Last week we looked at the emissions we produce on island (our scope 1 emissions) and the role of our natural environment in soaking up (we call this carbon sequestration) some of these emissions in Jersey.

This week we are going to explore the everyday choices we make that result in greenhouse gas emissions in other parts of the world. This includes things like international travel and the carbon produced to make the things we buy.

To reduce our scope 3 emissions we need to make different choices, buying less (and less often), buying locally wherever possible and buying things that can be fixed, adapted and recycled locally.

But do you think we really need to worry about the emissions we create that don't have a direct impact on our lives?
