TheCarbonAccount.com – Track and Reduce Your Footprint

TheCarbonAccount.comIf you would like to live a greener life or help your friends to do the same, TheCarbonAccount.com is a new site you might find quite useful.

On this site, you can go beyond simply reading information on how to minimize your environmental impact. When you register and create your “Carbon Account” you can enter personal and household data and start tracking your personal carbon footprint. Your carbon footprint is a common term used to describe the total amount of carbon emissions you are personally responsible for. You may be directly responsible (such as the fuel you burn in your car) or indirectly responsible (such as the carbon emissions resulting from production and transportation of the food you eat). TheCarbonAccount takes both types into account when calculating your footprint. This site goes a step further than most other carbon footprint calculators by asking you to keep entering information over time – such as gas meter readings, car mileage, or information about flights taken. TheCarbonAccount also has a Facebook App that was recently released.
