Objective information on the impacts of products and services is often difficult to obtain and utilize. WikiFootprints is a web-based project to create a free compendium of the environmental impacts of goods and services. Environmental impact information includes carbon footprints, water consumption, energy use, and material use. The goal of the WikiFootprints project is to give consumers an easy way to include the environment in decisions to consume a product or service.
WikiFootprints is created using a tool called MediaWiki. It allows internet readers to create, update, and edit information on this website. Content on WikiFootprints is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike (CC BY-SA 4.0) unless otherwise noted.
