Better Century is a network of ordinary people, businesses and charities who are providing sustainable solutions and inspiration.  In collaboration we are improving tomorrow together. Today we are happy to announce an exciting new partnership with The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.

They also work with other organisations and landowners to protect and connect wildlife sites across the county and inspire local communities and young people to care for wildlife where they live. 

HIWWT’s Director of Advocacy and Engagement, Hannah Terry, said: “This partnership will offer our supporters a brilliant opportunity to share thoughts, advice and ideas with fellow ‘Team Wilder’ members.  By taking action in our own lives and communities, learning from each other and working together we can start to tip the balance in favour of nature’s recovery. We’re excited about engaging in this amazing new digital ecosystem of changemakers.”

Better Century Founder and Director Tom Beckett said: “We are immensely happy to be working with Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.  They are pioneering community engagement to tackle the ecological crisis and we want to make this a massive success.

This partnership is the first of many as Better Century grows its network. We are tackling critical issues for ordinary people who want to live sustainably by ensuring they are getting easy to access information as well as ready opportunities to make a difference.  By bringing together the communities of hundreds of organisations who are already providing parts of the solution we can create an unparalleled network of changemakers that can tackle the climate and ecological crisis.

The Seven Ways to Cut Carbon

Collectively, we need to halve carbon emissions by 2030. To do that we need to get down to 2.5 tonnes of carbon produced per person, per year. In the UK we produce 8.5 tonnes per person on average.

Here are seven ways to cut carbon out of your life.

Holiday sustainably and stop flying
2.2tCO2 comes from travel to and from holidays. Stop flying, pick sustainable locations, hire an electric car to get around

Cut the car out of commutes
1.4tCO2 comes from daily commutes. Cycle, walk & use public transport.

Eat less or no meat products
1.3tCO2 comes from meat consumption. Cut it down, or cut it out!

Make your house more energy efficient
1.4tCO2 comes from heating your home. Make it more energy-efficient and plan to move to heat pump tech on moving over your boiler.

Switch to 100% renewable energy
0.9tCO2 comes from electric we consume. Move to renewable energy.

Get your food locally
0.6tCO2 comes from food transportation. Eat seasonal and local!

Buy less and use less
0.6tCO2 comes from technology and other stuff we buy. Use less and be proud!
