Knowledge is power. Research from Duke University in 2018 reported that when it comes to food choices, consumers "favor items with a lower carbon footprint if they're given clear information on the label" (Camilleri et al. 2018). This raises the question, would consumers reduce their carbon footprint from transportation if they were more informed? This motivated us to create a web application to inform consumers about their carbon footprint option, hoping this will persuade them to make a more eco-friendly decision.
What it does
Our web application takes in two inputs, the location you are at and the place you are heading. Then, it would prompt a page with information about the pounds of carbon from different modes of transportation.
