Going Carbon Neutral

Many have heard me talk at work, to my friends and whoever else I meet to go Carbon Neutral. What is Carbon Neutral you ask? Well, it is simply offsetting your Carbon Emissions. This can be done several ways. You can purchase what is called an offset credit. To figure out what your impact is, you simply use a calculator, then purchase the required credits to offset your total contribution. I used this site to figure it out, then purchased the Home and Vehicle offsets first, with plans to purchase the personal one in the near future. Here is the link: Zero Foot Print. There is tonnes of information here on how to reduce our overall impact on CO2 emissions. They also offer cards that you can buy for family and friends. Each one is $15 and offsets 1 tonne of Carbon.
