London’s Nitipak Samsen has designed an ingenious measuring tape that calculates the amount of CO2 absorbed by a tree through measuring the trunk’s circumference.  The tape translates the amount of digested carbon dioxide into an amount of time of specific activities that we do – like 1 hour on a flight or 2 days of breathing.  The measuring tape hopes to build awareness of our carbon footprint and emphasize the importance of greenery in our lives to help alleviate and offset it.  This measuring tape translates our daily activities into units of carbon dioxide to remind us that our contemporary lifestyle has a high cost in environmental currency.
