I do try to be green...however. part two

Tag continued.
3. Are you at peace with, or do you feel guilty about 2 (having a car and a dishwasher).

NO. I drive a diesel, and I do try to combine my trips out with places or people that I need to visit or want to see. The dishwasher, it is a fact that use can use more water washing up dishes by hand.

4. What are you willing to change but feel unable to/stuck with/unsure how to go about it?

If I had money I would have underground pipes in the garden to heat the house and solar panels, sadly I don't have any spare cash.

5. Do you know your carbon footprint for your home? If so, is it larger/smaller than your national average? do I answer this one...must do some research...In February we had the roof re slated.....the loft is totally open to the elements all around three sides. So I guess we are heating up the sky..although we do not have any heating upstairs.

Back later to answer more revoir.......
Talking of footprints here is my dogs paw smashing a puddle. Footprint in French is empreinte.

I like the photo.

I've got no idea what our carbon footprint is. We just muddle along trying to do the 'right thing' - I've gone off plane travel which is a good thing I suppose. Having said that if someone gave me tickets to fly to New York for a week, I'd go like a shot :)

How did you manage to get that shot?! Or does your dog pose when told to?
