A 10ft bubble installation aims to help people to visualise how their daily activities can impact carbon emissions and make them think about how to reduce their carbon footprint.

The giant bubble has previously been showcased in London? Trafalgar Square and was on display in Stafford town centre.

Staffordshire County Council has pledged to be net zero by 2050. It has already made strides, cutting its carbon emissions by 25 per cent through initiatives such as switching to run buildings on green energy and replacing streetlights with LED bulbs.

In addition, it has run an Air Aware campaign, encouraging schools and businesses to increase walking and cycling as greener transport methods and improve town centre air quality. The county council has also been planting thousands of trees on its business development sites and green spaces, which will also help mark the Queens?Green Canopy jubilee programme.

The carbon bubble will be transported to Stafford? Market Square using electric vehicles and will be blown up using generators which run on 100 per cent renewable materials.

Staffordshire County Council? Cabinet Member for Communities and Culture Victoria Wilson said:

?taffordshire creates about 5.8 million tonnes of carbon each year and the average resident produces about 5.3 tonnes a year.

?e all need to do our bit to make Staffordshire sustainable. A big part of that challenge is to help people to understand how their actions can really contribute to reducing our collective carbon footprint.

?mall changes such as walking and cycling more, reducing energy use, cutting waste and recycling more can make a big difference if we all work together.

?e hope the visual impact of the carbon bubble will help people to stop and think about climate change and our own personal responsibilities in tackling it.?
