  1. This article explains the advantages of getting a heat pump to save emissions in your household However, would it depend on how the electricity is generated? I don't know if it makes sense to burn natural gas to generate electricity, and then use said to heat my house. Wouldn't it be more efficient to just heat my household directly using natural gas in a boiler?
  2. Good news for EU! 😍 White or electrical goods such as fridges and televisions in the European Union must be able to be repaired for up to a decade under new rules that came into force on Monday. Why is this Important? Products should last longer, and therefore when broken, they should be repaired. This requires products to be designed for repair as well as support for repairers of all kinds. What is the impact? How Can I Help? Join the movement: https://repair.eu/ Check repair guides for your appliances: https://www.ifixit.com/
  3. In 2017, the UK emitted 451 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent to the environment, 40% of which came from the residential sector. This means that on average, a household emits around 7 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per year. In order to achieve the UK reduction goals, each household needs to reduce by 3.6 tCO2eq their net emissions. This can be achieved by implementing different alternatives which target the reduction of energy consumption in a household. Today we present two alternatives that can help households reduce emissions and costs Double glazing an
  4. The emergency of climate change and global warming is forcing a drastic reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases produce by human activities. One way of reducing the concentration of CO2 is to store it in any medium other than the atmosphere. Due to this climate crisis, new innovative solutions to capture carbon have recently emerged, but unfortunately, these technologies are not economically feasible and are not easily deployed globally at large scale. Afforestation, the activity of creating new forests where there were none before has been studied as one of the most effec
  5. By Clémentine Pons The current agricultural system is not sustainable either to ensure a healthy planet or global food security and health. The UN Food Agricultural Organisation estimates that globally, 1/3 of food produced goes to waste. In the US, 40 percent of their food supply goes to waste every year, it is similar to buying five bags from the grocery store and leaving two of them in the parking lot every time you shop. Food waste is much more difficult to solve than food losses. Food that is lost during the harvest period can be reduced thanks to investment and budget, fo
  6. While there is a prominent potential for using reforestation, agroforestry and afforestation as mitigation tools, several important factors need to be considered. Forests are complex ecosystems and adapted to the land they grow on. In contrast, their management is often simple and counterproductive, handled by economic systems and bureaucrats. Successful forest restoration requires much greater involvement and care. If badly managed, reforestation can result in outright environment consequences. From there, two situations must be considered: deforestation has to stop, and restoration program s
