We are all familiar with dietary choices being associated with different climate impacts: a carnivorous diet has a significantly greater impact than a vegan one. But what about organic vs. non-organic? Internationally or locally grown? What about the type of packaging it comes in? Every single thing you consume in the modern world has a unique carbon impact associated with it, including (but not limited to) personal hygiene, fashion sense, electronics usage, transportation, and even recreational activities. Carbon footprint calculators allow you to measure the size of your personal carbon footprint and to break down the relative significance of each of the different types of consumption in your total carbon emissions. Find out which of your lifestyle choices have the most potential to reduce your individual climate impact!
