    Hey, When will you post the results from your carbon footprint about what was used while you were away – and if it was more or less than when you’re at home, taking into account the flights.
    Are you all more conscious of it now that you are home? Have you made improvements in your home life to reduce the amount of travelling that you do to compensate for those long haul flights by using the car less to commute to and from work?
