Residents in the north-east are becoming increasingly conscious of sustainable cheap energy, a new survey reveals.
According to the first regional Energy Saving Trust Green Barometer launched at Gateshead's Baltic Centre, twice as many people living in the north-east say they are living environmentally-friendly lifestyles compared to a year ago.
The study reveals that Northumberland is the north-east's capital of green living, with almost three-quarters (71 per cent) of respondents resident in the area saying "most things or everything I do is environmentally-friendly".
County Durham came in second place with 63 per cent of eco-friendly residents, followed by North Tyneside with 59 per cent.
The least environmentally-friendly place in the north-east was Newcastle with one in five (21 per cent) of respondents claiming to lead green lifestyles, followed by Sunderland and Gateshead with 25 per cent.
Regionally, one in ten (nine per cent) people questioned admitted that they are not doing their bit to protect the environment, while 13 per cent conceded that they are not interested.
