Hi folks

It’s time for the September 2018 Pure Planet Community highlights!

As we rush headlong towards Christmas and winter, take some time to grab a warming cuppa and catch up with the community latest.

It’s a been a busy month at PP HQ and we’ve got loads of new faces in the community. We’re now nearly 7,000-strong! :D

So what happened last month? Some September highlights

Member @Ianpocock is looking to join or start some community clean energy projects. If you’ve got any ideas he could look at, why not reply to his thread?

Now that we’re officially in Autumn, @Bev has started a new thread and poll on what is the ideal temperature to heat your home, but not break the bank.

For the technical among us, here is a great discussion about home automation - including how to switch off your lights by talking to your phone! :rolleyes:

And @PeterSeaman has a question about EVs for people who have disabilities. Tips most welcome. :up:

Looking ahead to October 2018

The big one, coming soon, is an app update. There’s so much new stuff which I will update everyone about once it’s live. It’s thanks to our Members for some top ideas and helpful feedback.:raisinghands:

Also coming soon is a fresh of the community’s homepage. It won’t be a radical redesign - more of a facelift - and I will post some images into the Testing and Feedback sub-board so you can take a look.

This month, me and my colleagues at Pure Planet are taking part in the global EcoChallenge. It’s a series of small challenges to make us kinder on the environment. It’s perfect for Pure Planet Members, as we know you care too.
Also, we want to beat all the other teams! Join us here.

Finally, I’ve created a new community section called ‘Ideas Board’ - which is for members to make suggestions and give feedback on other members’ ideas.
For now, while this new section is still getting started, it’s not viewable by all members yet. It’ll be open to all soon, but if you want a sneak peek or want to get involved now, just drop me a message.
