My home with the 5 of us here is 2.27 tonnes which seems to be pretty good.
Appliances 3.26 tonnes (too many computers).
Travel 13.94 tonnes (I travel a lot for work and so put in 4 short haul and 1 long haul flight a year which adds about 3 tonnes)

Home 2.34
Appliances 1.34
Travel 2.26
There are two adults and two children under school age in our household. We have three cars(one for me,one for hubby,one work car). I try and dry washing outside as much as possible and we use energy saving light-bulbs but we do use televisions etc alot.

I'm not owning up to mine! Home and appliances weren't bad but the travel was HUGE. We have two powerful cars that drink petrol but I am looking into off setting the CO2 from them so I can feel less guilty. Anyone know a good company to do it through?

ours wasnt too bad 2.75 tonnes in home ....4 of us.
our cars are fuel efficient too and we ensure we turn all appliances etc off at the maines. Things like food/ drink and holidays we are guilty of though, but isnt everyone!
