Down the excel calculator
The first step to reducing your carbon footprint is to see exactly how many pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) you and your family are responsible for emitting. The Household Carbon Calculator will allow you to benchmark your footprint now. Just enter the information that reflects your lifestyle and calculate your carbon footprint. Date and save it.
Then, analyze the results and determine what steps you are willing to take that will reduce your footprint -- then take action. In three months, measure your progress.
