I chose this calculator because it was easy to understand and gave me consistent information. it taught me about how much small things can effect our environment and it showed me what to do to help reduce my carbon footprint,

How to reduce your footprint

1. Carpool instead of drive yourself.

2. Use cold water instead of hot water when doing laundry.

3. Turn off lights as you walk out of a room.

4. Reuse water bottles instead of throwing them away.

5. Recycle paper and try printing less.
