How to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Sunday, April 27, 2008
Do you hear all the buzz about global warming but aren't sure how you can help? Does it seem just too big to get your arms around?
We all contribute to global warming in our every day lives. Those in the know call this their "carbon footprint," the total carbon dioxide emissions created when we drive or fly or use electricity.
The first step are the things we've all heard about; change to eco-friendly lightbulbs, carpool, buy locally produced foods, turn down the thermostat, blah, blah, blah...
For the emissions you can't reduce there's TerraPass.
When you buy a TerraPass, your money funds clean energy and efficiency projects such as wind farms. These projects result in verified reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
To get a better understanding of TerraPass and your carbon footprint, check out www.terrapass.com. You'll can calculate your "footprint" just for driving the kids to school. It also calculates the cost to off-set those emissions ($29.95 for Suzy).
