It’s 10.10.10 and the focus is on carbon emissions and the practical ways we can reduce them.
The idea behind the 10.10 Global Day of Doing is to get organisations and individuals to commit to making measurable changes to reduce their carbon footprint. Each person that signs up commits to reducing their own emissions by 10% a year.
Over 100,000 people in 152 countries have signed up including some high profile faces such as actress Sienna Miller and designer Vivian Westwood.
Some suggestions on how to accomplish this include planning family menus before shopping to avoid food going to waste, choosing walking over driving and eating better quality meat but less of it.
The clothesline represents a very practical, easy way to make cuts and it even saves you money. You produce an average of 1kg of carbon each time you use your dryer, natural drying produces none.
10.10 provides an excellent opportunity to spend a day thinking about our lifestyle choices and committing to make small adjustments where we can. We will be looking at our offices, the way we go about our work and the things we can do as a team to contribute. We will of course continue to hang our threads out to dry and spread the word on clotheslines.
