I just wrote the dumbest blog post ever about how to calculate your family’s carbon footprint and then realized, hey, who the fuck has time for that? Not this mom.
If you are asking yourself the question, then you probably already know that your carbon footprint *isn’t the best* and that you need to reduce it. So let’s figure out how to do that instead!
A carbon footprint calculator is a lil tool that estimates the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced each year by your consumption habits. To reduce your carbon footprint, reduce your consumption. It’s really that simple.
What’s not simple, though, is how to get started. If you are a busy mom just trying to make it through your day, any type of lifestyle change can be daunting as hell.
I know what that feels like. And I never imagined that the time in my life when I would start taking the environment more seriously would be when I was juggling a full-time job, a business, and two kids under two.
But here we are folks! I’m full of fun surprises.
I’ll keep this short: to start reducing your family’s carbon footprint, check out my (very concise, literally one blog post) Busy Mom’s Guide to Green Living. It provides an easy approach to making better lifestyle choices and keeping your family’s consumption in check.
Our family’s carbon footprint sucks. I drive an SUV, do multiple loads of laundry a day, and I literally don’t know how to recycle (time to tackle that, like, yesterday). But I’m ready to face the music and live more ecofriendly — are you?
Head on over to the Busy Mom’s Guide to Green Living to get started.
