What did you do this week to reduce your carbon footprint?
I'm one of those terrible suburbanites. You know, the sort of people who live outside the "ring" around a city, drive in, work, then drive home. How far? 18.5 miles each way.
This week, though, I didn't drive to work once. How did I work that out?
Drop below the copulating treble clefs to find out.
Monday, I had a meeting near the house, so I went to it, then worked the rest of the day from home.
Tuesday, my son had a doctor's appointment in the morning, I had a dentist's appointment in the afternoon, followed by a wine tasting, so again, worked from home.
Wednesday, I rode this to work:
Out of the 18.5 miles, I spent less than 1/2 a mile on a street, other than the streets of my own neighborhood. The rest were on a rails-to-trails bike path all the way downtown, then cultural trails to within 2 blocks of my building.
Thursday, a deposition near the house, worked from home the rest of the day.
How about you?
