Hello my name is Devin Robinson, I am 16 years old & I live in the United States. I am from North Carolina & I have recently calculated my carbon footprint. My total carbon footprint is 13425 kg Co2 per year. I feel like this is a little close to the average compared to North Carolina(15918). My majority of my footprint came from my house, because of the lights. We keep our lights on in my house about 14 hours a day. I think my family could use less light if they do things in the afternoon where there is sunlight in the house and cut off the lights when they are not using it.

Hello my name is Daniel McArthur and I am 15 and I live in Huntersville North Carolina. In my carbon footprint my total is 16853 and the average for my region is 15918. The reason why this is ever is because the food. My food was 5666kg and the average is 3636 and the reason why is because we eat a lot of food cause we are growing and we are athletic and so we do burn it off. The way I’m going to minimize my food is by eating more healthier stuff that will hold me better like a hamburger and fruit instead a hamburger and other stuff.
Hello my name is Brittanie Hobbs, I am 14 years old & I live in the United States. I am from Mooresville, North Carolina & I have recently calculated my carbon footprint. My total carbon footprint is 9823 kg CO2 per year. I feel like that is way below average, I really did expect it to be some what higher. The majority of my footprint came from home & food. I know my family is bad about leaving lights on or things plugged in or the TV on a lot. So I wasn’t really surprised about that. We kind of eat out a lot but that’s only because we have sports so late at night & it’s just the fastest thing to do. But my parents have talked about cutting down on eating out. My family can help by shortening shower time & eating out.

Hello! my name is Andrea and i live in Italy.
My total carbon footprint is 9057kg of CO₂ per year, in italy the average footprint is 8181 kg. I haven’t got any solar panels and for the electricity i use hydroeletric energy because i live in the mountain near an hydroelectric power plant. I always go to school by bus because i live 15 km from school. The highest category is Home with 5564 kg because i live in the mountain and I keep the heating on for most of the year. A solution could be to use renewable energy such as solar panels to reduce energy consumation and costs, the problem is that their cost is very high and the government should encourage their installation.

My name is Carlo, I’m from the north of Italy.
To respect the environment does not need much; enough, pears example, change the light bulbs in our house with energy saving light bulbs, increase the insulation of the house and introduce new sources of energy such as solar panels or geothermal energy. In our area the environmental impact is very high, however, is trying to introduce renewable energy.
Hi! My name is Elisa and I live in the North of Italy. I have calculated my footprint recently and the results are the following:
Transportation: 1160 kg
Home: 2539 kg
Food: 1238 kg
Purchases: 294 kg
Transportation are lower than the average of my country but as I live in a little village in the mountain, I always have to take a coach or a car to go to school, to go shopping and to go out with my friends.
My home footprint is higher than the average of Italy. The reason is that in winter it is very cold so I must often use heating in my house.
Food is lower than average of Italy because I don’t eat a lot of meat and I prefer vegetables. In fact I have a garden where I grow them.
Purchases aren’t high because I don’t often go shopping because the shops are quite far from my house.
Hi! my name is Mattia, I live in the north of Italy.

I always take bus to get to school . The highest category is Home with 6567 kg because i keep the heating on for 8 months per year. I think i will use solar panels in the future to reduce carbon emission and save cost.
