Every minute of showering uses 0.45 CO2 lbs. This means that an extra 7 minutes of showering would emit 3.15 CO2 lbs. 0.45 CO2 lbs per minute x 7 = 3.15 CO2 LBSAssuming a person showers an extra 7 minutes everyday, we multiply 3.15 CO2 lbs by 365 to see the amount of CO2 per year. 3.15 CO2 lbs x 365 = 1,149.75 CO2 lbs per month To change from CO2 lbs to metric tons we multiply 1,149.75 CO2 lbs by the conversion factor .0005. This gives us 0.5748 metric tons per year. 1,149.75 CO2 lbs x 0.0005 = 0.574875 metric tons per year This means over 7 years the average person would emit 0.574875 metric tons per year x 7 years = 4.024 MT CO2
