An Ashden Award winner in 2009, the Shropshire energy charity Marches Energy Agency inspires communities to adopt low carbon lifestyles.
One of MEA's successful initiatives was Eco Vehicle Top Trumps. MEA says:
Our pack contains 30 different vehicles, from vans to bikes, busses to sports cars. Vehicles include conventionally powered low emission cars such as the Toyota Aygo and alternatives such as biodiesel, bioEthanol, bioMethane and electrically powered engines.
When it was first produced, a pack of Eco Vehicle Top Trumps were sent to each of the 3000 secondary schools in the UK. With only a few packs now left, make sure you order yours soon. They're available on eBay.
Marches Energy Agency (MEA), a 2009 Ashden Award winner, has produced an excellent workbook for decision makers on how to achieve a low carbon footprint.
The workbook aims to inspire action, as MEA Director Richard Davies says "it seeks to help all that use it to get from aspiration to planning practical action". It is packed full of practical advice on how to calculate your carbon footprint, create a vision and make it happen. The pack is produced by the MEA in partnership with the Energy Saving Trust.Download the workbook and accompanying worksheet from the MEA Carbon Forum website.
