Do You Know Your Carbon Footprint?

One nice thing about being frugal is that it brings us closer to a green lifestyle and being kinder to our environment.

Do you know your carbon foot print? You can visit Earth Lab  and use their Carbon Footprint Caculator where it will give you your score and show you how it compares to others in your area.

You can score anywheres from 150 to 900 with the lower score being the better of the two.

My families score is 238 compared to others in my area averaging 376 giving us a carbon footprint of 6.6 where others locally are at 17.2. Even though that still leaves some room for us to improve and get greener, NOT BAD at all!

What did you score and will you take a pledge to go greener?
