Ergonomic Office Chair Home Office Desk Chair with Lumbar Support

The chair I use in my home office. A good balance of budget friendly price and quality. And my 18 month old loves looking in the reflective surface on the back, so there's that.

Formula: CF = distance × (1 / fuelEfficiency) × emissionFactor

To estimate the carbon footprint from car travel, the formula takes into account the total distance traveled, the car’s fuel efficiency (miles per gallon or kilometers per liter), and the emission factor representing the average CO2 emissions per unit of fuel consumed (in pounds or kilograms CO2 per gallon or liter). CF is the carbon footprint, distance is the distance driven, fuelEfficiency is the average fuel efficiency of the vehicle, and emissionFactor is the factor representing emissions. The result provides an estimation of the CO2 emissions associated with the distance traveled.
