Third Sector to Boost Sustainable Living

An environment minister has today announced that charities will be among the third sector organisations to benefit from £1 billion of funding to advance sustainable living in the UK.

Dan Norris, who announced the funding today, said that the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games could be used as a platform to promote sustainable living.

He explained, "The London 2012 Games will no doubt inspire many people to think not only about their health but also the environment they live in.

"This funding announced today is being made available to those third sector groups who have the ability to change our lifestyles for a more sustainable future."

For a group to be eligible for assistance from the funding, they will need to prove their sustainability credentials.

This could include, demonstrating admirable policies in waste and recycling, water efficiency, active travel, greener spaces or sustainable consumption
