Green Progress, a leading environmental news site, released a new Carbon Footprint Calculator on Earth Day, 2007. By using this calculator, individuals can see their footprint based on the emissions produced from their home, garbage, recycling, driving, air travel, as well as eating habits. This simple to use calculator shows an estimate of an individual's direct contribution to global warming and climate change, and offers tips on how to immediately reduce their impact.


To make the results more familiar to most people, the results are displayed as a sort of carbon footprint report card. Letter grades are given based on the calculated emissions for each category, as well as an overall grade based on the average American footprint.

The goal of the Green Progress Carbon Footprint Calculator is to make individuals more aware of the size of their impact on the environment. Once users calculate their footprint, the site will offer many easy suggestions on how to reduce their individual impact. Not everyone can afford to run out and by a hybrid or install solar panels on their house, but there are still many small things that can be done to reduce their impact in a big way.
