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!
