The National Forest Foundation has developed a Carbon Calculator to help estimate your carbon footprint, or the amount of carbon dioxide that your daily activities release into the atmosphere through the combustion of fossil fuels. Plug your numbers into the Carbon Calculator to see how you compare to the average American, and learn ways to reduce your emissions and offset your carbon footprint with our Carbon Capital Fund.
See the table to the right for your carbon footprint results.
|Carbon Source||Your Carbon Footprint||Average Carbon Footprint|
|You don't appear to use a car.||0 metric tons of CO2/year||0 metric tons of CO2/year|
|You don't appear to utilize airlines.||0 metric tons of CO2/year||0 metric tons of CO2/year|
|You don't appear to use any utilities.||0 metric tons of CO2/year||0 metric tons of CO2/year|
|Your total carbon footprint, which is a combination of the above metrics.||0 metric tons of CO2/year||0 metric tons of CO2/year|
What can I do about this?
Your donation will be used to plant trees on degraded National Forest lands in the Intermountain West. Carbon sequestration rates are based on an average value of carbon sequestration on various forest types in the Intermountain West. Importantly, no actual carbon offsets will be issued with this donation.
At $0 per metric ton, you can offset your carbon footprint of 0.00 metric tons with an investment of $0.00.
