Get Your Carbon Footprint In 5 Minutes

“You can’t manage what you can’t measure.” @Project Neutral

Love to bike? Take transit to work? Do you compost food scraps? Planning a stay-cation? Feeling toasty-warm about insulating your windows? Cutting back on red meat or cheese? Are you vegan or vegetarian? If the answer is yes to any one of these questions, you are taking climate action.

Here’s even better news; you can double your impact by sharing your low-carbon lifestyle choices with others. Just talking about climate change and solutions like Project Neutral, is on the most impactful things you can do. Why? Because it helps to show others that climate solutions begin with a positive approach to make low-carbon living the new normal.

Measure Your Impact. Share It. Tag @ProjectNeutral. Project Neutral helps people understand how their daily choices impact climate change.

There are many ways you can decrease your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. And the good news is that some of the most effective climate solutions are also good for our health, our economy, and our well-being. Actions like:

Making your home more energy efficient makes it more comfortable, more resilient and increases its value.

Making small changes to your diet, like including more plant-based meals, can improve your health while reducing powerful climate pollutants like methane.

Driving less adds up to more savings and gives you more time for exercise or reading on your commute.

Choosing a stay-cation instead of a flight destination saves time, money and supports your local economy.

Installing a smart thermostat to avoid heating/cooling your home when no one is there.

Choosing local food that has travelled fewer kilometres to your plate.

Freezing last night’s leftovers for a great lunch later in the week and avoid throwing out spoiled food.

Composting food waste to keep it out of landfill, where it turns into highly-polluting methane gas.

Using your municipality’s online search tool to identify whether items can be composted, recycled or trashed.

These actions all add up to immediate reductions in greenhouse gas emissions (CO2e).
