Anyone within range of Bristol, please support Bristol Close the Door at their exciting launch event Folk House Cafe, Park Street, Bristol BS1 5JG. 17:30-18:30.
Kevin McCloud, Presenter, Grand Designs says:
"All shops should sign up to the Close the Door Campaign. Leaving the door open in winter to heat the street can double energy consumption and make a pretty job of just heating the planet. So just close the door, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, halve energy bills, and make customers and staff more comfortable into the bargain"
Alistair Sawday, Author, Sawday's Guides says:
"If you have never been astonished by the gales of heated air emerging from the open doors of expensively heated shops, then you might have a look at your own energy bills!
Most of us now have developed a little environmental awareness, and care about this - but how rarely do we do anything about it? It is thus a delight to hear of the recent Park St success of the Close the Door campaign. All power to their elbows, and I wish them a rich encylopaedia of street names to add to this one."
Phil Holtam, Sue Pollard and members of BUST and Sustainable Redlands have put in a fantastic amount of very effective work - and got the backing of all those Bristol MP's and the Leader of the City Council.
