Earth Day Canada: Ecoaction Calculator

Ever wondered about the size of your ecological footprint? It's something definitely worth pondering as we make an effort to go more 'green' and work on healing our planet. I've always been curious about my ecological impact, but never quite knew how to figure it out. That is, until I learned about the Ecoaction Calculator from our friends over at Earth Day Canada. The Ecoaction Calculator helps you reduce your environmental impact by figuring out ways to cut down on electricity and water, while learning tips to help you recycle and build composts. As you use the calculator to answer various questions pertaining to your habits, you're encouraged to commit to a greener lifestyle by challenging yourself to save.* Suggestions include taking the train instead of driving in to work, eating more vegetarian meals, and even cutting down on the amount of water you use each week. One of the best perks of using this calculator, however, is that you can share in your commitments as a team. Once you log in and create a profile, you can encourage your friends, family and coworkers to join your team, where you'll be able to encourage each other to commit to a greener lifestyle. Think you're up for the challenge? Visit the Ecoaction Calculator and commit to reducing your ecological footprint starting now. You can also check out more tips from Earth Day Canada in their special blog series. Good luck! * Savings are calculated in energy, waste, water, greenhouse gas emissions, and dollar savings.
