Did you know that changing just one high energy lightbulb to a low energy one saves 75kg of carbon dioxide a year? That's 7,500 party balloonsful. This full-colour book provides hundreds of practical ideas for making SMALL changes to your lifestyle that can make a BIG difference to the environment. In eight sections 'How Many Lightbulbs?' will inspire you, your church and your community towards actions that will reduce your ecological footprint, from turning off the tap, to starting a church compost heap. Start making strides to shrink your ecological footprint today. This booklet supports the Church of England's major Shrinking the footprint campaign. See http://www.shrinkingthefootprint.cofe.anglican.org for more details. A percentage of profits from this title will go to support the Friends of St James' Gardens, Liverpool. This project was set up in 2001 with the aim of restoring the garden beside Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral and encouraging its use by residents and visitors. See www.stjamescemetery.co.uk/Friends.htm
