  2. This article explains the advantages of getting a heat pump to save emissions in your household However, would it depend on how the electricity is generated? I don't know if it makes sense to burn natural gas to generate electricity, and then use said to heat my house.

  3. I've recently got into foraging and have learnt that there are a great many edible leaves, flowers, fruits and roots in my back garden and on the way to Lidl. I fifind this to be a fantastic alternative to bags of salad of unknown carbon footprint for both the leaves and the plastic packaging alone. Attached is a picture of Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata) which has particularly tasty leaves & flowers.
