A recent review: Excellent practical advice on how to cut your carbon emissions and be more eco-friendly! It covers a lot of information very concisely.

Client Testimonials


“The coaching sessions provided me a chance to make a real behaviour change in a supportive, non-judgmental way. They allowed me to make informed choices that fit with my values and lifestyle. As a result of the coaching my mindset has shifted; change might not be the easiest thing to do but it can be very rewarding!”

Jo K, Conservation Charity Worker

"Previously, the idea of being more sustainable has always been pushed to the back of my mind. Annie's coaching allowed me to create a vision for the future of my company that is achievable, attainable and relevant. Now sustainability sits right in the forefront of my thoughts and flows into every corner of my business."

Simon L, Partner, Code Print

"It's such a relief to have a personalised report which outlines both quick fixes and longer term ideas. It’s also great that the ideas aren’t overly complex or expensive which has been a worry when trying to work my way through such a confusing landscape. We are able to make changes according to our budget and skills and save money too!"

Belinda P., Local Authority Employee
