    Hi sahandL,

    Idk what exam board or how many marks your questions are worth, but I'll try my best helping you with the second question, which I assume is a 6 marker.

    2) Governmments help to reduce resource consumption by recycling. They set recycling targets to local areas. For example, in Wales, the welsh government had a recycling rate of 70% in 2012 to 2013, and have been set a target to rise it to 80% by 2024 to 2025. Another way is through offering 'Green Deals' by conservation. This means improving insulation in houses, which reduces energy consumption as more heat is trapped in the house. For example, the 100% grants. This is available to low income households or those who live in an area with high fuel poverty. The cost of energy used accounts for more than 10% of household's income. The final method is by education. The UK authorities encourage schools to recycle. For example, in Ealing (West London) 240L wheelie bins are emptied weekly for free. Also there are free collection services for compost bins for fruits, vegetable peelings and garden waste.

    Idk which case study you did, but this was mine.
    You basically put in a few statistics and mention 3 methods which governments do.
