Hey! My name is Dora Dubravec and I’m from Varaždin, Croatia. I’m 18 years old and I’m doing this Carbon Footprint challenge with my IB Biology class.
My carbon footprint total is:
Me / My Region:
Transportation: 327 kg / 874 kg
Home: 3149 kg / 1956 kg
Food: 3432 kg / 2308 kg
Purchases: 64 kg / 597 kg
Total: 6973 kg of CO₂ per year, compared to an average of 5736 kg for Croatia, and 3791 kg (= 8358 lb) worldwide.
The biggest problem for me is my home. We have a big house and a horrible heating system, so during the winter we use a lot of energy for heating.
Also, food? I guess I eat too much.
I’ll make sure my parents solve the heating problem, and I’ll start eating less! (Jokey jokey. Let’s be real: I won’t.)
