A new report has found that over half of Slough residents are prepared to make ‘significant’ changes to their lifestyle to save the environment.

A nationwide survey carried out by Modular Classrooms has revealed 60 percent of the Slough residents surveyed would be willing to change their diet by eating less meat or using their cars less to fight climate change.

78% of residents also believed that it is important to teach children about the consequences of global warming, with parents stating they believe that it would be best to wait until the children were aged between 7 and 11 before they were educated on the issue.

The study also found that of those studied 60 percent said that they would considerable a school’s environmental credentials when deciding which school to send their children too. 47 percent also say they try and purchase food products without plastic whilst shopping.

Mark Brown, from Modular Classrooms, said: "It’s encouraging to see that so many people are willing to make changes to their lives to safeguard not only their future, but the future of their children.

"We can all do our bit, and what children learn in the classroom will have a big impact."
