What is a carbon footprint? 

Whenever we go places, eat things, use, and buy new stuff, we’re contributing to the growing amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. While we don't see or feel these gases around us, almost every consumption choice we make directly or indirectly generates greenhouse gases. This is your carbon footprint, and it’s measured in kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e).
