Carbon footprint is something you will hear more often in the years to come, as more and more people will be consciously trying to do their part in conserving the environment. You have control over your carbon footprint as it is the measure of carbon dioxide emissions from the things you do like riding a plane or car. The secondary carbon footprint measure is the indirect emissions from products you use daily, from their manufacture to their eventual breakdown. Secondary emissions are not under your direct control, but you can still do your part in limiting their emission.

But, they are important. Replacing those old windows with new, double-pane windows can save you energy dollars—look for low U-value windows (which means high R-rating as in insulation.) In rooms where sunlight is a problem, windows with a low E rating (reflective value) can keep the sun from fading your furniture, carpets, and floors.
The world around us getting a fresh layer of paint - green paint that is. Everywhere you look, from TV commercials to news stories, green and eco-friendly initiatives are taking center stage. Although companies around the world are trying to harness the 'green revolution,' this isn't a bad thing. If small and large companies make it both their civic and corporate duty to become a little bit greener, it will benefit both our environment and economy in the long run.
