FRIDAY FAVORITE--this blog is carbon neutral!
I'm late to the Carbon Neutral party, but I wanted to save it for my Friday Favorite. Lately, I've been working a lot with a green builder here in Boise and have learned (more slowly than I'd like) more and more about what it takes to make a new structure or a remodel green. To steal a title from writer-director Nancy Meyers, it's complicated.
What's not complicated is calculating the carbon footprint of your home. You can do that here. This is one of the easier calculators I've seen (because it requires less data input, though this also means it's not as accurate as some of the others). They even offer ways to offset your footprint at the end of the calculation.
