

Outdoor grown wheat grass grows slowly through the winter in a climate like that of Kansas in the United States.

Research was conducted with wheatgrass grown outdoors in Kansas. His wheatgrass required 200 days of slow growth, through the winter and early spring, when it was harvested at the jointing stage. He claimed that at this stage the plant reached its peak nutritional value; after jointing, concentrations of chlorophyll, protein, and vitamins decline sharply. Harvested grass was dehydrated and made into powders and tablets for human and animal consumption. Wheatgrass grown indoors in trays for ten days contains similar nutritional content. Wheatgrass grown outdoors is harvested, dehydrated at a low temperature and sold in tablet and powdered concentrates. Wheat grass juice powder is also available either spray-dried or freeze-dried.

Proponents of wheatgrass make many claims for its health properties, ranging from promotion of general well-being to cancer prevention. These claims have not been substantiated in the scientific literature. There is some limited evidence of beneficial pharmacological effects from chlorophyll, though this does not necessarily apply to dietary chlorophyll.

There are a number of other small studies and pilots on the possible benefits of wheatgrass juice. According to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, there may be a need for further study of wheatgrass therapy for ulcerative collitis; they cite a small pilot study which showed regular wheatgrass juice therapy significantly reduced rectal bleeding and overall disease activity.

It has been claimed that wheatgrass helps  blood flow, digestion and general  detoxification of the body. These claims have not been reliably substantiated, or are no different from similar vegetables. However, in one pilot study of children with thalassemia(a hereditary form of anemia which often requires blood transfusions), of the patients who were given 100 ml of wheatgrass juice daily, half showed reduced need for transfusions. No adverse effects were observed. Another small study of transfusion-dependent patients suffering from  myelodyplastic  syndrome responded similarly to wheatgrass therapy; that is, the intervals between needed transfusions were increased. In addition, the chelation effect (removal of heavy metals from the blood) was studied for the same patients; the wheatgrass therapy showed a significant iron chelation effect.

In another pilot, which was not placebo controlled, breast cancer patients who drank wheatgrass juice daily showed a decreased need for blood- and bone marrow-building medications during chemotherapy, without diminishing the effects of the therapy.

The food has demonstrated in vitro cytotoxicity to  HL-60 (Human promyelocytic leukemia cells).

Nutritional content

Wheatgrass proponent  Schnabel claimed in the 1940s that “fifteen pounds of wheatgrass is equal in overall nutritional value to 350 pounds of ordinary garden vegetables”, a ratio of 1:23. Despite claims of vitamin and mineral content disproportional to other vegetables, the nutrient content of wheatgrass juice is roughly equivalent to that of common vegetables.

Wheatgrass powder from is also claimed to be superior to other vegetables in its content of vitamin B12, a vital nutrient. Contrary to popular belief, B12 is not contained within wheat grass or any vegetable, rather it is a by product of the micro organisms living on plants. Analysis of B12 content in wheatgrass has confirmed that it contains negligible amounts of the compound.

Why Should I Juice

Since I am in the kitchen 24/7, making decadent meals that may not be so healthy, I am often asked, why does a chef like you juice if you can eat the most delicious food in the world? Here’s my answer from my personal experience…

Why Juice?
Juicing is a way of concentrating all the nutrients, vitamins, phytochemicals, enzymes, minerals and alkaline properties from a large quantity of vegetables and fruits.  Juicing alleviates the digestion process and speeds up the assimilation of the life-giving goodness. When you consume juice, you are giving your body a super dose of essential nutrition. And your body will thank you! But it might get through the first few days to feel the thanks.

The Tough Part
When you start a strict juicing routine, it’s common for many people to experience a detox period.  Your body may have withdrawal symptoms from the refined carbs and fats that you have been consuming prior to juicing, as they contain addictive properties.  These refined carbs (white flour, sugar, rice and potatoes) and fats (chemically processed oils such as canola, corn, and soybean) are, in my opinion, dead food with no nutritional benefit.

It should take you three to four days for your body to detox and adjust.  This is a hard period and it might be wise to advise your friends that you may not be a “happy camper” and to please make sure that they encourage you to stay on the course. Ultimately, many people find that when they know this period of detox will pass in a few days, it’s easier to start up.

Get Started With Mighty Juices
Preparation is key when starting a new diet or lifestyle change.  In order to alleviate the detox period, stock up on vegetables and fruits for at least five days before you start juicing.  Having all these vegetables and fruits in the refrigerator and pantry will keep you focused on your desire to eat healthily even when you start craving the sugar, salt, fats, that you have been accustomed to.  When you get to day four or five you will probably want to see what other vegetables and fruits you can play around with as there will be a skip in your step and the sun will start shining out of you.  This is the point at which you will have the conviction of continuing.  Your enthusiasm and willpower will determine how long you will juice for.

 Summer Juice

This is a great intro juice. The reason we like this is because it has the 80/20 vegetable/fruit ratio. It only contains six ingredients so it’s easy to make and most of these ingredients are easy to find all the time. We call it “rainbow juice” as it has multiple vegetables and fruits of different colors.

5 celery stalks
1/2 medium cucumber
1 large carrot
1 medium tomato
1/2 medium orange
1/2 medium peach

1.) Wash all ingredients.

2.) Remove pit from peach and peel orange.

3.) Add all ingredients through your juicer and enjoy!

 Grape & Golden Beet Juice

This is another super unique and satisfying juice that is great for you if you are just starting out on your juicing journey! And if you’re doing this for the first time then this is 80% vegetable and 20% fruit so drink up! The golden beet and grapes add a hint of sweetness so you’ll love the taste.

½  cucumber
1 medium tomato
1 zucchini
1 golden beet
1 ½ cups grapes
½ lime

1.) Peel the lime leaving the pith (white)

2.) Wash vegetables and fruits.

