It's... Energy Awareness Week!

After shamefully letting Green Blog Day pass me by last Monday, I'm determined to try to keep abreast of all these days, weeks, millenia etc of environmental action.

Well, this week, starting tomorrow, is the Energy Savings Trust's Energy Awareness Week - with themed days throughout. Good stuff, although I'm a little baffled about the difference between Women's Day and Men's Day - do the sexes have wildly different carbon footprints?

And, I know, I'll get flamed for this, but I still think is worth offsetting the rest!

Update 22/10/07: I've managed to penetrate a bit further into the EAW site and found the list of what's happening on the different days of this week. Women's day is being sponsored by Cafe Direct and involves Women's Institute coffee mornings, and Men's day is 'gadget day' sponsored by Curry's. Now I'm not the most PC of people, but is that not outdated stereotyping? Most young women I see on the bus/train have their iPod Nano in one hand and ultra-high-spec phone in the other. I've been told men drink coffee too...
