Have you ever wondered how your environmental impact measures up against others across the world? Now you have a way to find out! National Geographic offers a unique tool, called the Greendex Calculator that you can use to determine your mark on the planet.
This tool takes into account lifestyle factors such as:
Food sources—Is your meal home-grown or purchased in a store?
Transportation means—Do you use public transportation, hitch a ride in a carpool, or ride solo to work?
Energy usage—Do you have energy efficient or solar powered appliances and products?
