Here at OggaDoon, we’re big believers in sustainability. After all we only have one home, planet Earth. A website with this same approach called One Home launched at the end of April and is a new not-for-profit enabling the environmental industry to give consumers coherent, engaging information. This should speed up the transition to a net zero carbon Britain through a cross-industry portal.
The One Home website covers a wide range of topics designed to act as a guide for anyone looking to move towards a low carbon lifestyle. These include how to make your home warmer through energy efficiency, information on the carbon emissions of the food we eat and no fly holiday ideas. There is also advice on adapting to the reality of climate change, including keeping your home dry during floods and tips to help wildlife and plants in the garden thrive despite climate change.
Currently, this is the only website available in the UK that offers a ‘one-stop shop’ on sustainable lifestyle choices, covering the entire suite of climate actions.
It was founded by Angela Terry, an environmental scientist who has 20 years’ experience working in the renewables industry and was one of the first pioneers of community renewable energy, raising more than £15 million for solar and wind farms.
Angela says: “Having worked in the environmental industry for many years, I saw a real need for one platform which brings together accurate, practical information into one place that equips people with the know-how on what they can do to make a difference and also how to adapt to climate change. One Home fills this gap.”
One Home is the project of a new Community Interest Company called Climate Alliance, which was set up in 2017 as a not-for-profit social enterprise. Companies that join the Climate Alliance share its ambition to increase the market for clean technology, reduce carbon emissions and help protect our planet.
