Sylwia Wróbel, May 11, 2013

Hello;). My name is Sylwia. I’m from Poland. My total footprint is 9707 kg of CO2 per year. My result is higher than the average from Poland. My position compared to the class one is higher.
“Food” category is the lowest. I eat like a bird ;). “Home” category is the higher, bacause I use electronic equipment many hours a day. I can sort my rubbish and i can turn off my computer when I sleep to lower my carbon footprint. I will be taking long bath, beacuse i like that;).

Karlo L, May 11, 2013

Hi, I’m Karlo L, and I live in Croatia, Europe. I’m 16 years old and I’m really glad I participate in this interesting challenge. I have calculated my footprint and I found out that the total amount I release in atmosphere is 9094 kg of CO₂ per year. That is 3000 kg higher than the average in my area. The half of my total amount of CO₂ I release is at home. I decided to turn of my TV and computer more often and to replace some ordinary light bulbs with CFL ones. I’ll also try to reuse and recycle some paper and plastic bottles. I will try to print and write on both sides of the paper whenever its possible.
I was really surprised my carbon footprint was so high. I thought it will be about the same as the average in my country. I’m only happy that my Transportation categoy is low, but that’s mostly because I live cose to school and the center of town.
I’m looking forward to reading your posts and comments and I’m open to any kind of advice or critcism.

Karlo L

    Hey Karlo! I think that it is great your taking steps to lower your footprint! I also had a high home score, but I am taking similar actions to lower my score!

Tomek W, May 11, 2013

Hello! My name is Tomek. I am from Poland. My total footprint is 11710 kg CO2 per year.
My result is higher than the average for Poland. In my class total footprint result is 7677 kg CO₂ so my results is higher. My highest score is in category “home” because my house is big and We uses a lot of water and light. My lowest score is in category “purchases”. I am not surprised. I must turn off the light by lowering my carbon footprint. I’ll be watching a lot of TV and play on the computer because I like it.

    It's the same for me, my home footprint is the biggest because we have lots of light bulbs.

    Hi Tomek! :)
    You certainly need to change something because your footprint is way above the average. I like to play on comuter too and watch TV too but if you want to reduce your footprint you need to try hard and you should spend less time in front of computer and TV and go outside with your friends. (:

    hy tomek!
    Your footprint is really high you could reduce the hours playing computer games and watching TV to going out with friends and playing outside in the open air.

My lowest score is in category “purchases”. I am not surprised. My highest score is in category “home” because we uses a lot of water. I take shorter showers to lower my carbon footprint. I don’t want to give up use the computer, because I very like play on the computer and surf the net.

    Hi Sandra! Using less water always helps! I also like the boardgame idea. I too spend a lot of time on the computer, but I'm trying to take more breaks!

Daria Pastucha, May 11, 2013

Hello, I’m Daria. I`m 17. and I’m from Poland. My total carbon footprint 13536 lb of CO2.My footprint would be about the same as the average person in
Poland, and the world. My total footprint results are higher than in my average and a bit higher than my class results. The lowest category is “purchases” and I’m not suprised about that because don`t buy so much clothes. The highest category is “home.In my house we used coal,whitch emits a lots of CO2
In my opinion I can sort the garbage. I can change the light bulb, I dont want to change the amount of time spent in the shower. The shower is a kind of rest for me. I do`nt want to sacrifice the rest of the environment

    I think you should stop using coal and try to use something else. I like to take long shower too;) and I don't want to give up this.

Wioletta W-Poland, May 11, 2013

Hello! My name is Wioletta and I come from Poland. My total footprint is 5866 kg of CO₂ per year, compared to an average of 6526 kg for Poland. My results are lower than my class results. The lowest category is ‘Purchases’. I’m surprised because I often buy new things. The highest category is ‘Home’. It doesn’t suprise me too because me and my family spend a lot of time in the house. Also it is high because my house is heated by a central heating in the basement 5 months out of the year. We use electronic equipment many hours a day, bulbs light up most of a day. We use more incandescent bulbs than fluorescent bulbs. I know, it isn’t good. I think my family can spend more relaxing time outside than e.g. on the Internet or Tv.

