Carbon calculator helps discover your footprint   


Use the carbon calculator
I found out yesterday that I won an employee “eco-basket” for taking Avista’s carbon calculator on our website. They randomly drew five names of employees who found out what their family carbon footprint is by using the calculator. The eco-basket contains some cool eco-friendly stuff printed on recycled paper, Buck-a-Block T-Shirt (which was a medium, so that goes to my wife) and some snacks. Cool stuff.

In August, when I took the calculator, I wrote a blog post about it, “What’s your carbon footprint? Use Avista’s calculator and find out.” The calculator is still up on the site and certainly worth the five minutes it takes to participate. Give it a shot and learn something about your footprint.

There are many carbon calculators available online, but this one automatically pulls in your household energy usage, so you don’t have to do the math. It’s also calibrated for Avista’s unique energy mix. Avista is one of the greenest utilities in the nation, so it makes sense to have the specifics for our generation in your calculation. Other calculators are good, but use general information since all utilities and lifestyles differ.

Discover your carbon footprint, click here and use the calculator.
