About us.....

Abingdon Carbon Cutters is a Community Action Group formed to help reduce the carbon footprint of Abingdon in response to climate change, and to promote a sustainable and resilient lifestyle for our town as fossil fuel stocks decline. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at St Ethelwold's House, which is here.

At some meetings, we have guest speakers to present various topics, and at others we discuss our own personal actions to address climate change. The group has a focus on encouragement, both of one another, and of the town community.

The Greening Campaign

On October 10th Sustainable Wallingford is going to launch their ‘Greening Wallingford’ Campaign.

This involves getting as many households as possible, in Wallingford , to agree to undertake five simple Co2 reduction challenges for a year.

All the challenges have been given a Co2 and money saving allocation, by the Energy Saving Trust. Sus Wall are providing every household with a Challenge Card, which they display in their window if they are undertaking the challenges & then they can count the cards & work out how much Co2 they have saved as a community. They have the town council, school, churches & several other community groups supporting it and each has taken on a challenge to promote at the Launch.

The Greening Campaign originated in Petersfield & so far about 120 communities across the country have taken it up. Is this something that your CAG might like to get involved in?
