Carbon Footprints and Planting Trees


Today I calculated the household's carbon footprint at 3.5 tonnes per year. (This is a big reduction on previous years and is well under half of the national average, but more than the ideal global average.)

I then proceeded to calculate how many trees we need to plant to offset that. Averages suggest one native broadleaf tree per tonne of CO2 per year, so I'm making an effort to catch up over my own lifetime. Are you?

Find out how to calculate your own carbon footprint then if you haven’t space to plant your own trees, we can plant them for you.
