The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “How to reduce your carbon footprint…without being a martyr” – below is their description.

The pollution we produce is referred to as a carbon footprint – the amount of emissions an individual or company is responsible for.

Generally, this footprint encompasses your direct energy consumption – such as through power used in the home, or fuel to drive a car; and indirect consumption, for example through the energy used to create items we buy and use, such as clothing.

You may have heard about making drastic changes, such as cutting out flights completely, but we don’t have to give these things up entirely to have a big impact on our consumption.

Some of the common and effective changes we can make include flying less often, and using less petrol and diesel. In developed countries, transport like this contributes a lot to your carbon footprint.

Watch the video in full above to find out more about how you can reduce your carbon footprint.
