An environmental campaign orchestrated by the Sun has been praised for helping provide better access to cheap energy and reducing emissions.
The paper reports that it recently gave away 4.5 million energy-efficient light bulbs to its readers, which help to reduce domestic electricity usage while also lasting many times longer than normal light bulbs.
Climate campaign Together estimated that the initiative had the environmental impact of taking 56,000 cars off the roads, while a range of measures such as installing cavity wall and loft insulation were carried out by other members of the public.
A spokesman for the organisation told the paper: "Sun readers led the way. It's (the power saving) equal to not making 11 billion cups of tea."
In addition to the electricity saved, Together estimates that Sun readers saved 144,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide, one of the most potent greenhouse gases responsible for climate change.
This follows the news that several energy companies have been criticised in recent weeks for choosing to send out energy-saving light bulbs rather than investing larger sums in longer-term insulation.
