Can you think of an event to hold in Tattenhall to be part of the UK's biggest celebration of action to tackle climate change and protect nature?
These are things you can do at home:
8 EASY WAYS TO SAVE MONEY BY GOING GREEN
How many do you already do?
1 Use LED light bulbs they use 75% less energy and last 25 times as long.
2 Unplug devices leaving electronic devices in standby mode accounts for 5-10% of household energy use.
3 Change the thermostat to a programmable one which automatically according to a pre-set schedule allows you to set the temperature lower when you are asleep or away.
4 Use a 30deg temperature for washing clothes and a drying rack rather than a tumble drier. Ensure the dishwasher is full before running it. Reduce the time in the shower thus saving hot hot water.
5 Cut down on single use plastic for example use beeswax wrap rather than clingfilm, a reusable bottle rather than plastic bottle and reusable straws rather than plastic ones. More than 95% of plastic is made from fossil fuel.
6 Tweak your diet using more plant based food and try to reduce the amount of food that is thrown away.
7 Old appliances should be replaced with energy efficient ones.
8 Transport try to combine trips and avoid unnecessary journeys. Make sure tyres are inflated correctly as this can reduce fuel costs. Share lifts whenever possible
