Walk softly on the earth
What's a carbon footprint? How can I lower my carbon footprint? Leo Bonnanni introduces Sourcemap.org - a website about where things come from and what they're made of to help with sustainable shopping and design. You can see the carbon footprint of each product on the site over different phases of life-cycle (extraction, manufacturing, shipping, use and end-of-life). You can also use Sourcemap to find out the carbon footprint of meals, trips, and products, and share these maps with your friends and colleagues through the site's built in social network.
