Sign up for green-mails

EVER wanted to know how a toilet hippo can help you save water, or how to grow your own vegetables?

Derbyshire County Council is inviting households to join their Eco Challenge and receive a monthly email with tips on cutting utility and food bills and reducing your environmental impact.

County councillor John Allsop said: “This is a really easy way for busy people to make a difference.

“We’ll also be asking people to share with us, if they want to, which steps they already take.”

Households signing up this month will be entered into a prize draw to win a £100 energy monitor. There will also be monthly prize draws and a final prize when the challenge finishes in six months’ time.
