Have a Green New Year
As the festivities draw to a close, many Scots are beginning to think about making New Year resolutions. While these usually take the form of dieting, giving up smoking or getting fit, this year why not consider improving your environment as well as your health?
Wishing everyone a Green New Year, Scotland's environment watchdog, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) has the following tips to help you become more environmentally friendly in 2006.
Lifestyle changes are needed now by all of Scotland to help maintain and improve the state of our environment.
Recent research commissioned by SEPA has shown that the environment annually delivers around £3,400 worth of benefits to each person in Scotland. That's £17billion* annually. The responsibility for protecting these benefits lies with the Scottish people, so we all should be taking steps to limit our own impact on the environment.
Many more ideas on how to reduce your impact on the environment are available on the SEPA Website, at http://www.sepa.org.uk/green/index.htm . Take a look and see how you can make a big difference by making small changes.
SEPA will be publishing the State of Scotland' Environment Report in 2006. The report will give details of the improvements and progress of the Scottish environment over the past 10 years.
