MORE PLANTS & TREES to give wildlife a helping hand & suck up carbon

  • ​Fill any outdoor space you've got with wildlife-friendly flowers and shrubs (see Wild Wanstead for ideas)

  • Plant more trees in your garden - probably the easiest way to offset carbon

  • Green up dead areas on driveways and patios

  • Don’t use chemical weed or pest killers

  • Try growing-your-own (herbs, tomatoes and green beans are easy)
