Get tips on going green

From recycling and reducing waste to minimising our carbon footprint, there are a number of simple ways we can all help reduce the impact of climate change and improve our environment.

Top tips include:

  • turning lights and appliances off when you don’t need them
  • replacing light bulbs with LEDs or other low-energy lights
  • repair and recycle – there are number of recycling centres sites across Tonbridge and West Malling 
  • insulate your home against drafts - find out about the Kent and Medway Warm Homes scheme
  • leaving the car at home where possible: walk, cycle or use public transport instead
  • choose fresh, seasonal produce grown locally when food shopping

The Environment Agency has produced a report on its commitment to reduce its carbon emissions to net zero by 2030. We aim to be carbon neutral in the same time frame.
