So, I've finally given in to the horror that is car ownership. For people that are bothered about such things, it's a Y-reg Ford Focus, 73k miles, and more importantly is coloured green.

I filled it up with petrol and felt pretty horrible about the fact that I am burning a substance that took millions of years to come into existence, so can anyone recommend a good site where I can fund the planting of trees or other projects to try and get some carbon footprint neutrality?

Daria: yes, I realise these projects can be viewed by some as a way of saying 'we can party as much as we want and do whatever we want' but I think that it's a good idea overall to try and keep a low carbon profile in whatever ways you can, then use projects like tree planting to balance whatever you can't avoid. I find it interesting that the Highway Code now contains information about economical driving, and my driving instructor has to inform me of these things too.
