How many planets do we need: Calculate your carbon footprint

Description:

Working with your child to calculate your carbon footprint is a great way to start a conversation with children about understanding the resources which they use and their impact on the world. This website is easy to use and uses estimates rather than exact figures.

Promote learning by:

Asking your child to identify ways to reduce resource consumption and help write or illustrate a poster to encourage family members to turn off lights, taps and recycle.
