Carbon Footprint

Carbon footprint calculation is still new in most developing countries. As of September 09, eHomemakers had spent more than one year searching for a formula to calculate the carbon footprints of our eco-basket project until we met experts from YTL-SVC Carbon S/B.

To date, we haven't been able to find the carbon footprints of other similar handicrafts to do comparisons of carbon footprints.

We limit the carbon emissions by utilising paper wastes (magazines discarded by households and corporate flyers left over from corporate activities), empowering women and alleviating poverty as well as reducing emissions by having the weavers work from home.

Help us reduce carbon footprint of this eco-basket project by buying more baskets. If the sales increase, each weaver can transport more baskets per carload to our marketing office for quality control and stock-taking, thus reducing transport emission per basket.

Browse our carbon footprint report for our baskets. (1 paper roll is 5.54 g of carbon emission.)

Also, calculate the carbon footprint of your daily activities.

Here's some videos that would give you a better understanding of what carbon footprint is and ways to reduce it.
