Most of us know of the need to reduce our carbon footprint in order to protect our future way of life, but it is often difficult to know where to start. And when thinking of making changes to your home, it is often difficult to find information from impartial sources.
Sometimes it seems you are trying to find out information for the first time - and it is hard. But you are not alone - others have been through the same problems; have encountered problems and have worked out solutions. Others have found out what works and what doesn't work for them.
This set of pages lists the experiences of local people in trying 'eco' measures and projects, in which they share their successes and failures. If you want to get in contact with them directly you can do so via our contact page.
