Eco-Zone for big show

PUBLISHED: 18:51 08 March 2008 | UPDATED: 08:22 28 March 2014

MARCH 7, 2008: Visitors to this year’s Royal Bath & West Show will be able to discover how to be more energy efficient while saving money.

The Eco-Zone area at the show, from 28 to 31 May, will highlight carbon footprint-improving technology for the home, including renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, biomass and biofuel. It will also showcase construction methods and green consumables.

An advice centre will show visitors easy steps towards becoming more eco-friendly and using sustainable resources.

‘Following last year’s successful debut, the innovative Eco-Zone will promote greener, sustainable living, recognising that climate change is an issue that will affect us all,’ said a spokesperson for the event organisers.

‘It will provide a valuable resource for anyone who is looking to renovate or improve their home with eco-friendly principles in mind.’

The spokesperson added: ‘The aim is to proactively encourage a greener way of life in an informative and interesting way, without preaching.’
