In the case of carbon dioxide and their savings (CO2):—Use a wind-
Alarm clock instead of electric alarm clock: 48 grams of carbon dioxide per day-
Dry clothes on the washing line instead of in the tumble dryer: 2. 3 kg each load. —
Pack a lighter suitcase.

Commute 8 km: 1 per day, by train instead of by car. 7 kg CO2 a day. —
On average, British households can reduce carbon dioxide by 2 tons per year through more efficient insulation, heating and lighting.
Reduce heating in winter: reducing the temperature by several degrees can save 6% of the energy cost. —
Avoid \"carbon emissions\": a return flight across the Atlantic is equivalent to driving a car for each passenger for one year. —
