Discussions Discussion Eco-Friendly
Paige M - USA, Oct. 10, 2013

I’m Paige and I live in Texas, and the carbon emissions being released here is immensely high. There are few ways to lower your carbon emission such as, driving safely, keeping your car in good condition, and carpooling with other kids to school. I carpool to school everyday because I live very far away from my school. Now knowing that I am reducing carbon emissions from Texas, I feel great about carpooling (even though the people in your carpool are annoying). (:

Also, did you know that by receiving and disposing of junk mail creates more greenhouse gas emissions than 2.8 million cars? Isn’t that crazy! One way we can reduce the amount of carbon emissions from junk mail is to pay a service that takes your names off of junk mail lists. Its a win-win situation for your parents and the world!

Kirah Pearson, May 8, 2013

My name is Kirah and I am 15. I live in Mooresville, North Carolina, United States. My Carbon Footprint is 22958 kg of CO₂ per year. It is above average for the total in North Carolina. The majority of my foot print came from the transportation and the things I do at home. I was very surprised because I thought I used less the the average. It really wasn’t what I expected because I thought I was cutting down on the amount of electric. I learned that I really need to watch what I do and be more eco-friendly. I think in the future I will try to un-plug my electronics and walk more.

Discussions Discussion Family footprint
Natalia C., April 25, 2012

Hello everyone! My family carbon footprint is lower than the average carbon footprint in my area. My highest carbon footprint area, however, turned out to be food. In the household, my family buys CFL light bulbs-which I prefer than regular light bulbs because it provides sufficient lighting in my room. Other eco-friendly solutions include, having a plastic bag reserved for used/empty bottles of water, walking/carpooling, unplugging electronics after I’ve finished using them and hand-washing dishes. I am satisfied with these efforts to save the environment because it is easy to do and it saves money.

    Those are some good ideas on “going green”. That's cool because our family does a lot of those things too so now I know I'm not the only one :-)

    I think that buying in bulk is often a good way to save money and to save trips back and forth to the mall or store. Of course, buying in bulk is often tricky when you are talking about food. But let's say that you need to purchase a simple daily item: headbands. If you buy them in bulk, you will not have to start up the car every time you need a replacement. And you might even save money due to the fact that most items seem to increase in cost as they move into the future.

Why not eat insects?

Marcel Dicke makes an appetizing case for adding insects to everyone’s diet. His message to squeamish chefs and foodies: delicacies like locusts and caterpillars compete with meat in flavor, nutrition and eco-friendliness.

    This guy makes a lot of sense. As world populations rise and it becomes impossible to produce meat for everyone's dietary needs, the western world will have to join the 80% of the world who has already incorporated insects as a part of their regular diet. But, I must say, I tried a dried flavored ant a few years ago and gagged. Mental weakness.

In Paris this week. Very impressed with the new eco-friendly light rail tram system that they’ve recently built. It services the southern part of the city superbly. Very impressive!

Nellmarie M-USA, Nov. 20, 2011

Another thing that many people use worldwide are eyeglasses, sunglasses, and contacts. What impact do they have on the environment? I’ll start with contacts. Most of the packaging that is used for the solution and the contact lenses are usually just thrown away without a thought about the environment. And what about eyeglasses and sunglasses? The material used to make the frames are not usually eco-friendly. I did find a site that sold eco-friendly eyewear. They are cheaper than most eyewear so I think this is a nice solution to find eyewear that is both friendly to our environment and our wallets!

The most eco-friendly commercial building ever, Seattle’s Cascadia Center, will be built by the Bullit Foundation, the six-story structure will relate to it’s surrounding almost like a tree: by producing its own energy and water and by not polluting. This living building will have a minimal carbon footprint, generating as much electricity as it consumes and relying almost exclusively on rain for its water.
