Start the new year off with an environmental resolution - carbon footprint reduction! A carbon footprint is the total amount of carbon produced by an individual, a product, an event, an organization or business, etc. As we know, carbon production is the leading cause of global warming and the increasing temperature of our planet. This increasing temperature will negatively impact many areas that are important to us as a human race; including food production, drinkable water supply, livability of regions, and so on. We not only need to understand this topic as a society, but we also need to learn how to reduce our personal impacts on an individual basis.
Here is a link to Brian's Excel spreadsheet (always helpful with things do the calculations for you!) and here is a link to his manual worksheet, if you prefer to do the calculations yourself.
Submit your carbon footprint below and let's keep each other accountable! We will check back in with everyone in January 2021 and see how much we improved throughout the year.
