My name is Francesca; I live in a small village in the north of Italy.
This village and the towns nearby are beautiful because they are small and clean. we don’t have the problem of air pollution and the quality of life is good.
anyway I was impressed by my carbon food print in HOME and TRASPORTATION categories, Maybe because my village is far from other towns and I need to use my car or bus to go shopping or school; another important pollutant is heating in winter as my village is in the mountain.
My carbon footprint is the following:
TRASPORTATION: 1735 kg
HOME: 3225 kg
FOOD: 3634 kg
PUNCHASE: 549 kg
TOTAL: 9161 kg

Good evening to the interwebs! I am Will Crolla, my carbon footprint is 11360 kg of CO₂ per year, while the average Onatian’s is 12018 kg and 3791 kg worldwide. My highest category was my transportation at 4883 kg. My other categories were home at 3881 kg, food at 2342, and purchases at 264 kg.
Hi, my name is Rebecca and my total carbon footprint is 11560 kg. The average footprint in Ontario is 12000 kg. I am under the average, transportation was my highest out of all the four categories, 5645 kg. For home/energy 3592 kg, food 1622 kg and 601 kg for purchases. I was surprised about the amount CO2 released from transportation, but I live further away from the school.
Hello my name is Frank and I live in Philadelphia. This project was very interesting because I did not know that people could contaminate so much. Different countries contaminate more or less depending but in my opinion the country that contaminates the most is America. My biggest contamination problem provoked by me is transportation. I am from another country so when I travel we use a lot of gas and they are very long trips. During the next years I will not contaminate as much because I won’t travel.
Hi, my name is Katie,
For my carbon footprint I did not except a specific number to have as my total carbon footprint. For my transportation: 715kg, Home: 34,006kg, Food: 2,991 and Purchases: 516kg. My highest section was home, for home I can try to recycle the best that I can, and lower the home section for my footprint. Shockingly, my purchases were lower then I expected them to be. Personally I thought that the total amount of money that I spend a year for clothes was a higher number. Food was lower than average, and finally for my transportation, I could try my best to bike or walk to shorter distance places instead of being driven there.
Hi my name is Onassis G. and I’m so exited to be doing an international project! I’m 14 years old and in 8th grade at AIM Academy. As a young teenager I thought my carbine footprint was going to be way higher then the average, but to my surprise I was just under the average to the people of Pennsylvania. The average person in Pennsylvania uses 20301 kg. My total turned out to only be 19936 kg. For transportation the average person in Pennsylvania uses 5337 kg. I use 8579, which is 3242 kg more then what I should be using. For home the average person in Pennsylvania uses 7841 kg. I only use 4735 kg, which is 3106 kg less, then the average person in Pennsylvania. For food the average person in Pennsylvania uses 4638 kg. I use 6222 kg, which is over the average by 1584 kg. For purchases the average person in Pennsylvania uses 2486 kg. I got 401 kg, which is 2085 kg under the average. I hope that I by seeing everyone’s post they can help me lower my score some more to help save our environment!
My name is davide cervelli, I’m 16 years old, I’m a student at IIS Meneghini Secondary School in Edolo, a small town in the north of Italy. My total carbon footprint is 8068 kg of CO₂ per year, in italy the average footprint is 8181 kg. In my house there aren’t any solar panels and for the electricity I use idroeletric energy. I always walk to school.
The home is 4136 because the reason is that in winter it is very cold and I use a lot ot woods for heat.
