  • Reduce, Re-use & Recycle - say no thank you to extra packaging, bags, plastic, microbeads.

  • Follow the Countryside Code and take care of the natural environment.

  • See local, buy local & eat local - air miles food, out of its local environment growing season, is a significant pollutant.

  • Switch lights off when you go out; close windows and doors when heating is off.
