This will be a two part online workshop about how we can measure and reduce our carbon emissions. In Part I, Catherine Lowther will present information about how to measure our emissions from using oil, propane and electricity in our homes, from driving and flying, and in our dietary choices. Then you can use this information to do your carbon inventory. In Part II, we will share our inventory results and our plans for how to reduce our emissions and become carbon neutral.
