Community Carbon Reduction Plan 2009

The changes we can make seem small, but everything we do to save energy helps. If we work together as a community we can have an even greater effect. To show just how effective we think we can be, PEDAL has come up with some suggestions for an ‘Energy Descent’ or ‘Community Carbon Reduction Plan’. We’d really like to hear what you think of them.

PEDAL’s Energy Descent Action Plan 2005

In 2005 we began to develop our own Energy Descent Action Plan (EDAP) and to begin to take steps to implement it. Many steps have been taken – by us and by others – which align with the plan. However since 2005 we have mostly focused on awareness raising and getting projects off the ground. We hope to now revisit the 2005 vision (see Porty Energy Descent Action Plan 2005) and see what to add, what to change, what to build on, what to discard. It’s a good moment to join us!

    Missing the Mica Store in Portobello high st.; was thinking how useful it would be to have a shop to rent which could be both a recycling centre and a place where local people could donate/buy and source things like screws,nuts and bolts, refurbished garden tools and , dare i say it, fork handles. My own cutlery drawer is full of stuff which “might come in useful” and so many people have sheds stacked with unused lengths of hose,plant pots,tools and garden haberdashery. It would be an easy way for folk to share plants and seeds and i know there is a wealth of trade and expertise around which retired people may want to share. We don’t have anywhere to have keys cut or blades sharpened. Jam jars, pallets, kindling and a place to volunteer, blether, get work experience and meet the porty community. Thanks for your time, best wishes , Lynn
