How can I help the planet this year?
Green up your lifestyle and save cash:
Take action! Visit The Big Ask and tell your MP to support annual cuts in carbon dioxide emissions.
Replace ordinary light bulbs with longer lasting, energy saving ones.
Get a vegetable box delivered or buy from your local farmers market.
Share the school run with other parents or walk / cycle your children to school.
Install loft insulation - this can cut up to 20 per cent off energy bills.
Turn off appliances and light bulbs when leaving a room - avoid leaving TVs and computer screens on standby.
Recycle aluminium cans.
Compost kitchen and garden waste - contact your local council for details.
Go by train instead of plane - pick up a copy of the Green Holiday Guide.
