The Greening Campaign
Do you want to save energy, and money, reduce waste and help to create a ‘greener’ Odiham and North Warnborough?
As everyone is aware, we are all facing a global climate crisis and a global energy crisis which has just become even more acute. Even with the government action to cap energy prices at £2500 per annum for gas and electricity users, most of us will be facing a significant rise. Odiham Parish Council has adopted an environmental action plan and taken two important steps to mitigate the effects of climate change and energy price challenges in our community. These are a Biodiversity Action Plan to address the way we manage OPC owned land, and to join the Greening Campaign which is a community action programme.
Working together, our community can begin to make a difference to help our environment and save a lot of money by each making small changes.
What is the ‘Greening Campaign’? Put simply, the campaign aims to encourage and support local people to take easy and straightforward steps to reduce energy consumption, support biodiversity and mitigate climate change. You may have responded in May and June to a vote to choose 8 actions we can all take – this is phase 1.
This campaign is for everyone. We are asking everyone to join the campaign. You will be amazed how much money you will save.
We believe this is an important campaign that could benefit us all –individuals, families, organisations, businesses and the Parish as a whole.
