15 Mar Essex Residents Named Third Greenest Region in the UK
NEARLY half of East/East Anglia residents have stopped using plastic cups and straws to be more eco-friendly, a study shows.
More than nine in ten (94%) of East/East Anglia residents have made lifestyle changes for the planet.
While nearly three quarters (71%) are concerned about their carbon footprint and 79% consider the environment when they make any purchases or lifestyle choices.
Over half (56%) of those surveyed said they were motivated equally to make lifestyle changes that saved them money or the planet.
In a green map of Britain the independent research commissioned by Lightfoot showed that the South West, London and East Anglia have made the most lifestyle changes to benefit the environment, whereas residents in the North East have made the least.
