  • New eco-Awareness site from The Guardian

    Hello all,

    I'm doing some work for The Guardian on their new eco-awareness website, 'Tread Lightly'. I'd like to hear any comments you might have about the site, the pledging system or about the issues surrounding it

    Please post your comments here and feel free to be as brutally honest as you like

    Thanks in advance...

    About Tread lightly

    Do you want to live a more low-carbon lifestyle, but are unsure where to start?

    Tread lightly is a community of people committed to reducing their CO2 emissions through making weekly pledges and recording their actions against their pledges.

    This will enable people to step up their efforts to reduce their own CO2 emissions, and also to track the combined efforts of the community.

    How to get involved

    We are starting with an easy pledge - asking users to switch to energy-efficient lightbulbs. You can choose your level of commitment for each pledge - light, medium or heavy user.

    Each week, on a Friday, there will be a new pledge, such as turning appliances off standby, washing clothes at a lower temperature or using the car less frequently. You can also suggest pledges you think the community should make on our blog.
