Carbon Footprint Calculator
Everything we do has an impact. From how we commute to work, to what we buy at the grocery store, our lifestyle choices are contributing to our carbon footprint. Did you know Australians have one of the highest personal carbon footprints in the world? The good news is we can change that.
Carbon Positive Australia has developed a free Carbon Footprint Calculator to help you understand your carbon footprint and provide you with tips and practical steps to make positive changes to reduce and offset your emissions.
We are facing a climate emergency so it’s critical we take steps to tread more lightly and restore our precious planet. Get to know your number here.
Tree Planting is Underway
June is one of our favourite months because it is tree planting month! All of our donations from the previous year will finally become trees in the ground. Carbon Positive Australia has started planting trees and will continue through to the end of July. Trees are planted in the winter months to give trees the best survival and growth rates.
Carbon Positive Australia plants a biodiverse mix of native trees and shrubs tailored to each planting site. All species planted are indigenous to the site, and where possible seed is collected from or around the planting area. Find out more about the current planting projects here.
