To reduce your carbon footprint, think about the foods you eat: Stick to seasonal fruit and vegetables - they will need less watering and artificial heat to grow - and focus on local produce that doesn't require much air travel and cut down on products such as meat that require a lot of water and release a large amount of greenhouse gases in the production process.
Travelling is great, but between the transportation, the accommodation, the food on the road, all the energy spent on organised tours and on luxury we don't give ourselves at home... our dreams can be potentially damaging the environment.
