Positive changes you can make for sustainable living.

Welcome to our monthly newsletter, which follows a remarkable month of very hot and dry weather with some areas around the world reaching over 50 degrees Celsius.

Interest in discussing climate change significantly increased during the heat wave. I appeared on several TV and radio shows to explain the link between burning fossil fuels and the extreme weather. I was also able to stress the positive solutions we can all take to reduce our environmental footprint, such as using renewable energy and electric cars to avoid an even hotter planet.

I’m delighted to share that iSupplyEnergy, a 100% clean electricity supplier, is sponsoring One Home.  You can read more about them and how to switch to green power here.

If you would like solar panels at home then sadly there are just six months left before the Government closes the financial support scheme to new registrations.Watch our new solar video below to find out more. 

Finally, please help us to spread the word about solutions to global warming by forwarding this email to 3 of your family and friends who would like to help protect the planet.

Best wishes

Angela Terry MSc MEI
