Everyone Is Reducing Carbon

Everyone is reducing carbon

As we all know, times are tough for everyone right now. Whether that’s food prices, mortgage or rent costs, the fuel you put in your car or how much it costs to heat and power your home – everyone’s feeling the pinch.

What is ‘Everyone is Reducing Carbon’?

Over the next four months – from November 2022 until February 2023, we’ll be sharing what we’re doing to reduce the significant running costs and environmental impact that one of our leisure centres has, and how you can help, as well as giving you ideas of how to reduce your running costs and carbon emissions at home.

New Challenges Every Month

Each month – November, December, January and February – will be devoted to a particular aspect of reducing carbon emissions. For example, November will be all about saving energy, while December will be dedicated to saving water, January is recycling and February to green travel.

Throughout each month, we will be sharing with you exactly what we’re doing to help save energy, reduce water consumption, recycling more waste and to improve our green travel credentials. We’ll also be asking you to help us out along the way – pointing out where we can improve and if there’s anything we’re not doing.

What are we doing?

What can you do to help?

If we are going to achieve as much as we want to, however, we are going to need your help. Don’t worry, it’s nothing dramatic, but as the tag line for the popular supermarket goes, every little helps – and everyone could do with a little help at the moment.
