THINGS WE BUY
Emissions from many of the things we buy are not included in the government figures which are provided for Harrogate District. For example, centralised data does not quantify what our local consumption emissions are. This is because we do not all buy the same things or eat the same food. Also, emissions from flying are not included in government figures for the district. Individuals and businesses can calculate their own carbon footprints in a way which includes their shopping and lifestyle choices. Several online footprint calculators are available. One of the most recent is Pawprint.
