My initial aim with this blog is to show how it is possible to reduce your carbon footprint. I have called it a quest because I don’t imagine it will all be smooth sailing but I’m determined to get my carbon footprint down to ZERO, in effect making me carbon neutral.
So what is my current footprint?
Well, using the calculator on the direct.gov.uk website I have come up with the following:
The rough breakdown according to this calculator is:
- Heating = 3.36 tonnes
- Hot Water = 1.34 tonnes
- Lighting = 0.25 tonnes
- Kitchen = 0.57 tonnes
- Entertainment = 0.42 tones
- Study = 0.26 tonnes
- Other = 1.42 tonnes
- Flights = 0.36 tonnes
- Public Transport = 0.07 tones
