Les Happy Frogs have a green policy.
We walk to and from school. Sometime we cycle to school.
We use local products whenever possible and organic products as often as possible. We try to buy in local shops.
We try not to waist food or paper.
We use rechargeable batteries and battery charger. I am happy to use cloth nappies if supplied by the parent.
We use ECOVER cleaning products.
We encourage wildlife in the garden
I have a membership to RHS, RSPB, Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth Harrogate.
We recycle as much as possible, all paper, Glass, tins and cans are recycled. Sometime we pick up litter on the Stray or on our route from school to put in our recycling bin.
I would like to see "Harrogate Plastic Bag Free" therefore I refuse free plastic bags in shops unless I really need one.
We use low-energy light bulbs where possible and switch off light when not necessary.
I have installed Cavity wall insulation in Silverfields Road in 2000 and in Lynton Gardens in 2009.
We have monitored our energy usage thank to an Energiy monitor borowed from the library.
We have swiches in place on TV and PC so that when we put the TV ot PC on stand-by, the switch turns all the appliances connected to it off including the Wii (which, without this stays on stand-by). We have replaced our electric shower by a shower fed from our hot water tank with an efficient shower head.
I don't shop in shop who leave their door open to let the heating out and the cold in.
In 2010 I had registered to 10:10 and I had pledged not to fly that year.
My green intention for the near future:
Do more green stuff in the garden.
