REDUCE, RE-USE, REPAIR, RECYCLE
We have been living in a throwaway society where it’s all to easy to just throw our waste in the bin and forget about it. Unfortunately it’s now clear that by doing this we are ruining our home planet.
ECO FRIENDLY PRODUCTS
Many mainstream household products are harmful to the environment. There are a surprising number of environmentally friendly products available as alternatives.
Around Yelvertoft we have a number of local outlets offering a range of eggs, meat, fresh veg and other
foods literally produced on our doorstep.
Green energy means it comes from a renewable source and is clean and sustainable. Using it is better for the environment and the more people choose green tariffs the more renewable energy will be produced. In the UK nearly half of the energy used is renewable and is increasing every year, making it a realistic alternative to traditional, fossil fuel backed energy.
We realise that we have to take care of the planet for you, the next generation, which is why YEG would welcome your interest and contribution to any local environmental issue.
Animals and plants are as important as humans for maintaining a healthy ecological balance on this earth. The natural world, including its biodiversity, provides us with services that are critical to our wellbeing and economic prosperity. Nature is consistently undervalued and many of the services we get from nature are in decline.
