Can A House Shrink One Swedish Family’s Carbon Footprint?
We’re all looking for ways to reduce the size of our carbon footprint, but most of us don’t have a house that helps out with the task.
Watch this video about this unique opportunity for Swedish families to participate in the One Tonne Life Project (sic), a collaboration between an energy company, a house-builder and a car maker.
The project will determine if a typical Swedish family can cut their CO2 emissions from the average, about 7 tons a year to just one ton per year, according to Vattenfall’s Annika Ramskold.
One of sixty local families that have volunteered to live in the house for the six month trial will move in in January – they’ll be studied, and their emissions measured, all in the name of environmental science.
