The 10:10 campaign to reduce carbon emissions

age-of-stupid-3The 10:10 campaign has been initiated by Franny Armstrong’s team to complement the documentary on global warming, “The Age of Stupid” enabling each one of us to take action in our lives to reduce our emissions.

As the 10:10 website points out, the idea of the campaign is “By committing to cut your emissions by 10% in 2010, you will join thousands of individuals, schools, hospitals, businesses and organisations all actively helping to combat climate change by making simple changes to their lifestyles, homes and workplaces.” 

Logo-for-1010-campaign-004The website provides a convenient 10 step family checklist which can be downloaded. Ideas are also provided for companies, schools and colleges, and other organisations. These 10 steps are:

 

 

1.    Fly less
2.    Save 10% on heating (which would translate to airconditioning for warmer climates)
3.    Save 10% on electricity
4.    Drive less
5.    Eat better
6.    Buy good stuff
7.    Dump less
8.    Don’t waste food
9.    …or water
10.  Feel happier

For more information, read about Franny’s reasons behind the campaign here.

Eco WALK the Talk will take each of these points in the forthcoming blogposts and show you how these steps can be taken.

The ideas are from the free e-book which is available on this website called, “A Quicklist of 1001 Steps to Save the Planet”
