My work is 10 miles away. A river flows from my house to work almost perfect. Would I reduce my carbon footprint by taking a canoe to work?

    How are you going to get you and your canoe home?

    Yes, because you're not using any fossil fuels.

    Your trip back home would be a biotch. I digress, but my dad once asked my uncle, where does this river flow and my Uncle Bob (We should have called him Uncle Obvious) said it flows down stream. Later that day we were on a long road trip and my dad asked Uncle Obvious when we'd reach Idaho and he said without missing a beat, when we reach the border we'll be almost there. Sadly, that is a true story.

    Would make the winter commute a *****, but yes, why not.

    Make sure your work has a canoe rack to lock it up.

    Just swim it instead. You’d have to start your work day soaking wet, but that’s the trade-off.

    Yes, and you would also build up your chest and arm muscles, losing excess fat in the process.

    Reduce it from what? Walking would be best. Your canoe is made with petroleum products.

      That would be golden! The less seals eating our fish means more for us and less cows (high carbon footprint) being raised to eat.
