The Antrim Councillor said: “This report provides us with shocking details about the UK’s over-use of natural resources.
“People should be looking into more ways of helping protect the environment.
“A government scheme to help people convert to using green energy systems in their homes was recently introduced. I would strongly encourage people to apply for this funding, as such systems can make a real difference.
“I would also encourage everyone to recycle as much household waste as they can. Everyone can make an impact in helping the environment and it takes only small changes in people’s lifestyles to do so.”
