On Wednesday, September 17, Katie and I and nine other households in the Cowichan Valley began meeting as the Cowichan Carbon Busters. Our mission — to reduce our household carbon footprint.
During the next 10 weeks we will follow the steps laid out by environmentalist Guy Dauncey to reduce our carbon footprints.
By the end of the course, we should all have in place a fairly extensive plan to reduce our carbon footprint during the next few years.
It will be easier for some of us than others, but for all it will be a learning experience.
Hopefully you can follow along and find some of the tips we learn useful in reducing your own footprint.
