Brent Council is encouraging residents to make a green resolution for the new year.
The town hall is asking residents to make a pledge by wearing clothes for longer, making short trips by foot or cutting down on gas and electric bills.
Cllr Krupa Sheth, Brent Council’s environment chief, said: "Lots of these green new year resolutions are not only better for the planet, they're also better for people's health and their pockets.”
She added: "2020 showed how global events can have local consequences. Climate change will be no different unless we act now.
"If you're looking to make a change this January, please consider making it a #GreenNewYear."
