The Sun - Britian's top tabloid has gone green

The Sun's very own green glamour queen Keeley has given her top tips on how to make temperatures soar while keeping global warming down. Just in case you didn't pick up your copy last week, here are Keely's Top Tips:

Blinding bedroom performance
Turning off lights can be a big turn-on. Feel around in the dark in the bedroom, you’ll cut your bills and reduce CO2. Lighting can make a big impact on your electricity bill so swap harsh lightbulbs for romantic candles.
Wheely Keeley
Cycling instead of driving will tone you up, giving you a fantastic physique and making you irresistible to the opposite sex. And leaving the car at home cuts carbon emissions. Cycling shorts optional.
Boost your sex drive
Halve the number of cars on the road by offering that special someone a lift to work. If you can’t pluck up the courage to ask them on a date then it’s the perfect way to get to know them.
Share a steamy bath
Using water whacks up your energy bill. A shared dip in the tub will cut a couple’s costs.
Get off your butt
Lots of people have admired my butt. Collecting rain water for your garden in a water butt is a great way of preserving resources. They are easily plumbed into your existing guttering and downpipes.
Chest is best
Always my motto! Chest freezers have thicker insulation, meaning they use half as much energy for any given volume of food storage.
Slip into something comfortable
Take off your shoes when entering your home. Roadside soil can be poisoned with lead from car fumes. When dragged into the house, this contributes to the toxins which settle on the carpet.
Don’t boil over
Don’t waste energy by boiling too much water. Use the right sized pan when cooking. If boiling an egg, use an egg pan and the smallest hob. With vegetables, use just enough water to keep them covered. Use saucepans with lids to reduce cooking time.
Go digital
I insist my sexy pics are taken by digital camera, so invest in one. Film processing and developing uses toxic chemicals and paper.
Show eco undie-standing
Hand-washing underwear with a gentle, eco-friendly detergent will make your clothes last longer and save on electricity. And opt for undies made of organic cotton.

Don't you just love her?

Is silicone biodegradable?

Good point. I'll add this to my list of Great Inventions Yet To Be Invented To Save The World. It tops John's biodegradable ORGANic condoms - melt in the mouth, not in the hand (no, no - that really is too much information)
