Step 1

Visit coolclimate.berkley.edu/calculator to first get a baseline of your personal carbon footprint. The pie chart represents the carbon footprint for the average Princeton resident. However, this can vary greatly for an individual, depending on your particular housing situation as well as your travel, food and shopping habits. 

Step 2

After completing the calculator, take action! The calculator will suggest a number of ways you can reduce your footprint, listing the upfront cost as well as the money you will save with each action.
