Optima’s first EcoTeam kicked off with a bang on Wednesday. There was lots of enthusiasm for what was discussed and lots of ideas for how to take EcoTeams forward. Here is some of the feedback:
“I learnt how to save money and energy”
“Very interesting … lots of information”
“I will discuss some of the information I have learnt with other residents and also local parents”
“The trainer gave valuable information as well as sharing great ideas on how to save energy.”
“I learnt that I can be even more responsible for my energy usage.”
“I will be able to monitor and control my costs a lot more.”
Participants were encouraged to think about what the next steps were for them:
“I will stay in the shower for a shorter time”
“I will make sure the TV is off”
“The next steps will be sharing with others how important our environment is by making a difference.”
The ultimate comment was that the evening “could have been a little longer”, which is always a good sign. Well done to the staff and residents who lead the meeting.
It’s not too late to get involved, as Optima will be running more EcoTeams in the next few months. To find out more, contact Bernie McCullagh on 0121 687 3119 or email email@example.com.
