Carbon footprints (5.18)

How can we help the environment by changing the way we shop, travel and use energy? Do you recycle, use public transport and energy saving light-bulbs?

As part of National Science Week, Jackie Dalton looks at the idea of 'carbon footprints'. A 'carbon footprint' is a measure of how much harm we cause to the environment in our everyday lives.

The average carbon footprint per person in the United Kingdom each year is a huge 10,000kg! What can we do about this?

We also look at some helpful expressions we can use when talking about the environment.
