Self-power Day Numbers

Lighting the Eiffel Tower

And the numbers are in…..

On  September 10 a total of 120 H.I.S students and staff self-powered to school. We walked  and cycled about 236 kilometers, and, assuming everyone self-powered home, 472 kilometers during the day.

For our estimate, we assumed a 1km commute for those not quite sure how far they travelled.

Traveling this distance individually, each in an average-sized auto, emits an estimated 114 kg of carbon dioxide into the earth’s atmosphere, according to greentripper.org.

The calculator on ecotree.green put this estimate at 128 kg CO2, and estimates this is equivalent to lighting the Eiffel Tower for two days!

Thank you again for all who helped to reduce our carbon footprint!
