"If we cut the hours we work by 25% – or a day and a quarter each week – our carbon footprint would decline by 36.6%. By working less, we produce fewer goods and services [and] also consume less in the process of getting our job done... less carbon-intensive commuting, less energy-sucking office space, and less time on power-hungry computer systems. In addition, working less would help to break down the work-spend cycle. We are also less likely to rely on environmentally costly timesavers…there is some evidence that when people are given time off, they tend to gravitate towards low environmental impact activities... To ensure people choose activities with a low environmental impact, we need to provide an “infrastructure of conviviality”."
