💸 Spend That Green 💸

🌱 In 2016, a bunch of world leaders got together and agreed we, as a species, need to limit our CO₂ emissions to prevent mass destruction of our planet.

🤔 What does this mean for your day to day? What about a month?

😬 Make life choices. Spend your carbon budget. Stay under your allotted monthly allowance.

Why do I have an allowance?

Think of this as your personal CO₂ emissions budget.

The Paris Climate Agreement established a long term goal of limiting the increase in global average temperature to 1.5 degree Celsious.

Spend That Green visualizes what this means for an American millennial by giving you a monthly CO₂ budget.

According to one source, 2.3 tons is the average human's annual personal carbon budget. Dividing this by 12 months in a year, we get a budget of 383.3 lbs of CO₂ per month.
