An update on Brighter Planet and carbon footprints

Reporter John Flowers chimed in last week with news from <a href="www.brighterplanet.com">Bright Planet</a href>. The Middlebury start-up is based just a hop, skip, and a jump from our own Marble Works headquarters, so naturally we've been paying attention to what the resident environmentalists are up to. Flowers <a href="http://addisonindependent.com/node/2483">tipped off readers</a href> to news about the company's new carbon calculator. The idea is that a curious would-be environmentalist can head online, calculate their carbon footprint by keying in details about their life, and then learn how to cut back or offset carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to climate change.You can try for yourself online at http://beta.brighterplanet.com/.
