Episode 1

In this opener, Ranvir and Kunle travel to Manchester to meet Sian and Glenn Absalom, who want to redo their kitchen on a shoestring budget. By installing an off the shelf kitchen made from recycled plastic and using a lino floor made from flaxseed, they keep their carbon foot print low but with stunning results. And with new double glazing and energy efficient appliances they hope to slash their bills. For a bit of eco-inspiration, Ranvir heads to visit a flat pack Huf Haus which runs using no fossil fuels.
