DEQ carbon calculator: Just try it


Calculate Your Carbon Footprint

Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality has a carbon calculator you might want to test out. Go on. It will be good for you. There’s no rule saying you have to do anything to reduce your footprint (not yet) once you know your score. And the questions force you to think about things that are actually just good to consider from time to time.

For example:

• How much meat and dairy products do you eat relative to fruits and veggies?

• How much stuff – clothes, furniture, appliances – do you buy on a monthly basis?

• How much do you spend per month on gas and electricity?

• How much are you flying and driving?

There’s a tip sheet at the end of it that will tell you how you can shave carbon pounds (you might lose weight, too).
