Carbon Footprint Calculation
My Carbon Footprint Calculation: carbon_footprint_calculator_-_md_rafiul_sabbir_hridoy.pdf
I have calculated my carbon footprint of last year and I think it is quite ok for me. Actually as I live in student dormitory so I do not have enough option to reduce the carbon emission caused by the house. I normally separate and throw trashes in right way hence try to minimize the carbon emission. But it was a good way to know actually how much carbon I emit (directly or indirectly). I will try to reduce it even more in next year.
