For the last six months I've been turning my attention to ways in which I can both reduce my (negative) impact on the environment and help others to do the same. I have no wish to preach to other people and my journey to date has shown me that being environmentally responsible is hard. Embracing the idea is easy - doing something about it isn't.
If you are interested in ways each of us can make incremental changes in our day to day activities and would like to share good ideas then please comment. If you know of user groups and other communities that share this goal then again please share their details via comments.
