Find a renewable energy supply deal and switch over to it.
What difference does it make?
The right transfer can have a massive impact ... The biggest impact you can have is to transfer to renewable energy - and you don't need to spend silly money. A typical family can save between 500kg and one tonne of CO2 a year by switching to a renewable electricity and gas package.
This activity lowers your carbon footprint by:

Step by step
Go to a comparison site and see if you can find a green deal as good as your current deal. Be sure to filter for green deal or 100% renewable energy.
Make the switch by committing to the chosen supplier. If it turns out to be too expensive, don't worry. Prices often change so look again in a couple of months time. Once you do switch, send us a photo of the confirmation email or letter (but make sure you cover up your personal details).
If you did make the switch, stick your shirt on and run around the room! You've just competed the activity with the biggest impact on CO2 emissions AND netted yourself 10 goals. That's got to be worth a celebration!
Great! Just send us proof and you score the goals.
If you have your own contract with the electricity supplier, you can. But if that is held by the landlord, you will need to ask them. Try – they might be up for it.
If it's too expensive, don't put yourself under pressure. But there are lots of green tarifs around the same price as fossil power, so it's worth looking around.
