The technology we have at our fingertips can allow us to meet “face-to-face” without ever having to jump on a plane or drive. Video conferencing interfaces – like Skype or Google Hangout – can not only make telecommuters feel less isolated, but save millions of tons of metric CO2 each year.
If everyone in your office replaced one in-person meeting per year with a videoconference, imagine what that would do for your office’s carbon footprint.
Pick a meeting in which you or a co-worker would have to travel, including a drive.
Set up a video conference and avoid the travel.
Let your friends and colleagues know you've done & hit the "I've Done This" button.
It's like Skyping with an old friend, you know, if your old friend wanted to show you a Powerpoint.
