Use Less Fossil Fuels

  • Buy food that is locally produced. If it is produced at a farm nearby, then less fuel is needed to transport it.
  • Wherever possible, avoid buying processed foods. These take more energy to produce, and fresh foods are more nutritious!
  • Install solar panels on your roof at home so you can generate more renewable energy instead of relying entirely on oil, gas etc.
  • Before you turn on the ignition, ask yourself if you really need to take the car. If you’re taking a short journey, why not walk or cycle instead of using more fossil fuels?
  • Get an electric car
  • Reduce the temperature on your heating system. One degree less will save you 10% on your bills as well as using less fuel.
