Carbon Footprint

What is a carbon footprint, you ask? It is a measure of the impact all of your activities have on the environment-a measurement of greenhouse gasses that we produce as individuals.

The primary footprint measures our direct emissions of CO2 from burning fossil fuels - using domestic energy and transportation, for example.

The secondary footprint measures indirect CO2 emmissions from the lifecycle of the products we use - both manufacturing and breakdown.

To calculate your carbon footprint and learn how to reduce it, go to the following website: Even small changes make a difference, and can add up to have a tremendous impact on the environment!
