Southampton the UK's greenest city according to survey

Daily Echo: City the UK's greenest City the UK's greenest

HOMEOWNERS in Southampton are the UK’s greenest according to a survey.

The study which was commissioned by Planitherm Glass revealed that more than three quarters of Southampton residents (just under 80 per cent) are consciously looking to save energy and lower bills. This is 40 per cent higher than Brighton – the second highest scoring city.

The study, which surveyed 2,000 people in Southampton, also revealed that homeowners in the city spend an average of more than £8,000 personalising their houses.

Residential market manager at Planitherm, Craig Dodsworth said: “There are many aspects that go into creating a real home and although it may feel that we all have a seemingly never-ending to do list for the things we hope to improve, homeowners in Southampton are telling us that green is the way to go.”

Nice bit of advertising for the country's biggest manufacturer of doubleglazing.

More pointless articles blowing Southampton's imaginary trumpet. Southampton excels at nothing except disappointment, misery, underachievement and all-round dirtiness.

The green is probably mould from all the dirt left by the council cleaning department when they are sat in their vans drinking tea!
