    Zerofootprint (www.zerofootprint.net) is a great site that helps individuals, businesses and educational institutes find ways to measure and manage carbon footprints. Their online carbon footprint calculator allows users to measure their footprints by answering some lifestyle questions along with committing to goals that help reduce their impact. It’s a great tool!
