A carbon footprint is defined as: The total amount of greenhouse gases produced directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide. All products that we consume are supporting human activities either directly or indirectly; every water bottle you drink, every carton of milk you throw out, adds up. We’ve all seen the commercials of how the average water drinker could stack their used bottles to the moon and back. If every person lived this way, we might not even be able to see the moon eventually! By simply recycling those used bottles (and other products), these towers would never get made, because each “brick” would be used again, and again. If we could reuse most things like this, our carbon footprint would be drastically reduced because we would not be making so many greenhouse gases (manufacturing our products for consumption).
