Reflect, Reduce, Restore
With Carbon Positive Australia
Carbon Positive Australia a non-profit environment charity have created a FREE step-by-step online calculator, that will help you understand your personal carbon footprint, and provides facts, tips and practical steps to reduce your emissions.
Everything we do in life has an impact. From how we commute to work, to what we buy at the grocery store. Our lifestyle choices contribute to our carbon footprint. Did you know that Australians have one of the highest personal carbon footprints in the world?
The good news is, together we can change that.
How does it work?
Your carbon footprint is calculated retrospectively based on your lifestyle and resource consumption for a specific period. You can calculate your footprint for the past month, three months, or year.
You’ll be asked to choose which categories you would like to include in your calculation:
. Travel (long-distance travel including road, air, rail and ocean)
. Energy (electricity and other utilities)
. Water (state water supply)
. Transport (local travel via vehicles and public transport)
. Food and drink (household grocery and dining)
by category or diet type (omnivore, pescatarian, vegetarian and vegan)
. Waste (general waste disposal)
“Issues like climate change can be really overwhelming and as individuals we can feel powerless. Calculating your carbon footprint is the first step in understanding and reducing your personal impact and empowers you in your journey to uphold the environmental ethics you want to live by.”
What do you need?
5 to 10 minutes coupled with a drive to better the planet!
What can you do next?
You can offset your footprint by donating to Carbon Positive Australia’s range of native restoration projects. For more than 20 years their projects have restored degraded land across Australia and captured carbon. This means when you offset your footprint with Carbon Positive Australia, you are restoring native landscape and fighting climate change.
We are facing a climate emergency, so it’s critical we take steps to tread more lightly and restore our precious planet.
