The Concord Carlisle
Calculate your footprint, make reductions and help our communities reach the goal of reducing 1,000 tons of carbon by the end of 2013.
The web app includes 3 parts:
- Calculate: See how big your carbon footprint is based on your home, the food you eat, the energy you use and the amount of trash you produce as well as many other factors
- Reduce: The most important part! Select from a list of over 50 things you can do or submit one of your own
- Compare: See how you compare to others in Concord, Carlisle and the rest of the world
SAVE MONEY: The calculator has been customized to take advantage of existing town programs that are easy to use and save you money. For example, did you know the Concord Light Plant offers up to $3 rebate on the purchase of a compact fluorescent light or LED bulb as well as up to $100 rebate on the purchase of an Energy Star appliance? These are just two of the many ways you can lower your impact and save money.
Help preserve the environment and make Concord & Carlisle more sustainable today!
