Action

When buying new things, avoid large volumes of metal or plastic whenever possible as they will be high in embedded CO2e. 

Computers and household tools come into this. Question the sheer weight of things and try to buy second hand, refurbished or get stuff free via www.freecycle.org. Consider sharing your garden tools with a neighbour or setting up a community tool shed.

It is difficult to quantify the carbon savings of some Actions. In this case we allocate a nominal amount of 10kg CO2e per year. This is not representative of the actual potential savings but to show that you are making a difference.
