How Big Is Your Carbon Footprint?

For anyone curious about how their everyday actions may be hurting the planet.

Before the quiz begins, WTF is a carbon footprint anyway?

Merriam Webster defines it as:

"The amount of greenhouse gases and specifically carbon dioxide emitted by something (as a person's activities or a product's manufacture and transport) during a given period."

The aforementioned things that emit these greenhouse gasses are ingrained in our everyday life — cars, planes, air-conditioning, the food we eat, and so on — and are often hard to part with. But it's worth it for the planet.

Now let's see how your carbon footprint is!

  1. HOW DO YOU GET TO WORK EVERY DAY?

  2. HOW DO YOU WASH YOUR CLOTHES?

  3. WHICH LIGHTBULBS DO YOU
    GENERALLY USE?

  4. WHAT KIND OF CAR DO YOU DRIVE?

  5. HOW MANY
    AIR-CONDITIONING UNITS ARE IN
    YOUR HOME?

  6. HOW DO YOU WASH YOUR DISHES?

  7. ANY DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?

  8. HOW DO YOU KEEP COOL IN THE SUMMER?
