B&Q launches campaign to cut VAT on 'green goods'
"B&Q, the UK’s largest home improvement and garden centre retailer, is today launching a petition for customers, colleagues and MPs to sign up to its campaign to get the VAT reduced on green goods.
Customers will be encouraged to sign up to the campaign by posting their support in a giant green piggy bank in store.
B&Q believes energy saving should be affordable for all and when surveyed, 95 per cent of its customers agreed that reducing VAT would encourage them to buy energy efficient products. And in an energy saving move B&Q will from this week pay the VAT on energy monitors meaning customers will be able to benefit from an extra 12.5 per cent off."
