ICalculating your own individual carbon footprint is just the beginning... over the next months and years, each 'small step' in the form of one individual's carbon footprint will build up into a valuable picture of climate-change activity throughout Herefordshire. At county level and also in every parish the data collected will also be fed through to the UK government to help collate national and international figures.Once your footprint has been calculated you will be offered you some useful advice on how you can reduce your impact, and guidance on actions you can take in order to make the planet, and more importantly Herefordshire, a sustainable place to live. This could include getting involved with others interested in doing the same - for example by joining a Carbon Reduction Action Group (CRAG). In this way we will all be strengthening local communities, by increasing awareness, involvement and co-operation between different groups and organisations across the county!
If you think you haven't got time, or don't see the point for whatever reason, just remember - saving the climate is about reducing energy, and reducing energy means SAVING MONEY! Most people end up saving money in significant amounts when they start looking at their carbon footprint and energy efficiency.
