Wedmore residents urged to go green

WEDMORE residents are being challenged to reduce their carbon use in a bid to help the environment.

WEDMORE residents are being challenged to reduce their carbon use in a bid to help the environment.

Wedmore Green Group chairman Steve Mewes is offering 'score sheets' to residents who want to be green.

The score sheet can be used to monitor carbon emissions in homes and businesses and residents can decide how much they want to reduce their CO2 by over 12 months. Once they have 'pledged' to reduce their emissions by a certain amount, Wedmore Green Group will plant a tree in the new community woodland off Gooseham Lane.

At the end of the 12 months residents will be able to look at their pledge and see how well they have got on.

Steve said: "There is no escaping the simple fact that humans, especially in the rich countries of the West, are emitting far too much CO2 for the planet to cope with.

"To the green group, 'doing my bit' means a lot more than just recycling glass bottles and having a few low energy lightbulbs."
