Planting trees is our most effective means of removing CO2 from our atmosphere.
Answer the below questions to estimate your annual CO2 emissions and how many trees will offset them.
How much do you spend on fuel?
How many kilometres do you travel on public transport?
How much time do you spend flying?
How much meat do you consume?
What is your monthly data usage?
How would you catagorise your current home?
Where do you use natural gas at home?
Here you can factor in any emissions which weren't mentioned above.
If you produce 1 ton of CO2 each year then offseting it means
to do something that will either consume 1 ton of CO2 from the
atmonsphere or prevent another 1 ton of CO2 be emitted.
The easiest way to do this is by donating to organisations which plant trees around the world.
Typically it costs $1 for one tree to be planted.
There are many start-up companies which claim to offset your emissions via a monthly subscription or by paying a little extra on your ecommerce transactions.
Before you invest in one of these services you should carefully research where your money is going. Many claim to invest your money into renewable technologies but this may not mean your carbon emissions are being offset.
The emissions calculator provides a rough estimate of your carbon emissions.
The calculator averages documented carbon emission rates over a year based on your answers to provide a monthly emission level.
This means that the calculator depends not only on the accuracy of the documented carbon emission rates, but also on the accuracy of the information you have provided.
It is important to remember that the purpose of the emission calculator is to help you roughly identify how much carbon you are emitting and how many trees must be planted annually to offset it.
We do not collect any of your data.
We are a small group of Australian's who want to help spread awareness
around the everyday producers of carbon emissions.
Our hope is this simple tool helps highlight your main sources of CO2 and encourages you to reduce them.
