Expert advises: Act now on climate change

Recycling is just one way to be kinder to the earth

People need to act now and go green rather than have to deal with the consequences later, one expert has advised.

A spokesman for the WWF, an international organisation which focuses on a range of environmental issues, said consumers and businesses need to take short-term action to achieve long-term success.

Colin Butfield, head of campaigns at the group, explained although small things like switching off lights would only save a minimal amount of energy it could have a greater impact later.

"From a UK business point of view tackling climate change is actually going to be a very positive thing and probably considered far more positive than to leave it unchecked and to have to deal with the impact," he added.

Recycling mobile phones is one way in which companies and consumers can limit their environmental impact, as well as generate cash to pay for the latest contracts.
