I thought I'd use about 3 earths, but I turned out to use 4.2, so it was more than I expected. I didn't realize that how much meat and dairy I ate mattered. I LOVE cheese and eat meat a few time a week and pork and chicken. I guess I might cut down on some of that stuff since it will be healthier for me AND the planet. It was pretty cool to do. I want to ask my parents how much we really spend on gas and electric so I can do it again and see if it changes.

My ecological footprint was more than i expected. The most interesting aboutthe qwuestions on this quiz was that it asked about the dairy consumed, wich means that dairy affects the earths needed. What was more interesting was that i used 50% of services.I will try top use public transportation to reduce the amount of earths needed.

i thought i was going to use 3 earths because i dont really use stuff.the most intresting question was about the food.to stop using energy and stop buying stuff.

i thought i used like 4 earths but it ended up to be 3.5 witch is good but i love food in packaged like pizza,zebra cakes and junk food lol but i never knew gas and the number of people living in your home affected your footprint.Changes i would make would be less packaged food and less gas and electricity using.

My ecological footprint was more than I really expected. The most interesting about this quiz was that it asked about how much money did my family pay for gas.This surprised me since the most I thought I used in my house was food, but it turns out i use 50% of services ! I think from now on i will change using my computer and microwave less even tho i enjoy it alot !

I expected less acres. The most interesting question was when they asked me how many people live in my house. It was surprising how many earths I had, I had 4.1 earths. I will recycle more stuff. It was a nice experience of finding this about my footprint because now I know what things affect or make my footprint.
