There are many carbon footprint calculators on the web, but we didn't want to just ESTIMATE our impact. Instead, we wanted to measure our ACTUAL carbon footprint, based upon our actual usage from the utility bills received. The nice thing about a carbon footprint calculator is that it converts everything into a common metric (lbs of carbon dioxide emissions equivalents), so you can focus on the biggest impacting areas of your lifestyle.
Just enter the usage of each utility each month (that are applicable), and our system will automatically calculate your carbon footprint. We will also provide a pie chart of where your largest impact is coming from, to help you prioritize which green actions you should improve first.
The current utility data we let you track are as follows:

"I filled out the form for the United States, and it said we use 11,474 gallons of water per person per year. When I looked at my actual bill over the past 2 months, and calculated the annual usage for both of us (2 people in our household), it came out to 16,425 gallons per year, which would be 8,212.5 gallons per person per year. Overall, not a bad estimate considering how simple it is to fill out. Are others finding it pretty accurate?"
