I have, for the past while, been taking measures to make significant reductions to my carbon footprint.
The Latest part of this task is leaving my car at home and opting to travel to work by train….. I am pleased to report that it is working out really well. I’m now into week 4 and I can honestly say that I do prefer it!
It’s roughly a one mile walk from my house to the train station, and once I arrive over in Edinburgh, I can either walk another mile to my work, or jump onto the courtesy shuttle bus that is laid on by my place of work. So on miserable days like today I do take advantage of the bus, but when the weather is fair I walk it.
The return journey is much easier now, as I car share on the way home and get dropped off at my front foor, which is great.
Although I feel what I have done so far is great, there is the option to reduce it a wee bit further..
The kids now also get the bus to school instead of me dropping them off every monring, so they are doing their wee bit too :o)
