Reducing my carbon footprint .. a small step but a definite one !!

I was amazed to hear from my system admin that in the past three weeks since I had installed a energy saving/management program on my desktop machine which was working from 9 to 5.30 pm daily for 6 days, my energy consumption on the PC had dropped by 40%. 

Even more interesting, my carbon footprint had been reduced by 4.9 kgs of Carbon dioxide, ie. by using the energy saving program on my PC I had put 4.9 kgs less of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere..

Now I am looking at other ways to reduce my Carbon footprint, like giving my car for service ( not serviced for the past six months..)

The opportunities are unlimited..! Only thing is I need to find them and slowly start executing them.
