There's lots you can do to get involved - whether by reducing your energy consumption or raising funds for good causes.
Every one of us uses energy in the form of electricity, gas or oil - whether it's for heating or lighting our homes or operating electrical products such as TVs, laptops and kettles. Using this energy contributes to greenhouse gas emissions that most scientists agree are causing climate change.
There's a lot of it around, but not enough to drink - over a billion people cannot get clean water and over two billion people have inadequate sanitation. Climate change is likely to make matters worse - either too little available or more floods and damage. Using water is likely to become more expensive.
If everyone consumed as many natural resources as we do in the UK then it has been estimated that we would need three 'planet earths' to support us! So helping to conserve resources by 'reducing, re-using and recycling' will help future generations to continue to enjoy the benefits of our planet.
All charities, whether local or national, are finding it difficult to raise funds in these challenging economic times. Help us to help them by making a difference:
We're happy to consider applications from any UK or RoI based charity, community group or not-for-profit organisation, but we're unable to support applications from overseas charities, from political or campaigning groups or from religious organisations that are unable to demonstrate a wider community benefit. If you'd like to apply for a charitable donation, please go to our charitable donations page.
