We hope this period looking at energy has been helpful to you, and you’ve got some ideas on how you might be able to save energy at home and in the church.
Once you’ve tried to reduce your carbon footprint, might you think about offsetting the remainder? The Diocese is working with the Carbon Footprint UK Tree Planting Scheme to plant trees in areas across the Diocese to offset our mileage and other emissions from 2011.
While offsetting will not solve our carbon problems completely, it does give us a breathing pace to put longer term changes in place. We would love our parishes to contribute their offset into this fund. If you’re interested, read more here.
