The everyday choices we make all have impacts on our precious planet.

We only have one Earth and are utterly dependent on it for our survival and well-being. Making simple changes in our daily lives – at home, at school, in our shopping choices and even how we travel – can reduce your carbon footprint and save you money too.

This summer we'll be posting all of our top tips on living sustainably. We'd love to hear your tips too so please visit our dedicated Facebook group to share your own ideas.
