Carbon Savvy Lifestyle Campaign
As part of their net-zero commitments, North Devon, Torridge, South Hams and West Devon councils and a group of partner organisations are coming together to encourage us to take individual action to reduce our carbon footprints.
From the 12th to the 21st March 2021 people across Devon took part in a competition to ‘spring clean’ their carbon footprint. Often, actions that reduce your carbon emissions also improve your quality of life. For example, properly insulating your home minimises wasted energy, causing a drop in your bills and household emissions – a win-win! You can find out more here.
How is this helping Devon reach net-zero?
Action R1: Deliver targeted communication to empower people and businesses to adopt more sustainable consumption habits, prevent waste and shift to a culture of sharing, reusing and recycling.
Action R4: Encourage the enjoyment of low-carbon experiences rather than material consumption.
