Working From Home – Save the Planet, Save Yourself

Enviropundit brings up telecommuting as the ideal environmental choice? The cost savings are obvious, and Varifrank mentions that out desire to “go to work” is largely a socially ingrained concept we’re just no ised to shrugging off.
From personal experience, I have to admit, working from home can also drive you nuts unless you are extremely well disciplined. For me, the ideal compromise both personally and environmentl is to walk to a nearby office a few days a week.

  1. Eh, I wouldn’t say it’s the IDEAL choice, but it is a choice that can help. Most people won’t be able to do it, and entire industries won’t be able to do it, but I do know several people that work from home successfully. Yes, those people are highly disciplined.
    I like the idea of being able to walk to work too.
