Reduce your ecological footprint

Green footprint

Ecological footprints are a way of working out how much of an impact on the environment we make. How people live their lives affects the amount of resources they use and the levels of pollution that create.

Here are some things you can do to reduce your footprint:

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Say no to Plastic Bags!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Throwing things away is a waste of the resources and energy that have been used to make the product.

If we reduce, reuse and recycle instead of throwing things away, fewer new materials need to be quarried, mined or grown to make new things.

Garden waste can be composted reducing your waste by up to 40 percent.
