Reducing carbon footprint

Encourage others to reduce their carbon footprint

We can also ask companies and local services to reduce their carbon footprints and help them to do so. For example:

  • we can switch off lights when we leave a room at school or at the local library.
  • we can encourage local supermarkets to set up recycling points for items that are not collected from home, such as printer cartridges, batteries, clothes, glasses and shoes.
