The CarbonCurb Savings
The 30 CarbonCurb actions were selected considering weighted factors of cost, convenience, and GHG emissions reduction potential. Theoretically, using the United States' average annual per capita carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions of 16 metric tons (MT) (16,000 kg or over 35,000 pounds) as a baseline, adopting all 30 of the CarbonCurb actions would save the typical American over 6 MT of CO2, or roughly 40% of their annual emissions. By taking the CarbonCurb journey and becoming a climate warrior, you can make measurable reductions in your contribution to global warming.
With every action you adopt, your lifestyle becomes less carbon-intensive. We have pulled together data and information to help you understand the actual impact each CarbonCurb action could have on your annual GHG emissions. It might not be feasible for you to complete every action, but it is worth noting most actions can be easily implemented at zero or negative cost (meaning they will actually save you money).
CarbonCurb motivates and empowers individuals to reduce their emissions through behavior change. Look below at the difference in your annual emissions before and after CarbonCurb. Is this worth it to you? We believe in you!
