This story is just one example of progress towards a low-carbon world, and we're collecting more as part of our #itshappening project. See the rest here.
Getting a woodburner has definitely been the loveliest carbon reducing measure we’ve taken.
Not only has it saved us around two tonnes of CO2 and £200 a year, but it’s also made our living room the toastiest ever, and we get the pleasure of watching the flames flicker. Gorgeous!
Back in February when my partner and I decided to take the plunge and splash out £6,500 (gulp) on getting solar panels installed we knew it would save us money and help cut our carbon. What we didn't expect was how enjoyable we'd find owning a solar setup.
Calling all python developers with good front end skills and an urge to use their abilities to help fight climate change!
10:10 are looking for two tech-types to join us. We're after an experienced freelancer to take on the technical development for the national rollout of Solar Schools, and a good all-rounder with strong python skils as a permanent lead developer. They'll take charge of 10:10's technical systems and push the development of our new website and online tools forward.
Both posts will be based in our relaxed Camden offices, working closely with our campaigning team to build websites and tools to help people cut carbon, create empowered communities and put on the political pressure needed to stop climate change.

Mmm, cookies. Choc chip, hazelnut, oaty, what's not to like? Sadly, this isn't about the yummy sort of cookies, but the computer kind.
A Europe-wide regulation has just come into force (Regulation 6 of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Act, for those who like to know such things). It's aimed at preserving people's privacy online, and it affects the way websites use "cookies". It's given us a prompt to tell you about how 10:10 uses them.
The way the food we eat is grown, packaged and transported makes it a major source of carbon emissions - around 20% of the UK total according to Defra.
That makes growing your own a great low carbon activity that should pare a few kilos off your yearly emissions too. Late spring is an excellent time to start raising veg, even if you've never tried it before.
