Student Switch Off NUS Ben & Jerry's Carbon Leapfrog Degrees Cooler NUS Extra Image Map


I prefer 30 competition

Get your camera ready, we’ve just launched an exciting energy-saving themed photo competition with our biggest prizes to date!

Join us in supporting the ‘I Prefer 30’ campaign, and you could win a massive £250 of high street vouchers – just by spreading the word about washing your clothes at a lower temperature.

Take a selfie with your washing machine set at 30, and upload it to the NUS Facebook page for your chance to win. (Don’t worry if you’re not on Facebook, you can email your entry to us instead.)

Three winners of £250 of vouchers each will be drawn at random on 1 July 2014 and there will also be £250 of vouchers for the funniest entry, so why not bring that ridiculous fancy dress costume out of retirement?

With the average student spending a whopping £500 on energy each year, turning your washing machine down to 30˚c will help you make savings on your bills.

If that’s not enough of an incentive, if we all turned our washing machine down by just three degrees, we’d save carbon emissions equivalent to taking 127,000 cars off the road! Washing at 30˚ makes a huge difference.

Upload your photo today and you could be winning £250 of high street vouchers. Wash at 30˚c, save energy, save money!
