Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
In Worcestershire we recycle! You can help us by refusing packaging and bags you don't need and using the recycling banks you'll find in many places across the county. Reusable cotton shopping bags are available from the Tourist Information Centres in Bewdley and Worcester. And if you can recycle where you're staying - please do. Even better! http://www.letswasteless.com
Get out of the car!
Walking, cycling and riding are great ways to see the area without adding to traffic. Use public transport if you need to travel to your start point, but try exploring near to where you are staying - there are some fantastic places to see right on your doorstep....just ask! Choose How You Move
