Learn About Greener Living From The Shaftesbury Residents Who Have Made Changes

If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, you’ll soon be able to visit locals’ homes to see how they have used technology to cut their energy or water bills.

North Dorset is joining the Green Open Homes Network. Rachel Bodle of Planet Shaftesbury says a database is being compiled that will list locals who are prepared to open their doors and chat through the successes and pitfalls of greener technology.

Rachel says the strength of this project is that it’s not commercially driven. Anybody considering making changes can get honest, first-hand experience without the sales flannel.
