Action on particulate pollution
Oxford FoE is working with Oxford City Council on a new campaign to tackle the health and environmental harms of using wood burning stoves. Under the banner ‘Do You Fuel Good?’ the campaign aims to educate and inform anyone who uses wood burning stoves and open fireplaces on the harms they cause, and inform them of ways to reduce their negative impacts on human health and the environment. In Oxford city, 66% of all local fine particulates (PM2.5) come from domestic heating, compared with only 21% coming from transport. This includes the use of gas heating and cookers as well as solid fuel stove. For full info click here.
