The challenges of a low-carbon family life
I'm trying hard to live a low-carbon life. One that’s inspirational to me, my wife, my four children and my community in Marlow.
My family's carbon footprint is smaller than most, but we don't claim to be perfect. We know we've still some way to go.
However, years spent reducing our carbon footprint have given me a rich experience of not only the technical and financial challenges involved, but also the social, emotional and personal ones.
My work is informed by what actually works for me and my family. Anything I recommend to others has been proven in the test bed of my own lifestyle – and people tell me my advice and insight is all the more realistic and relevant as a result.
