New environmental group in Derbyshire call on residents to make more 'eco-friendly' choices

The 'Derbyshire Climate Coalition' are hoping the county can be 'zero carbon' by 2030.

A 'climate emergency' has been declared by a new environmental group set up in Derbyshire.

They're putting pressure on local authorities in an attempt to make the area 'zero carbon' by 2030.

Wendy Buller is a spokesperson for the Derbyshire Climate Coalition.

She believes humanity is under threat; "Things are getting very desperate. We've got rising sea levels and dreadful levels of air pollution. We need to take emergency action in order to address the problems which face humanity."

"We can walk or cycle places more often. We can turn down the heating slightly and just put a jumper on instead."
