Singletons beware

Certain segments of the green population don't want you to live alone.
People living on their own consume more energy and create more waste than individuals sharing a home which could cause an environmental crisis in the near future, according to a report published in the journal "Environment, development and sustainability".


The report says that more should be done by the government to encourage people to live more space-efficiently.

For example, an occupancy tax could be introduced which would be charged based on the number of people and habitable rooms in the property to encourage people to live in a more space efficient way. A relocation package could be introduced to encourage lower-income households to move into smaller properties.
