The Real Costs

This was my first project assisting Michael Mandiberg during college. I did a fair amount of research, Javascript, and Front-end development.

The Real Costs is a Firefox plug-in that inserts emissions data into travel related e-commerce websites. The first version adds CO2 emissions information to airfare websites such as Orbitz.com, United.com, Delta.com, etc. Following versions will work with car directions, car rental, and shipping websites. Think of it like the nutritional information labeling on the back of food… except for emissions.
