Counting on …day 224

25th June 2022

I recently stopped from a paper newspaper to a digital one on the basis that it has a lower carbon footprint. But what it also does is to remove trade from the local newsagents. Should I spend what I save on the digital newspaper at the local newsagents? I am not sure what else  I would want there. Might I with good conscience spend the saving on a coffee at my local café instead? 

As we all switch to a greener lifestyle there are going to be changes that affect people’s livelihoods – what about petrol station attendants? There needs to be an onus on to look for ways  we can support local green businesses.
