WHAT IS A CARBON FOOTPRINT? A carbon footprint is the amount of green house gasses emitted, gasses like CO2 (carbon dioxide). The total amount of greenhouse gases produced by human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). Your carbon footprint tells you how many planets you would take up if everyone lived in your life style. The UK average for a carbon footprint would be 3 planets but many people do go over that limit.
MY CARBON FOOTPRINT. My carbon footprint is 7.37, 4.3 higher then my UK average. I think this is because of the lack of electronics I use, straighteners, mp3’s, phones, internet and much more increases my carbon footprint. In my own personal opinion I think that I am not very eco friendly to the environment, because I would need 7 planets and that is no good. We would need 7.37 planets if everyone lived my lifestyle; We only have one planet.
REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT. To reduce your carbon footprint you should waste less and recycle more. There are people in the world who suffer in their everyday lives and over here there are people going over their limit with their carbon footprints.
