We take pleaure in buying most of our needs locally; using Fairtrade
and organic products when we can. We recycle as much as we can and we
don't feel deprived of many material goodies.
If we are honest, there are times in the darkest, chilliest days of winter
when we would love to jet off to somewhere warm and sunny, and when we
do give in to such temptations, we offset the carbon from our air travel
by planting trees (there are organisations who can arrange this for you).
Not everyone wants to make
the kind of changes we have been making, but 'every little helps'
- to steal a phrase from the carbon obese world of the supermarkets. So
start from where you are and see what you can do to make a difference
to your footprint.
We can offer coaching and advice for both domestic and commercial situations.
