I’m writing a short piece on the environmental benefits of a shorter work week. There’s lots of stuff out there on the social benefits (more time for family, better health, etc.) and the economic benefits (higher productivity, higher employment), but very little on the environmental benefits.

If anybody out there has thoughts on the matter, or knows of businesses or communities experimenting with a shorter work week, share in comments or contact me directly.
