Top Tips for reducing your carbon footprint

Here are 3 simple tips relating to how you get to get you started.

  • Try walking or cycling to school or work for a whole week

  • If you have a car, make sure it runs efficiently by servicing it regularly, checking the tyres are correctly inflated

  • Don't leave your car idling when it is stationary, especially if it is outside a school. Any emissions coming out of the exhaust will be breathed in by small children walking past.

We will regularly be adding more tips to the list, so do keep coming back to check them out. If you have any top tips you would like to share, do let us know
