CALCULATING YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT – SPREAD THE WORD!


One of my readers in England had a very good idea.  She and her husband are sponsoring a “carbon footprint” contest  in their church and offering a prize to the person with the lowest footprint.  What a good way to raise awareness and inspire people to take action.  I’ll keep you posted on how it works out.

Why not do something similar in your church, synagogue, school, book club, or community?  Check out this link to calculate your carbon footprint: http://www.motherearthnews.com/Healthy-People-Healthy-Planet/Carbon-Footprint or this one:  http://www.b-e-f.org/carbon/education.  There are several other environmental organizations which also do an online calculation, as well as have printable worksheets.

Give it a try.  Simple steps can make a difference!
