We were inspired by the current environmental crisis on global warming and wanted to know how people could make meaningful changes by themselves.
What it does
It gets inputs of basic lifestyle information, computes it into a carbon footprint number and shows differences from the US average and how to improve your own carbon footprint.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Calculating the exact amount of Carbon emissions for different categories was challenging to find.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud of having a fully functioning calculator which does and fulfills its purpose.
What's next for Carbon Footprint Calculator
Implementing a better UI and potentially AI-based recommendations into how it can be used to pinpoint points that the client can improve on to have a minimal carbon footprint.
