An eco team is a neighbourhood group working together to reduce their carbon footprint. The team follows a program set up by Global Action Plan to meet once a month over four months. Each meeting addresses one or more of the topics: Energy in the home, Rubbish, Travel, Water, and Shopping and Food. After discussing the topic each member of the team sets three actions to take to reduce their own carbon output related to the topic. The team measures their gas and electricity usage and rubbish and recycling over the course of the program so they can track their progress.
