How to Offset Your Carbon Footprint

It’s time to take the heat for your contribution to the global warming crisis. Every day, the activities you have come to recognize as a basic part of you existence (such as cooking, watching TV or using your computer) use electricity — one of the biggest contributors to global warming. With each passing day these little things add up to what’s called your “carbon footprint,” or basically, the amount of carbon dioxide you create in your lifetime.

Here’s how to start offsetting your carbon footprint:

Step One: Estimate your carbon footprint to see how much damage you have to offset.

Step Two: Start making effective lifestyle changes. One cool way to do this is by shopping smarter. At Gaiam, one of the first companies to start the trend, you can opt for something called “Go Zero Shipping.” With a $2 donation, they will plant a tree to offset the carbon emissions created by shipping your purchase.

Step Three: Contribute to worthy causes. At CarbonFund.org, you can donate as little at $5 a month to help offset your pollution. Choose what you want your money to support, including renewable energy, energy efficiency or reforestation projects.

Step Four: Don’t give up. Climate change doesn’t happen overnight and neither will huge lifestyle transformations. Take things bit by bit with Ideal Bite. Sign up and receive bite-size tips to make your life greener one day at a time.
