Hello, my name is Ramy, I come from Cairo, Egypt. I am half Egyptian and half Dutch and i go to the American International School in Cairo. My Carbon Footprint unfortunately was a lot above average, almost three times the average in Egypt. When I first found my Carbon Footprint I was very surprised at the amount of carbon I produce every year. I was very disturbed by the extent that I contribute to the Carbon released into the atmosphere yearly. I learned that although I think I am living quite a “green” lifestyle my carbon records are far from where I want them to be. I learned that most of my Carbon Footprint is made up of transportation. I think this is due to the fact that I live quite far from all my usual destinations. Therefore from now on I could carpool more or use public transportation more in order to reduce my CF. Also instead of travelling by plane during my vacations I could try to stick to more local destinations.

My Name is Joey DeBerardino, I live in Mooresville, North Carolina, U.S.A. I am 15 years old. My carbon footprint is 19,210. It was below average. The biggest part of my carbon footprint was home. I was surprised with how high my carbon footprint was. My results were not what I expected. To reduce this I will turn off lights when we are not using them.
My Carbon footprint was lower than i thought it would be, my total was 9921, the majority was the things in my home.
I thought the total would be higher, and i should start taking shorter showers and turn off lights that i don’t use, and unplug things.

My names id DeSio Henry and I am 16 years old. I live in Mooresville, North Carolina. My carbon footprint calculations were a little above average at 17314. I was kinda surprised that it was over because I didn’t think I did much. My biggest part of my footprint was the transportation. For the future I would try to stop the excessive driving and try to be more responsible on what I’m doing.
My name is Liz Williams, I am 14 years old. I live in Mooresville, North Carolina. My carbon foot print is 9751 which is below average. My transportation is 573, it isn’t that high because i have never been on a plane. My home energy is 6678, that is high because we keep our lights on all the time. My food is 1833 i don’t think it is that high. My purchases are 667, i don’t really go shopping a lot so that’s why that one is pretty low. :)
My name is Chase. I live in North Carolina.
My carbon footprint was 15168 kg of CO₂ per year compared to the 15918 kg of CO₂ per year.
Transportation - 1279
Home - 8490
Food - 3809
Purchases - 1590
My home has the most because we leave our lights and T.Vs on most of the day.
Hi , I live in the north of Italy , I’m Giorgio and I calculated my carbon footprint is the following :
Transportation=2478 kg , more because i don’t use a public transport
Home=3934 kg , more than my region because I use a lot of heating
Food=2250 kg , less than my region
Purchases=228 kg , less than my region
My region carbon footprint:
Transportation =1948 kg
Hi ! I’m Eleonora, I’m 17 years old and I live in a small village in the north of Italy. I have recently calculated my carbon footprint. My total footprint is 7642 Kg of CO2 per year compared to an average of 8181 kg for Italy.
My calculations came out as:
Transportation : 1641
Food : 2203
Purchases : 545
My house footprint is higher than other regions because I live in the mountain and I use the heating 7 months per year.
Other categories are low than my region because I have an eye of regard for pollution, consumptions and for healthy life.
Hello, my name is Federico and I’m from Italy. I calculated my footprint and I released that my total footprint is 8181 kg of CO₂ per year. I also released that my impact is very high in the home category. I now have to pay attention to improve my habits. Even so I’m very happy to take part to this!!
