What is a Carbon Footprint?

Carbon footprint is a measure of the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted through the combustion of fossil fuels; in the case of an organization, business or enterprise, as part of their everyday operations; in the case of an individual or household, as part of their daily lives; or a product or commodity in reaching market. In materials, it is essentially a measure of embodied energy, the result of life cycle analysis.

In this age of a massively populated World, a busy lifestyle and many (uneccesary) material things it is important to know your carbon footprint and take steps towards decreasing it.
