A total of 100 households were challenged to do what they could to reduce their environmental footprint. They were selected to be nationally representative - including demographics, social groups and house types. Each household received an initial environmental audit from a member of the project team and an attitudinal survey to understand their views on environmental matters. They were also given a project pack of information and ‘green’ equipment, along with £500 to spend in support of their environmental improvements.
