Revealed: The UK's 10 most eco-conscious regions

Words by Amy Packham

Ahead of Earth Day 2023, a survey has revealed the UK's most eco-conscious region.

Tell me more.

The UK’s leading digital raffle operator Raffolux shares that Carlisle is the UK’s most eco-conscious region. They found this by assessing which regions were most likely keen to get an electric car.

With data predicting that more than a quarter of all new UK car registrations in 2023 will be for electric vehicles, Raffolux found that demand for electric cars is high across all regions of the UK.

Their survey showed Leeds, Hull and Gloucester are amongst the UK’s top 10 most eco-conscious regions with residents there most keen to acquire an electric car.

So what was the top 10?

"This year we look forward to creating thousands of more winners and we will be working closely with our partners so that we can carry on offering some of the most exciting sustainable prizes available.”
