"Dear Chris, Each year Leeds generates over 6 million tonnes of CO2 and in the last few years the people who work and live in Leeds are now starting to experience the effects of climate change. The Leeds Climate Pledge is a great opportunity to do something positive about climate change in our city. The Leeds Climate Pledge will help you calculate your carbon footprint, then all you have to do is to decide what steps you want to take (large or small) to reduce your carbon emissions. You may want to focus on reducing your energy bills and save money at the same time, start recycling or simply make up your own. It’s up to you. By emailing a pledge postcard you can show friends and family what you are doing to help the environment and encourage them at the same time. The more people you tell, the greater the impact for Leeds! Regards, Steve."
We all need to do something to reduce our carbon footprint and if you want to find out more about the Leeds Climate Pledge visit http://www.leedsinitiative.org/environment/pledge_1.aspx.
