A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment. It is measured in terms of units of carbon dioxide, representing an approximate amount of greenhouse gas that we produce in our daily lives. A carbon footprint is a useful tool for individuals or groups to conceptualize their effect on the environment and their contribution to global warming. More than just a tool for understanding, a carbon footprint can aid in helping people analyze ways in which to change their habits and live “lighter” on the planet, in terms of their use of natural resources.
