carbon footprint
CARBON FOOTPRINT

This is a measure of how much carbon dioxide is used e.g. by transporting a product from one place to another. Carbon Dioxide is released when fuel is burned and for this reason it is better for the environment if we avoid consuming food and goods with a high carbon footprint. This is because too much carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere is causing it to slowly heat up.
