My name is Justyna. I am from Poland. My total footprint is 5359kg of CO₂ per year. My result is less than my class total footprint result( 7677 kg CO₂). My lowest category is “Transport”. I am surprised but I live very close to my school so I don’t need to go to the center too often. My highest category is “Home” probably because I and my family spend a lot of time in home . I very like playing on my computer and watching anime so I spend there too much time. My house is big and we heat months of the year. We use fluorescent bulbs in whole my house so it is not bad :P

My name is Katarina and I live in small village near town Požega in Croatia. I calculated my footprint and it is 5210 kg per year which is below the average in Croatia. I thought that my transportation will be largest consumer of CO2 because I live far away from school and I need to travel by bus every day so I was suprised when I saw that I produce most of CO2 in home category. My consumption of CO2 in home is about 1000 higher than in my country. I think that it is because I live in village so I have big house and lot of rooms. My computer and TV are ON about 7-8 hours mostly because I have 5-years old sister and she watch cartoons on TV an computer at the same time so it spends lot of electricity together with with bulbs for light. In my house some bulbs are energy-saving and some of them are regular.
This footprint challenge change my way of looking on pollution problems in world. Now, I’m aware what are my mistakes and I will give my best to fix and change them, talk with my familiy about that so that we together reduce our CO2 footprint. I hope I’ll be succesful in that and become more responsible citizen of our wonferful world.
Best regards for people all around the world! :-)
Hello everyone! My name is Michelle, I am from the United State, and I live in Mooresville, North Carolina, and I am 17 years old. My carbon footprint is 10, 529kg of CO2 per year. My footprint is actually below average for my country, which surprised me. I thought I would be at least average, if not more, when it came to our overall footprints. My highest is my home energy, which is 5,151 kg of CO2 per year. This high number comes the water that we use and the amount of time that we use lights in our house. To decrease the size of my carbon footprint I could decrease the amount of time I spend in the shower, remembering to turn off lights when I leave a room, and only using the amount of lights necessary for the house.
For transportation, my average was about 366 kg and the average in my region for transportation was 3447 kg. For home my average was 4000 kg and the average in my region for home usage is 5065 kg. For food my average is 4213 kg, the average in my region for food is 2996 kg. My average was 850 kg,the average in my region is 1606 kg.
