Who we work with
Cut Your Carbon works with local authorities, businesses and charities to enable schools to access our training. We also work directly with schools.
Ecomerchant (www.ecomerchant.co.uk) sponsored us to go directly into two schools. Their links with the local County Council has meant more schoolchildren in Kent can now play Cut Your Carbon and reduce their personal CO2emissions.
Second Nature who produce Thermafleece sheep’s wool insulation are working with us to introduce Cut Your Carbon into all junior schools in Cumbria.
Eurban (www.eurban.co.uk) design and build solid timber school buildings. They are working with Cut Your Carbon to combine a sustainable learning environment with carbon literacy for pupils.