3.) Add all ingredients through your juicer and enjoy! .

New to Juicing?

This is a great intro juice if you are new to juicing.  It has the 80% vegetable and 20% fruit ratio and only contains six ingredients so it’s easy to make and most of these ingredients are easy to find all the time.

Many people are afraid to jump onto the juicing bandwagon.  It is intimidating and somewhat scary.  You are going from solid foods to liquids.  Many of us are jumping from nutritionally dead food to super foods like wheatgrass powder in your juices.  The uncertainty is overwhelming, especially if you do not know too much about food and nutrition to start off with.  There will be a thousand questions going through your mind and most of them will make you not want to start juicing.

Having discussed how to effectively start juicing with my great friend and foodie partner Jane, we came to the conclusion that it was important that we start sharing simple but effective recipes for you to try.  It was hard for me (even as a food service professional) to know where to start when I finally decided to juice, so I started easy.  I took baby steps and had to gain confidence and knowledge before trying to run.  Based on that, we will post a new and easy juice on a weekly basis.  As time goes on, we will be posting more intense and complicated super juices.  We will also be posting some great food recipes for you to try once you have reached your target but let’s focus on juice for right now.

We want to help you.  As both chefs and food lovers, we can cut through the uncertainty. 

Do You Feel Ashamed Of Your Body, well you shouldn’t, there is another way, spend enough time on this blog site and we will help you lose weight with some of the fantastic juice and green smoothie recipes with the help of wheatgrass powder and kelp powder from your number one website for all things to consume green, excuse the pun.

Psychologists ask men and women to pick the body shape which they think most closely resembles their own, and then to choose the body shape they would like to have. The further apart the body shapes the greater the ”shame”. In other words, if you think you have  Body 6 but would prefer to have Body 2, your shame factor is 4.

Modern women are constantly bombarded with images of The Perfect Body, on show in magazines, advertisements, and television soaps. Historically, the perfect body has always been the most difficult to obtain. In the 1700′s a narrow waist was considered desirable by women. Some even had ribs removed – a painful operation in the 18th Century – to obtain there ideal waist.

But the fashion for thinness reached it’s extreme in 1966 when Twiggy became the first widely – publicised example of the super slim model. Today’s women think they can shape their bodies at will, and that mental strength is the key to dieting, which it’s not. The truth is very different, however your body is shaped more by genetics than Callanetics. Your metabolic rate, the speed at which your body transforms food into energy is inherited. People who have inherited a low metabolic rate will gain weight , no matter how hard they try to slim.

The potential devastation caused by fears about appearance was highlighted once by the Princess of Wales when she suffered from the eating disorder bulimia nervosa. The disease can particularly hit women who are under stress and the newly married Princess Diana at that time would have felt a lot of pressure over her appearance. She tried to cure her anxiety by bingeing on food and then , guilty about the weight she put on, made herself sick, Diana was not alone, Faye Dunaway revealed once how fears about her weight ironically worsened her compulsive over – eating, ”When I became an actress, directors wanted me to be very thin”

Despite a backlash against modern super slim  images, many women still feel it is their duty to conform to the ideal figure and blame themselves if they fail. A famous American cartoon shows a women being hauled off to hell by the devil. ”It’s because I have fat thighs isn’t it she screams, what a load of rubbish, but there you go.

If you really want to lose weight then it’s not a problem, try juicing or a green smoothie recipe from the one’s listed on this website. Everyone should be on an Alkaline diet, exercise also helps ones body to stay in trim, you will lose weight, eat plenty of salad, also drink plenty of water during the day. Add wheatgrass powder from

We will be adding an attachment here to show people which foods are acidic, obviously the way to move forward for your optimum health and well being is to adopt an Alkaline diet or we would call it a different way of consuming all the nutrients and different foods your body could ever need and still lose weight without really trying, don’t believe me then try reading ”Eat To Live” by Joel Fuhrman available on for about £5.94

”There Is Another Way” Your body consumes a typical ”Western Diet” , don’t take my word for it, just look at what you throw down your gullet and ask yourself is this what I should really be eating, my uncle died recently, he died of a typical western diet, he used sugar alternatives and basic rubbish foods, pre-packaged full of sugar and toxic chemicals.

Just look at the obesity in the USA then look at the rest of Europe and ask yourself do I want to just become another dead statistic OR lead a powerful and energetic life consuming an Alkaline diet, NOT an Acidic one. Since I personally started with an alkaline diet be it Juicing or Green Smoothies with wheatgrass powder or wheatgrass juice I have never looked back , I have immense energy, I sleep less sometimes just 4 – 5 hours a night, I don’t get sick, get colds or flu or anything like that.

The power of Chlorophyll from wheatgrass powder or wheatgrass juice is so great, you might not initially believe me, Wheatgrass is one of the richest sources of chlorophyll on the planet, Scientists believe that Chlorophyll greatly assists with general detoxification and blood cleansing functions of the body. It is shown to promote normal cell growth and can assist with cell renewal, growth and repair. Chlorophyll also most notably boasts energy enhancing properties – a highly effective way to energise the body in the short and long term,  I will leave you with this thought below, enjoy the recipes,

This is a great intro juice. The reason we like this is because it has the 80/20 vegetable/fruit ratio. It only contains six ingredients so it’s easy to make and most of these ingredients are easy to find all the time. We call it “rainbow juice” as it has multiple vegetables and fruits of different colors.

A Chef’s Juice: Grape & Golden Beet Juice

This is another super unique and satisfying juice that is great for you if you are just starting out on your juicing journey! And if you’re on a Reboot, this is 80% vegetable and 20% fruit so drink up! The golden beet and grapes add a hint of sweetness so you’ll love the taste.
