E-mails for greener life

COUNTY residents are being urged to sign up for monthly e-mails aimed at helping them to save money and reduce their impact on the environment.

Derbyshire County Council has teamed up with charity Global Action Plan to offer tips over six months on cutting bills and living a greener life, such as growing your own food, showering instead of taking baths and how to have a green Christmas.

Emails will be entered into a prize draw to win an energy monitor worth £100.

To sign up, e-mail Derbyshire@globalactionplan.co.uk.
