Sustainable Cottenham Group
Probably the easiest way to reduce your carbon footprint is to take steps to reduce permanently, without affecting your lifestyle. People will always reject long term sacrifice, a major reason why all diets start in January and fail in February, so better insulation and appliance use in your home (about a third of your footprint) can reduce impact long term. The Cottenham group are encouraging villagers to take up an offer to insulate your home based on a standardized quote and work order. This has been set up in conjunction with local councils to simplify getting insulation installed and reduce the cost to homeowners.
For anyone using this scheme, a referral portion is given back to the Parish Council through the Sustainable Cottenham Group.See also -Community escapes big British Freeze and Thermal Imaging for Insulation.
