Answer these questions as truthfully as possible……. I always turn off the lights when leaving a room I never get a lift if I could walk/cycle I turn the TV off every time I leave the room – even if I am only going for 15 minutes I never leave my laptop/PC/Console on when I am eating a meal somewhere else.

You may remember the Joneses, who eventually decided to go on a holiday to the West Indies. In order to save the planet, they now want their holiday to be “Carbon Neutral” by saving money and changing their lifestyle. They have produced some ideas that will save money and carbon, but will mean a sacrifice of their own comfort.
The first task is to decide how the Joneses will get to their Summer Holiday in the “Wonderful West Indies” Decide how they are going to get to the airport, which flight they take and hotel they stay in. Add the excursions and you have your first cash and carbon “cost”
Each family member is willing to cut out one or two things that they enjoy. Use this list to help them decide what to sacrifice, for the benefit of the holiday and the planet. To start off, investigate the carbon savings and cash savings of each sacrifice, and choose the “best” option Remember, you are saving both cash and carbon!
