    Our local council does a pretty good job of making recycling easy

    How does improving your home's (or office's) energy efficiency help you better live out your values?

    We recently replaced all of our windows at home when we built an extension. What I didnt understand was why they all have to have trickle vents on them. Seems to me that they defeat the energy efficiency improvement by letting in a significant amount of cool air. Apparently it is to do with health..... see link

    Electricity Generation Choose Renewable Energy or Purchase Renewable Energy Credits
    Your utility company is able to tell you your average energy usage. Ask them how your energy usage compares to others in your ZIP code, region, and/or state. What other steps can you take each day to reduce your electricity usage?

    I have used various small renewable electricity suppliers for years now. Want to work out how to get a renewable (anaerobic digestion etc) gas supply - I believe it is becoming more of available now. e.g:-
    https://www.ecotricity.co.uk/our-green-energy/our-green-gas/what-is-green-gas

    https://www.greenenergyuk.com/

    Current supplier offsets the carbon from the fossil gas that we use.

    Traffic is a nightmare on Bangalore roads, adding innumerable hours spent in commuting to and from work. The public transport network, unfortunately, does not cover all parts of the city and people have to depend on self or others' vehicles to get to a point from where they can avail public transport. I have been offering rides to working professionals on my route for close to 6 months now. My trip report indicates that this has helped reduce 893 kg of CO2 over ~2300 miles. This removes about 3 private/personal vehicles from Bangalore roads daily.

    What was your process like for restructuring your trip? How can you avoid more air travel in the future?

    We decided to drive to France for a holiday instead of flying. Once we worked out that it would only take us 4 hours longer to drive,  give us much more flexibility and allow us to take more kit it was an easy decision to make.
