The First Step In Recovery Is Realizing There's A Problem With Your Personal Ecological Footprint

What is your ecological Footprint? Take the test here.

Even though I thought I was god's gift to small living. I found out I was really no better then a corporate pig. Below are my results. I found it interesting that most of us who consider ourselves environmentally conscious may really not be.

CATEGORY ACRES

FOOD 3.7


MOBILITY 2.5


SHELTER 12.4


GOODS/SERVICES 10.1


TOTAL FOOTPRINT 29



IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 2.4 ACRES PER PERSON.

WORLDWIDE, THERE EXIST 4.5 BIOLOGICALLY PRODUCTIVE ACRES PER PERSON.

IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE ME, WE WOULD NEED 6.4 PLANETS.
