Carbon Footprint


Everybody on the planet leaves a carbon footprint. Can you guess what this means?

A carbon footprint is the amount of greenhouse gases that a person uses because of their lifestyle.


For example, when someone drives a car the engine uses fuel that releases the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. When you are watching television or playing a computer game, the creation of electricity to power them releases some carbon dioxide. Even when you buy food, the energy used to produce that food would have emitted some carbon dioxide.

As you can see, there are a lot of ways a person can contribute to the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

But don't worry, we're going to investigate all the different ways you can reduce your carbon footprint and become an island protector!
