    I can be an example in my personal life
    What do I do?

    Mostly it's what I don't do. I don't consume. I try to limit my travel by car or air, re use older house, I monitor what our trash output is and our utility bills are.

    I eat lots of meat that comes from a carbon free source with little off gassing. I like to say my meat uses less carbon than tofu.

    We garden, a lot, and our seeds come from old vegetables.

    We dry all laundry outside in the sun, yes it still works in the winter.

    We live near a school the kids walk to.

    We live as close as we can to our work.

    The manure from the chickens that lay the eggs fertilizes the garden, and the old chickens become soup.


    How big is your personal carbon footprint?
