The Save Energy Campaign will actively promote energy efficiency within the New Forest area to help residents’ wellbeing and support a more sustainable lifestyle.
The New Forest is a very special place and we want to keep it that way. Some of the ways which the Save Energy campaign focusses on include reducing travel to work mileage, reducing food miles and promoting sustainable tourism.
The Save Energy campaign of course crosses across a number of others with what it seeks to achieve. For example by shopping and buying locally (using your Brand New Forest Card of course) you are reducing your carbon footprint. Similarly Better Broadband locally will allow more people to work from at home, also reducing their travel and subsequent carbon footprint.
New Forest Tour
A great way to see the New Forest during the summer months is aboard the New Forest Tour. The New Forest Tour is an open top bus experience taking in the best scenery, villages and attractions of the New Forest National Park.
Recent figures showed the existing red and green routes of the tour saved an estimated 147,000 private car miles, and contributed an estimated £500,000 to the local economy.
