Cutting Lincolnshire’s Carbon – CLiC
Lincolnshire County Council and five local businesses worked together with the Lincolnshire Echo to produce six supplements for the paper communicating with local people and businesses on sustainability issues. They provided advice and information covering a variety of themes and encouraged everyone to get involved through the CLiC Challenges.
The supplements are all available to download, and much of the information remains relevant even after publication. The topics we covered included;
Waste and recycling – ideas to reduce the amount of waste you generate and advice on what to do with the rest that can’t be eliminated
Travel and transport – what to see and do in Lincolnshire without travelling by car and how to access information on public transport
Food and agriculture – what foods are in season when, find out about the local food producers in Lincolnshire and join the grow your own revolution
