Plugin to EcoTeams

Housing Associations in the Midlands are using EcoTeams to engage their residents on saving energy and water.

The project, Plugin, is run in collaboration with the Environment Agency, Severn Trent Water and South Staffs Water and five housing associations in the Midlands. Free water saving kit (provided by the water companies) is being installed in by housing associations in residents homes.

Meanwhile, staff and residents have been trained with the EcoTeams activities so they can use them with tenants and residents groups or at events. So far over 60 people have received training in Birmingham and Wolverhampton, with more training sessions booked.
