East Sussex businesses are snapping up FREE places (worth up to £500) at BETRE Spring 2010 training events, which help cut business utility costs and improve environmental performance.
"The BETRE course inspired us to make huge changes to the way we ran our business. Not only did we learn about our carbon footprint, we were able to reduce it with some very easy changes and we saved money each year. We got a lot of support from the team with suggestions and contacts. I would recommend anyone who wants to be more sustainable and save money to go on one of the courses" Kate Mylrea, Manor Farm Oast, an award-winning B&B.
