carbon footprint

Most consumers do not realize that in their every day lives they actually create or contribute to the creation of a lot of [tag]green house gases[/tag], specifically carbon dioxide, so understanding your carbon footprint is an excellent way to begin making more environmentally sound decisions that in the long run when combined with other peoples efforts will make real change.

Understanding your [tag]carbon footprint[/tag] is a pretty complex issue, one best left to the academics. However thanks to the wonders of the Internet we can use various websites and on line tools to get a pretty good approximation of our carbon footprint, both on the individual and household levels. The best place to start research on your carbon footprint is a good Google search when you have a little extra time on your hands.

Depending on the website or tool that you use for determining your carbon foot print you will need to input information like what make and model of car do you drive, how far do you drive, do you own or rent your home, what are your recreational activities like, and sometimes websites can get as detailed as evaluating your eating choices. After all eating [tag]locally grown food[/tag] contributes a lot less towards your carbon footprint then eating food shipped cross country in refrigerator trucks.

Evaluating your carbon footprint will not only make you more [tag]eco friendly[/tag], but it will also make you a much more informed consumer. A person capable of thinking about their purchasing power on a whole new level.

    There are not many of us that realize how our carbon footprint effects the eco system, but it is a fact that everything we do has an impact to an extent. The Food I am cooking on the grill is burning coal which creates pollution. The flowers in my garden are turning some of those pollutants into useful products, but I am sure the balance is in favor or pollutions. We all need to aware of our actions and reactions.

    What bothers me is those commercials that promote energy saving and waste reduction in their products, however most of these companies do very little to reduce their carbon footprint. The amount of pollution caused by packaging and the delivery of such products is terrible. Mass consumption and production i feel will be the end of us.

  6. going green is going good but I hope its not too late of an attempt. I think more big IT companies should consider going paperless

    We do not understand the importance of preserving the ecology of nature, and begin to understand when it is already too late. For at least a substantial effect it is necessary to introduce all the methods of conservation at the level of legislation.

  8. Indeed, the carbon footprint is a very powerful tool to understand the impact of personal behaviour on global warming. Most people are shocked when they see the amount of CO2 their activities create! If you personally want to contribute to stop global warming, the calculation and constant monitoring of your personal carbon footprint is essential.
