Halifax couple win low carbon prize

Halifax couple win low carbon prize
A couple in Halifax plan to spend a recent £250 prize from a low carbon competition on a new energy-efficient boiler, it has emerged.

According to the Evening Courier newspaper, Chris Freeman and Marilyn Marshall have worked to reduce their carbon footprint by swapping plastic bags for the long-lasting variety, as well as installing energy-efficient light bulbs, creating a compost heap and using a water butt for washing their car.

For their eco-friendly efforts, they have been awarded £250 to put toward a "carbon makeover", which they intend to use to purchase an energy-efficient boiler.

The competition, which was held by Calderdale Climate Challenge in an effort to encourage residents of the region to reduce their carbon footprint, involved filling out a web survey detailing how competitors planned to make an effort to go green.

"We do care about the planet and this has really shown us what individuals do can really make a difference," Mr Freeman told the newspaper.

Carbon emissions reduction website DownWithCO2.co.uk has previously suggested that low carbon measures such as installing energy-efficient heating can create an annual cost savings of around £100 to £190 each year.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18491813-ADNFCR
