Refuse, Reduce,
Re-use, Recycle

In 2016, a whopping 46% of the UK’s carbon footprint came from emissions released overseas to satisfy UK consumption,

(a significant increase from 14% in 1990).

Imported emissions are mostly associated with manufactured goods such as processed food, clothes and electronics.

One of the best things we can all do is buy less and reuse and recycle goods.
