Green Leaves

by Web Team

Do you worry about your carbon footprint? During the summer, I was sitting in an airport lounge. While waiting for the flight, I learned from a poster on the wall that the airport had planted over 2,000 trees on its grounds in a bid to offset its carbon footprint. The green leaves of trees are […]

Running The Race

by Web Team

My mobile phone is so clever that if I take it when I go running, it will record the exact path I took. I can even view this path overlaid on a map of Salford. Imagine if each of us recorded our movements in this way every day. By the end of the week, what […]
