OC Green Realtor Issues Eco-Footprint Challenge

Posted on April 30, 2011. Filed under: First Time Buyer help, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: |

Once again this ever-vigilant Orange County green Realtor has been scouring and searching for eco-friendly ideas to share with the world. And I’m pleased to say I recently discovered a unique set of resources for anyone who’s ever wondered what kind of impact they’re having on this planet’s ecology.

OK, even if you haven’t exactly been sitting up nights pondering the matter, you definitely should know about this opportunity. I’m talking about five super websites that will reveal how big a footprint you’re leaving on earth’s precious environment. If you’re the least bit curious, please take a moment visit at least one of these sites —

earthlab – Invites you to learn how big a carbon footprint you’re leaving on the earth. Just provide a bit of info, and you’ll get your carbon score free of charge. Take this challenge, and prepare to cut back on the carbon.

Conservation Internaitional – Organization that provides smart solutions to protect our natural resources. Offers user-friendly carbon calculator gives you a quick peek at your pollution.

Carbonfund – Another wonderful site dealing with … you guessed it, carbon and how you can contribute less of it. Features CarbonFree® Partner program, a unique way to help your business calculate, reduce, and offset carbon footprints.

National Wildlife Federation – Works across the country to protect the ultimate life-sustaining resource, water. Features water calculator.

Center for Neighborhood Technology – This organization has been a leader in promoting urban sustainability, or the more effective use of existing resources. Airhead, the site’s emissions calculator, will teach you just how much air pollution you create.

After You Know the Size of Your Footprint…

We’d like to know how you did. And, what positive changes you plan to make. Don’t worry. This won’t affect your FICO score. But your efforts will have a positive impact on our planet. You can fire off a comment below. Or or tweet @weeksteam with #green.

And, of course, if I can be of help, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. You can connect with me at 949.338.7408 or  angie@askangie.com,  @AngieWeeks or @WeeksTeam.
