You can save as much as 1500kgs of CO2 over Christmas which equates to 10% of an average person’s annual emissions or as much as driving a car for 4500 miles.
The extra carbon emissions at Christmas come from increased car travel, overspending, unwanted presents, extravagant light displays and wasted food. However this can all be reduced or eliminated by following some simple advice. Take a look at our handy guide of Top Ten Tips to reduce your impact this year.
