Measure Your Carbon Footprint Today
Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. While no one can do everything, everyone can do something. Individuals cannot solve the problems of climate change on their own. Governments, at all levels, need to put the right policies and regulations in place. Industry needs to deliver new technologies and systems. Nonetheless there is much that individuals can do!
Our daily choices have a measurable impact on the environment called “The Carbon Footprint”, which is the total amount of greenhouse gases generated by our activity. 5 key areas impact our footprint: Energy, Transportation, Travel, Food consumption and Waste. With your household carbon footprint and our community carbon footprint, we can find ways to reduce our emissions, help our planet, and mitigate climate change. As a community we can make change happen together.
Wasaga Beach Climate Action Team (WBCAT) is partnering with the Collingwood Climate Action Team (CCAT), using the Project Neutral internet platform to launch the Carbon Footprint Challenge. Join the WBCAT Carbon Footprint Challenge today: we need 200+ households to submit their carbon footprint to measure our Wasaga Beach community average footprint.
By 2030 we need to reduce our carbon footprint by 50%, that’s 8% per year.
NOTE: See the 2 sections below, “How it works” and “How to get started” to help you with the challenge.
