Did you know that if you cook double portions when you prepare hot meals, you could reduce your carbon footprint by 140kg CO2 per year? Also with Valentines Day approaching fast, surely there’s never been a better time start doing so!
You can read more about this, and other ideas for saving energy and money, in the sample pages from ‘The Environment Equation: 100 Factors that can add to or subtract from your total carbon footprint’ by Alex Shimo-Barry, available at http://www.foe.co.uk.
Also another way to save money is through Local Exchange Trading Schemes which are community-based networks where people exchange goods and services for free, for example transport, DIY skills or equipment. To find out more simply visit http://letslinkuk.net/
