Low impact living initiative

It is now time for us all to take responsibility into our own hands - our government doesn't look like it is about to lead the way so we need to. Carbon emissions are just one of the aspects of our lives that need immediate attention.

low impact livining initiativeThe low Impact Living Initiative (LILI) is an environmental organisation founded in 2001 They help people to reduce their environmental impact through a series of hands-on practical courses. Many of these courses promote self-made solutions and the use readily available materials that can mean great savings on technology that is otherwise overpriced. The use of wood for heat (very applicable to people on the Stovesonline website) is just one of their useful courses. For further information please visit the Low impact Living Initiative website.
