1. What is Thanks a Tonne?

Thanks a Tonne is a Derbyshire wide challenge to raise awareness of the importance of saving carbon to help save our planet.

Aimed at households and schools, it is a competition to see which household can save the most carbon or the school with the biggest savings to be in with the chance of a prize - be it a home makeover or a toyota electric car.

By making small changes around the home, you can make a big difference to the environment. One tonne of carbon is equivalent to removing 100,000 balloons full of toxic gases from the Earth's atmosphere - every single year!
