Here's your first challenge from The Conscious Shopper:
Calculate your carbon footprint.
There are a gazillion carbon calculators on the web. My personal favorite is the one over at The Nature Conservancy, for no other reason than that it's aesthetically pleasing (although it does score my household with a much higher footprint than the other calculators). Here are a few more for you to choose from:
But if you like a little competition, you can also compare yourself to me. Here's where my five-person, one-car household stands on several different carbon calculators:
- Nature Conservancy = 44 tons
- Conservation International = 14.1 tons
- EPA = 31,203 pounds
- Earthlab = 14 tons
What's your carbon footprint? Take a minute, pick a calculator, and tell me in the comments!
NEXT CHALLENGE...Keep track of your trash for a week.
You have hereby been challenged to go green in a year without going broke! View the whole list of Challengicious Mondays.
