We used a number of carbon footprint calculators listed on Energy Diet. We calculated our teachers footprint and then we each calculated our own. We realized we have to make changes so that we decrease our carbon footprints. The good thing is that we are making changes. Our water bottle project is a great start. We all drink lots of water now and there are less bottles in the recycling. We are working on turning of the water when we brush our teeth and lots of us decided we need to take shorter showers. One of our classroom families decided to have family reusable water bottles They are not buying bottled drinks anymore!
