Climate change is happening, there is very little doubt about that these days. However, whilst governments and industry are trying to do their bit to reduce the effects, it is just as much the responsibility of small business owners – and the general public – to do their bit to reduce their impact on the environment in whatever ways they can.

In every instance, these images have then been used to advertise properties that had not even been built.
