My trip to greener pastures?

Hi. This is my first attempt at blogging. It will chart my trials and tribulations as a householder trying to reduce energy use and carbon footprint. Initially, I will focus on my home before examining my travel and consumption impacts. I’m interested in hearing from those with similar interests or experiences, those in related businesses or professions and those who think I’m mad to take this trip.

    • Thanks for your question. I don’t know the answer I’m afraid – do you know if anyone else has tried to work it out? I suspect it’s dwarfed by the heat leaking out of my floors, walls and roof ……

  1. Hi Andy,

    Little by little we are trying to make the journey too… We have an electricity use monitor and actively shut down things we don’t need.

    The biggest difference is not using the toaster!! However, we are converting all our lights to LED… Expensive, but downlighters use 5w instead of 50w each!

  2. Good luck with the journey. I am doing a home energy survey with the kids, ( bit of extra homework).Thought it would be a good way to get them to understand why I keep asking them to turn the lights off around the place.
