Plastics are a scourge on our environment and they last a really long time. If Henry VIII had drunk from a plastic water bottle and thrown it on the ground, it would STILL BE HERE. We have taken disposable to a level which the world cannot deal with. Time to change. See the Four Rs heading for ideas on how to reduce plastic and other waste.

What is Transition all about?
Transition Towns have started up projects in areas of food, transport, energy, education, housing, waste, arts etc. as small-scale local responses to the global challenges of climate change, economic hardship and shrinking supplies of cheap energy. Together, these small-scale responses make up something much bigger, and help show the way forward for governments, business and the rest of us.
Over the next decade or two, we will have to transition to a fossil fuel free future - essential because of the catastrphic effects of climate change if we don't.
Join us and help achieve these objectives !

This quick Footprint Calculator helps you to estimate the climate impact of your own life. It is divided into various categories: transport; energy; food; waste; house building; other goods and services; and public services. At the end you'll be able to see how well you are doing, and be pointed towards ways you can try and improve this.
It's quick and easy to fill in - you don't need access to precise information. It may not quite fit your lifestyle so be creative and make guesses - but do be honest with yourself! Click the image left to find your footprint.
