What’s your family’s carbon footprint?

Dec 9 • Featured • 712 Views • 2 Comments on What’s your family’s carbon footprint?

There’s an interesting article in today’s Times about the impact of larger families on the environment – sparked by the climate control debate in Copenhagen. They asked two families – one with three kids, one with six – to take part in a carbon footprint analysis. The results are interesting but perhaps not as conclusive as you might expect.

Our family isn’t particularly large, we recycle as much as possible, but we do fly quite a lot. So we are trying to think about our carbon footprint and do what we can to reduce it. If you want to find out yours then just click here – let me know how you get on!

    Well that has to be one positive about being a family with only one adult and one child – our carbon footprint has to be smaller than most – I’ll check it out though just to be sure.

    It takes a fair amount of time to go through the study, but the results are interesting I come way below average in all but travel – and I kind of went a bit wrong here – but if Icut down on the use of my air-con (I have it on all the time because the windows steam up otherwise!!) I’m doin OK – I think…
