A new online tool enables individuals to join forces in the fight against global warming. Using the free carbon calculator from Eco Hatchery, individuals can join a community, calculate their environmental impact, and work toward a common goal to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
"We developed the online calculator to help people see that their individual actions really do make a difference. By making simple changes to their commute, energy use, consumption of products, and even diet, they can help their community achieve environmental targets," said Eco Hatchery co-founder Andrea Nylund.
A community can be created for free by any group - large or small, such as a company, university, business park, association, or city. Community members can track the group's progress online.
"The new Administration is calling upon Americans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050 to put a stop to the most catastrophic scenarios of global warming, and many states are setting ambitious goals to align with this effort. Success will depend on the determination and participation of all the links in the chain, from energy providers to individuals, " Nylund emphasized.
The Eco Hatchery calculator helps individuals understand how their carbon footprint fits into the bigger picture and provides them with a practical range of options for making a positive long-term impact.
Based in Milwaukee, WI, Eco Hatchery is hatching green homes by helping individuals take the first steps toward energy conservation and greenhouse gas emissions reductions. The company's flagship product is the Eco Starter Kit which includes key products for conserving energy and water, lowering utility bills, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions (available online: $97.50).
