Here are the 10 'top' things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint.

This list has been compiled by the BBC reporting on a Leeds University study into how much carbon we emit.

Not all have the same impact, though.

The top 10, and how many tonnes of carbon you'd save per year from each one, are:

- Live car free (2.04 tonnes)

- Drive and electric car (1.95 tonnes)

- Refurbish your home (0.895 tonnes)

- Eat a vegan diet (0.8 tonnes)

- Reduce your annual long-haul flight by one (1.68 tonnes)

- Choose renewable energy (1.6 tonnes)

- Use a heat pump (0.795 tonnes)

- Use more energy efficient cooking equipment (0.65 tonnes)

- Use public transport (0.98 tonnes)

- Heat your home renewably (0.64 tonnes)

Apart from choosing renewable energy with Pure Planet, how many are you doing? And which ones would you consider trying?

Living Car / Plane free.

Eating vegan, around 98% now
Good work @Bev
I'm on 3.5
Got renewables, drive an EV (though not much these days!) and have reduced long haul flights.
I'm not a vegan though, sort of vegan-ish.

Each to their own @woz
I agree with you btw, but some people can't seem to get enough of it, the animals 😂😉
