What do you use?

OK, we aren't crazy about the eco-solution pictured here. But we do like grassroots solutions for bringing those big, seemingly abstract issues like energy use down to earth.
Big Frog Mountain is a renewable energy company located in our hometown, that specializes in solar tunnels and panels. Their site has energy-use calculators for determining your family's energy consumption and just how many solar panels you would need to get "off the grid."
Or, closer to our UK office: visit the British Petroleum website and check out their carbon footprint calculator.
Or ask Uncle Sam: use the EPA's Personal Greenhouse Gas calculator to determine what effect your energy use is having on the environment and to find out ways to cut back energy use.

especially carpet. Sometimes it's just about us. Updated when we've got something good to say.
