CARBON FOOTPRINT
Carbon Footprint
Introduction

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases produced due to our actions
that directly and indirectly support human activities. This data is usually expressed in terms of
carbon dioxide tons. My carbon footprint size is 39 tons of carbon dioxide per year, with 12 tons
of carbon dioxide per year of the shopping footprint.
