Tracey explains how the residents of Ashton Hayes in Cheshire are doing their bit to reduce carbon emissions.
Determined to do 'their bit' in the fight against global warming, residents of Ashton Hayes are aiming to become the first carbon neutral village in England.
Residents are working with the University of Chester as part of a five year project to analyse and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and allow the village to declare itself 'carbon neutral'.
With regular surveys and emission measurements, village residents are logging information regarding home energy use, travel and transport and taking steps towards offsetting their carbon footprint.
