Why we should fall out of love with our patio heaters



If you have begun to care seriously about the state of our planet, you might want to know that the average patio heater emits about the same amount of carbon dioxide in 4 hours as the average car emits in a whole day!

Some calculations show that a single heater releases more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year than the average fuel hungry car!

Friends of the Earth has urged the Government to ban the sale of patio heaters! Marks & Spencer and two other garden centres in the UK have already stopped stocking them! The Energy Saving Trust says that it seems so daft to buy heaters to heat the outside air when all we need to do is put on a jumper!
