Make a change for climate week


RESIDENTS across Derbyshire are being urged to think about what they can do to help the environment as part of Climate Week.

Derbyshire County Council is backing the national campaign, running from March 12 to March 18, to inspire a new wave of action on climate change.

And the authority is kicking off the action with a series of Love Food Hate Waste cookery demonstrations at Sainsbury’s stores at Dronfield on Saturday March 10, Ashbourne on Sunday March 11 and Matlock on Friday March 16.

The roadshows will run from 10am to 3pm and there will be plenty on offer from top culinary tips and ideas, to advice on how to save on your shopping bill, cut down on your waste and reduce your carbon footprint − as well as plenty of tasty treats to try.

There will also be a range of top tips on our website about how to help cut carbon with a new tip each day of the week.

Councillor John Allsop, Derbyshire County Council’s cabinet member for technology and recycling, said: “Climate change affects us all and we all need to act now to help minimise the effects in the future.

“That means cutting down on the fuels and materials we use and reusing and recycling more.

“By taking a few simple steps, together we can all make a big difference.”
