A little while back I met Tom Savage at a event about social enterprise. Tom is behind Tiptheplanet which is a kind of editable ‘How To’ guide to being more sustainable. It strikes me as a genuinely useful use of a wiki — as Tom explains:
From little things, like cleaning your leather shoes with a banana skin â€“ (rub with the inside of the peel, then wipe and buff with a cloth), dusting down the coils at the back of the fridge (dusty coils can waste up to 30% extra electricity) or not having a screen saver (set your computer to sleep instead to save money and energy)â€¦ To those bigger issues, such as recycling (if 100,000 people who currently donâ€™t recycle began to do so, they could collectively reduce CO2 emissions by 42,000 tons a year) to turning off office lights at night (Lighting an average-size office overnight wastes enough energy to heat water for 1000 cups of tea), www.tiptheplanet.com has tips that can help individuals and organisations do their bit toward making the world a better, easier and cheaper-to-live in place!
Well worth a look.
