Action on Carbon in Twyford (ACT)

We are a small group comprising two members of the Parish Council, a member of WinACC / Friends of the Earth and two others, one a co-opted member of St Mary’s PCC.  All of us are Twyford residents.

ACT’s aim is to encourage us all to take action to reduce our village carbon footprint and mitigate the effects of climate change.  We will post practical, basic ideas each month through the Twyford Information System, the Parish magazine, Pew sheet and Facebook reminding us that even small changes can be significant. We will be discussing further changes that can be made within the Parish to help focus on the need to deliver a cleaner, safer and greener  environment for us and for future generations.                                    

Here are some small changes that would make a difference:

  • Turn your thermostat down
  • Use only LED light bulbs 
  • Turn appliances off instead of leaving them on standby 
  • Measure the amount needed when using the kettle  

These changes together can potentially save considerably on household bills and help reduce carbon emissions.

So please look out for our upcoming publications & events on Energy, Buildings, Transport, Diet, Waste & more.
