Earth Day: Home

Calculate your Climate Footprint!

You can make changes in your life to help fight climate change. You can't change every part of your life. But a climate calculator can help you decide where to make the biggest difference! Our favorite is on the "How Big is Your Climate Footprint?" page supported by the “Inquiry to Student Environmental Action” (I2SEA) project. You will see an option for a basic calculator and a more advanced calculator. Another great one is provided by the Global Footprint Network and can be found here: Footprint Calculator
