My contribution to the destruction of the planet was 2.88 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere on my recent trip. If I am correct I need to plant 3 trees to offset this!!!
Well we saved a tree the other day, could have cut it down but didn't. Planted an orange tree, which is Helen's, but I bought it for her birthday. Do potatoes count? What about onions?
Solar panels and rain water in my cisterns must also be a contribution. Eating my own eggs and saving on packaging is good. Recycling all our plastics and stuff like that is helpful. Taking boxes to the supermarket rather than plastic bags.
Using dead wood for heating purposes, urinating in the bushes must also be of some good.
I don't know if there is a lot more I can do, what about wind power?
What scuppers me is the flights and travel, if everyone lived as I do we would need 4.31 planets for it to be sustainable!!!!!!
