I’ve just signed up to the 10:10 campaign, something I’ve been meaning to do since I moved to Dorset. The campaign is designed to unite every sector of British society and by working together we can achieve a 10% cut in the UK’s carbon emissions in 2010.
By signing up you’re not just talking about climate change you’re committed to doing something about it. But this needn’t be a major thing. How long does it take to turn down the thermostat, turn off your computer at night or drink water from a tap? Replacing light bulbs is easy enough with energy companies showering us with freebies and recycling bins are provided by pretty much all councils these days.
There’s still a few areas to work at but it just shows that the little actions soon build up. To steal an old government campaign slogan, if everyone ‘does their bit’, we’ll achieve greater things.
