How do we calculate our carbon footprint?

There are many ways of calculating carbon footprint...and there are many nifty calculators that can help you do that, you can spend 10-15 minutes to several hours trying to calculate impact of your activities on the environment..depends on how accurately you want to do it.

For the purpose of this community project, I am trying to find an easy to use carbon footprint calculator which everyone can use without much technical background or training. In this quest, I have located the links below that provide fun and engaging options (courtesy: EPA Victoria):

Personal Calculator
Home Calculator

[Note: Just follow the instructions. Keep your latest electricity, gas, fuel, water bills handy.]

The calculators can help you to set the targets to reduce your carbon footprint and live sustainably. You can even save money.

Enjoy...let me know your experience. Drop me a line...
