More than a century on this amazing planet we call Earth. How much has she suffered due to my ignorance, unconstrained desires and consequent consumption. Time for a new chapter. Time to really make a difference!

Below is the first entry of the log of my efforts to live an environmentally friendly life while trying to reduce my carbon footprint. Feel free to drop any constructive suggestions in the comment section below! 🙂 M

  • Turned my car off at the traffic light near work  Not the first time that I’ve sdone that … I always do so while stopped at train level crossings … but I will turn the engine off whenever I can now and in particular when stopped at those lights that I am well acquainted with. I wonder what actual amount of fuel is saved and what the reduction in emissions would amount to?

Update: After reading this articles about Start-Stop Technology I’m going to have to check with my mechanic as my car’s almost 10 years old. I’ve got a feeling this one is not currently for me! 😦

Multiple engine starts in a short amount of time would put a lot of stress on conventional starter motors, to the point of destroying them prematurely –
