Get a Picture of Your Personal Carbon Footprint With Our Carbon Calculator

Every time you drive a car, contribute to the production of goods by making purchases, or turn the heat on in your home, you are contributing to the release of carbon dioxide into the Earth's atmosphere. The total amount of greenhouse gasses that your activities produce is called your personal carbon footprint.

Your carbon footprint is expressed in tons of CO2. It's the sum of all CO2 emissions that are created by your activities over a specified period of time. Carbon dioxide is the most prevalent greenhouse gas, although there are many others. Thus, if you're interested in living more sustainably and helping to control climate change, reducing your carbon footprint is an important step.

In order to start reducing your carbon footprint, you'll first need to calculate your carbon footprint so you have a good starting point. Sustain:Green's carbon footprint calculator can do so for you, as long as you have the required information to enter. To calculate your carbon footprint, you need to know:

  • How many people live in your home
  • Your primary heating source (gas, oil, wood, etc.)
  • Whether your home uses green power sources
  • How many miles per gallon your vehicle gets, and how far you drive each week.
  • How much gas, electricity, and propane your home uses each month
  • Details about your recycling habits.

Once you enter all of the above information into our online calculator, it will give you your personal carbon footprint as well as your household carbon footprint. After you know where you stand, you can start taking steps to reduce your carbon footprint.

There are many ways to decrease your carbon footprint, from buying a more gas-efficient vehicle, to recycling more items so that fewer new ones must be produced. Another way to reduce your footprint is to open a Sustain:Green MasterCard® or prepaid card. Not only are our credit cards biodegradable, but we also contribute offset your carbon footprint every time you make a purchase. Contact us today to learn more.
