how deep does your carbon footprint sink?

The City of Edmonton launched a challenge to Edmontonians yesterday through a nifty Zerofootprint calculator. The calculator and online community have been set up to challenge Edmontonians to set goals on how to decrease their environmental impact and be smarter in the ways they travel, maintain their yards, reduce waste, and save energy and water!

It’s fairly easy to sign up (it only took about 5 minutes to figure out how the site works) and allows you to make personal goals and track the goals and challenges of fellow Edmontonians in their quest to take more personal responsibility over the carbon footprint they are leaving in their daily lives.

The City of Edmonton also gets points for recognizing that realistically decreasing individual environmental impacts will take more than one simple act.

(Take the challenge!)
