Your Carbon Footprint

How much do you know about your carbon footprint? Do you know how much you are contributing to climate change?

Whether we’re talking about individuals or large corporations, everyone has a carbon footprint.

What’s that? A carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other carbon compounds emitted due to the consumption of fossil fuels by a particular person or group. The consumption of all those fossil fuels results in greenhouse gasses that end up being expressed as CO2.

The Good News

Greenhouse emissions are increasing at alarming levels, but there’s still an upside. We can now MEASURE our individual carbon footprints and control how much of an impact we have on the planet.

We Can All Do Better

Green Resources is on a mission—not only to do better OURSELVES every day—but also to help others recognize how much of an impact they can make simply by doing one or two things just a little bit differently.

Calculate your carbon footprint now and learn how you can make small changes that will have a huge impact on the environment.

The calculator will let you know where you stand when it comes to greenhouse emissions. From there, you can make a strategic plan to offset your carbon footprint and begin repairing the earth for future generations.

Fun Fact

There are lots of things you can do to offset your carbon footprint, and the good news is that they are easy to do and deliver a lot of impact:

  • Pick a day to ride your bike or walk to a destination.

  • Carpool with co-workers if you need to commute.

  • Line-dry a few loads of clothes every week.

  • Shop and buy local when you can. (This lowers emissions from transportation costs.)

  • Buy sustainable fashion & learn to love thrifting.

  • Keep re-usable bags handy.

  • Turn off lights and electronic devices when not in use.

The list goes on and on! There are hundreds of ways each of us can make a difference, and the best part is that you don’t have to do EVERYTHING. When everyone pitches in and adds their individual contribution, we can make a major impact on our planet—today and for future generations.
