A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment, and in particular climate change. It relates to the amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day lives through burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating and transportation etc.
On a second personal note, my husband is from Brazil and the conservation of the Brazilian Rainforest is a big deal for us. One of Carbonfund.org programs is Amazon Forest Conservation Project and we will definitely be offsetting our travel to Brazil for our second wedding with a donation.
