There’s a whole world of waste out there. But tackling it shouldn’t be mission impossible. Small changes all add up to helping Scotland’s fight against climate change.
So be a hero of our time, just by quietly saving the world.
Mission 1 – Give food waste the chop by using up leftovers, reducing what
you buy and planning meals. The average Scottish household throws away around £470 worth of food
every year. Shop savvy and you'll have less waste and save money too.
Mission 2 – Engage leg power: leave the car behind for all those short trips
and walk instead. You cut down on CO2 emissions and help create a cleaner, less congested Scotland. You'll feel
great too – walking helps us cope with stress, burns calories and feels good.
Mission 3 – Don't sweat the small stuff. Turn down your thermostat
by just one degree. You'll cut your energy bills by around £90 a year
and help create a cleaner Scotland. You won't even feel the difference, you'll still be warm and cosy.
Mission 4 – Make a clean getaway. Set the washing machine to 30 degrees, it'll save energy and cut those fuel bills. Besides, a lower temperature wash is kinder to your clothes and they'll emerge just as clean.
