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?
You can take the Greendex survey at http://environment.nationalgeographic.com/environment/greendex/calculator/ and afterwards, review some of the findings of the survey. Once you determine your Greendex score, you can see how it compares to those scores in 17 countries across the planet.
DING! You are now free to be green!
