Work out your footprint in 3 minutes

Answer a few simple questions about your day-to-day life, from the food you eat to the things you buy. Our calculator then adds up all the carbon emissions they produce, to estimate your carbon footprint for the year.

Pay monthly to offset your carbon footprint

The average footprint in the UK costs about £7 a month to offset with Bulb. Yours may be smaller if, say, you've switched to green energy. Or bigger, if you fly loads. Whatever the cost, your money funds projects reducing carbon emissions around the world.

How we work out your carbon footprint

Our calculator may be simple to use, but there's some complicated maths behind it. We asked Imperial Consultants to get some independent researchers from Imperial College London to double-check our workings.

How we choose our projects

We only support projects having a lasting impact on carbon levels and verified by international standards.
