New Carbon Calculator Will Help You Make Better Choices For The Planet

By Aimee Lutkin

More and more people are wondering how they can contribute to slowing the climate changes that are affecting our planet on every front. Fast Company reports that non-profit Conservation International is offering a reliable source for helping folks figure out how they can be more conscious in their everyday decision to reduce their carbon footprint. Their Carbon Calculator has been remodeled to help you figure out how you're drawing resources from the Earth, and suggests ways you can alter your daily habits to benefit the world.

“What we’ve really noticed lately is that climate change has really become a personal issue for people,” Shyla Raghav, climate change lead at Conservation International, told Fast Company. “It’s no longer someone else’s problem. There’s a recognition that we all have a role to play. By having access to this information, it empowers each of us to make decisions about our daily choices and our lifestyle that will have an impact on the planet.”

The interest in how one could be more environmentally conscious has increased over the past year. While we need to change things at the top level, making small changes in our habits can produce far-reaching results. The Carbon Calculator is a huge help with that, and is versatile enough for all sorts of circumstances.
