New tool helps you cut your carbon tyre-print

The car guide in action

Our low carbon lunch

 

The moment of truth

“So I’d like you to cook a low-carbon lunch for the office and write about it for the website”.

My heart sank. My skills in the kitchen barely extend beyond beans on toast and macaroni cheese at the best of times, without giving too much thought to food miles or the efficiency of my oven. Here I was, five weeks into my internship, faced with the prospect of my culinary inadequacies being on show for all to see. It didn't feel good.

Bestival loves 10:10

The main stage at Bestival

As mood-boosters go, it's hard to beat giving out free things to nice people. Throw loud music, fancy dress and a giant wicker dragon in the mix, and you can kiss the late summer blues goodbye.

I'm backstage at Bestival 2010; Simian Mobile Disco's set is unfolding a few metres away, and I've spent the day with Bestival's unstoppable green team giving free solar and bike phone charging to the nicest bunch of music lovers you could ever hope to meet. It could be worse.

What future for NHS carbon cuts?

The recent white paper: ‘Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS’ uses a set of themes to outline a clear strategy for the development of the NHS over the next parliamentary term and beyond.

These themes are:

Driving down emissions from car travel

Car-sharing and other green driving alternatives help to avoid congestion

Many of us have become so dependent on our cars they are often in every day use.  Living in a city I am fortunate in that I can cycle for most of my journeys. 

The one step that made a big difference to reducing our car use was keeping monthly and subsequently weekly records of our mileage (along with our utilities).  Although a simple exercise, the impact of gathering this data (combined with our 10:10 pledge) has been immense.
