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 – Engage leg power: leave the car behind and walk instead. You’ll cut down on CO2 emissions and help create a less congested Scotland. And you’ll feel great – walking helps us cope with stress and improves your mood!
Mission 2 – 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.
Mission 3 – Now the nights are drawing in, turn down your thermostat by just one degree. You'll cut your energy bills by around £90 a year, help create a greener Scotland and still be warm and cosy.
Mission 4 – Give food waste the chop by using up leftovers, reducing what you buy and planning meals ahead of time. The average Scottish household throws away around £470 worth of food every year. Shop savvy and you'll waste less and save money.
