There’s no denying the planet is in real crisis and everyone, no matter who you are or where you live, has a responsibility to do what they can.
But how do you know exactly what damage you’re doing to the environment? What are the day-to-day changes that you can make which could improve your energy efficiency, reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill, and save you money?
If you want to calculate your carbon footprint, use the WWF carbon footprint calculator which has a simple questionnaire available which will give you an idea of what your carbon footprint is.
A similar tool is also available on My Climate. No two simple carbon calculators are the same, as they rely on some assumptions about our habits and our buildings. It’s useful to get an idea of how big your carbon footprint is anyway, even if it isn’t perfectly accurate, because you can use it to see which parts of your life have the biggest impact and where you can make the biggest savings.
