"BRITAIN’S festive high streets are radiating far more than just goodwill: a study has found that many of the nation’s largest — and supposedly greenest — retailers are pouring heat and greenhouse gases into the environment by keeping their doors open all through winter."

City of Westminster Councillor supports campaign

I thoroughly encourage the aims of the Close the Door campaign. By closing the door when the heating/air con switch goes on, or when levels of air pollution on the street outside are high, shops and restaurants save significant energy and money, reduce their own emissions and greatly enhance the health and well being of the people working in and visiting them. It improves conditions for the community in which they serve. Westminster is a world showcase and our shops could benefit greatly from adopting this as common policy. Cllr Frixos Tombolis, Ward: West End

Worcester Close the Door starts

"I was shocked to learn that closing shop doors in winter reduces energy usage and carbon emissions by up to 50%. Indeed, it is incredibly frustrating that so much energy has been wasted simply by leaving doors open. I am impressed by the Close the Door campaign, which has encouraged many people to take and support such a common-sense way of saving energy and money. I hope that many others will join the campaign" Neil Laurenson, St Stephens Ward.
