Did you know that the carbon footprint of a diamond necklace is the same as that of drinking 1,333 pints of beer? Or that a mile traveled by a subway train has the same carbon footprint of 3 teapots boiled by gas energy? These fun snippets of information can be discovered on Carbonize, a new web app developed by eCO2 Greetings that lets you compare the carbon footprints of over one hundred popular items. In addition to helping people see the effects of their actions on the planet, eCO2 Greetings also promises that they will plant one tree with American Forests’ Global Re-leaf Campaign for every 100 social shares of a #CarbonizeFACT.
