Uber's new 'Emissions Savings' feature helps us keep track of our carbon footprints

As an individual, it is difficult for us to calculate our carbon footprint. If we want to contribute towards a green environment, we have no idea how much progress we made. It helps to have a calcuator of sorts.
Sending climate love to Uber for launching their "Emissions Savings" feature which gives data to riders on how much carbon dioxide emissions they can avoid by choosing electric vehicle and hybrid options.

The feature is initially being launched in over 15 cities in the US and Canada, and is even accessible to teen account holders. This data feature calculates CO2 savings relative to UberX and Uber Comfort trips for the same distance covered.
Of course, there are still a lot of tricky points to be covered, like the fact that it is not easy to calculate CO2 emissions on ride hailings, but research is in progress, and the result does look hopeful. What I would say is, any movement towards a greener environment is good movement, and is always welcome.
