Whenever  we burn fossil fuels like petrol, gas, and coal for our living or our kind of lifestyle, various carbon dioxide
(CO2) is released into the atmosphere. A carbon footprint is a measure of CO2 emissions that result in various activities of an individualduring a given time period.It is the total amount of CO2 that your lifestyle produces.It indicates your impact on the environmental through CO2 emissions.Environmental issues such as global warming are also linked to CO2 emissions.Modern lifestyle demandes the usage of fossilfules for transport,  electricity and other purpose .In many countries, electricity is generated by burning coal. Driving a car burns fuel, Which in turn releases CO2. All These Factors are taken into consideration when calculating the carbon footprint of an individual.

Carbon footprint reflects the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) that an individual produces in his daily activities by burning fossil fuels for transportation, electricity and more.

the average carbon footprint of any individual includes the CO2 emissions from his car, home and air travel and everything he uses that contributes to his carbon footprints. A carbon footprint is usually expressed in tons of Co2. According to the latest reports, for example, an average American produces around 28 tons of greenhouse gases in one year, mainly from transportation and energy used at home.

 Ways to Reduce Carbon Footprint
Transportation

The way you travel everyday directly affects the environment. For travelling short distances,there is absolutelyno need to use a vehicle. Walking or biking will not only reduce your carbon footprint but also keep you fit.  Whenever possible, commute by public transport as it decreases the strain on the environment. Instead of using your own vehicle, take the bus, which is one of the best ways to significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions (CO2). You need to service your vehicle regularly and ensure that the emission control system is operating efficiently. Check the fuel, oil and air filters and replace them if required. The tires should also be properly inflated as it reduces fuel consumption. Following better driving habits such as specified speed limit and maintaining a steady speed can go a long way in reducing CO2 emission.

Food Carbon ootprint

An easy way to curb your food-related carbon footprints to be purchase vegetables and fruits grown locally. Prefer local shops as it will also save fuel. This help minimises transport-related CO2 emission.

Use Energy Efficient Appliances

CO2 emission caused due to electricity usage can be brought under control by using energy-efficient appliances. Compact fluorescent bulbs require less electricity, so installing them in all light fixtures can save a lot of energy and help achieve an energy-efficient home.It has been observed that energy demands of certain home appliances increase over a period of time. For instance, as appliances like refrigerators get older, their performance decreases but the consumption of electricity increases. So it is better to replace them with new ones. Replacing air filters of air conditioners nd heaters every 3 months can also help the environment.
