How environmentally friendly are you?   Try answering the following questions. They're based on 'The Environment of Basingstoke, towards 2010', a forum held at the Anvil early in 2001. If you can answer “yes” to the questions you should be polishing your halo - and exploring even more ways of protecting our fragile and special environment so as to conserve our depleting resources!

  • Do you recycle organic material for compost, paper, glass, cans, foil, cardboard, textiles, oil and batteries, mobile phones, laser and ink cartridges?
  • Do you have your car regularly serviced and do you walk or cycle if your trip is less than 2 miles?
  • Do you buy loose goods and re-use plastic bags for pedal bin liners or use them again when shopping?
  • Do you save water by showering and / or if you use the bath, do you share it?
  • Do you use energy saving light bulbs and do you turn the lights off when the TV's on or rooms are not in use?
  • Do you buy recycled paper, use both sides, and keep scrap paper for draft notes, doodling, children’s play-paper and shopping lists?
