Lucie, an Essex resident and Carbon Cutting Essex app user, said: 

“I didn’t know if the Carbon Cutting Essex app would be much use to me as I consider myself fairly eco minded. However, I enjoyed the quizzes, and the way information was presented and was pleased to learn more. Even better, I won a £25 prize.”
