You can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimise your carbon footprint by making small but useful changes.

 Be energy efficient by:

  • Insulating your home and hot water cylinders.
  • Using renewable energy sources rather than fossil fuels (for example solar heating).
  • Ensuring your home heater is fuel efficient.
  • Don't use aerosols that contain greenhouse gases.

Think about how you and your family and friends get around:

  • Keep your motor vehicle well tuned and well looked after.
  • Try cycling, walking or take the bus.
  • Form a car pool.

Reduce carbon dioxide in our air:

  • Don’t burn leaves in your garden – make compost.
  • Look after the trees in your area.
  • Plant a tree.