    I agree with you. My family and me spend to much time in house too and probably we should spend more time outside. If you and your family go outside or on vacation somewhere like Croatia you won't spend so much electricity like on Internet, TV or light bulbs like when you are home. :)
  • Shaneikiah Bickham Shaneikiah Bickham May 13, 2013
    I have the same issue with the light bulbs, central heating, and the electronic equipment. I think you should try to use the energy saving light bulbs and also try to only use the room with the least amount of light bulbs while studying or doing your work. I think you might also want to try the solar chargers for your computer, phone, and the other electronic devices.
  • Wioletta W-Poland Wioletta W-Poland May 13, 2013
    You're right Katarina. I have to convince my parents to go on holiday, for example, in Croatia;) Shaneikiah, I think that the solar chargers for your computer, phone, and the other electronic devices are very good idea. Greetings :)

Ramy Dabbour, May 10, 2013

Hello, I am Ramy Dabbour. I live in Cairo, Egypt. My total carbon footprint is 7360 kg, which is higher than the average footprint for Egypt of 3353 kg and the world average of 3791 kg. My highest category was “home” - 3299 kg, compared to Egypt’s average of 533 kg, and my lowest category was “purchases” - 193 kg, compared to the regional average of 203 kg. I am not satisfied with the result, and I want to lower it, but I am not surprised at all that it is what it is. I might not purchase much or eat much but I do use too much electricity. I should start turning off electric lights when I do not use them. I am beginning to think more and more that if people truly seek change that will save the environment, they must realize that the source of this problem is with the general attitude of people that excessively values useless technology.

    Hay Ramy, I have to say I am actually really surprised that the total number of carbon footprint in egypt is so low. In Canada it is way higher:o
    But I think your attitude to carbon footprint is the first step for a change and to make things better in the future! :)
  • Tomek W Tomek W May 11, 2013
    I agree with the previous speaker, I am also surprised that CO2 emissions are so low in Egypt
  • Onassis G Onassis G May 17, 2013
    Hi Ramy, I like how you want to try to change your ways and try and help the environment. Here are some types for you to save more energy! Turn off the light when you are not in that room. Make sure you have no leaky fascist and unplug all electronics when not being used.

Zuzanna Błatoń, May 10, 2013

Hi everybody! I’m Susie and I’m from Poland. I think that my total footprint result compared to my country is much more lower. However, my position compared to my class is higher and honesty. I really do not know why! My lowest category is food. I considered if it surprised me, but later I came to the conclusion, that I’m on a diet my whole life so I just buy less food than the others. My highest category is transport and it is obvious, because I travel by bus a few times a day. I don’t know what I could do to lower my carbon footprint. Maybe I take a bath too long and I should reduce the time bathing? Yeah, I think I will do so. There is one thing that I worry about - I don’t know what makes my result high at all.
Greetings! ;)

    Hi Susie!
    My lowest category is purchase and my highest is food. i don't eat healthy food.
    I think your attitude to carbon footprint is the first step for a change and to make things better in the future! ;D
  • Gabriella Massaro Gabriella Massaro May 14, 2013
    Hi Susie and Francesca,
    It's funny, my lowest was also purchases but food was a close second! I think that taking shorter showers is something I need to work on too, you never realize how long they are! If only more people could realize this.

Agnieszka T-Poland, May 10, 2013

Hello, my name is Agnieszka. I’m a 17 years old student from Poland. My total footprint result (6045 kg) compared to the average one in my country (6526 kg) is a bit lower. I was surprised because I thought my result will be better, because in my house most of our light bulbs are energy-saving, and we sort rubbish. Now i see it is not sufficient to protect the environment. I think it is the time to make some changes, but i don’t know what I could do, because my highest score is in category “home” (4449 kg, the average in my region is 2858 kg). I think it is because my house is heated with coal over 6 months in a year, besides in my house are living many people too, so it will be hard to change something. My lowest category is ”purchases” (126 kg, the average in my region is 463 kg) i thing it is a good result. It may be due to the fact that I don’t buy things i don’t need, only the necessary stuff.

    There are alternatives to coal that you can use for heating. Try natural gas. Also, it could be an advantage to live with many people, because the output of carbon of the house itself would be the result of the actions of many people and not only one person. This works the same way carpooling works; you would take advantage of the space while releasing the same amount of carbon.

Mikayla Hubel, May 10, 2013

Being from the US, I fully expected our average totals to be way higher than places I checked around the world. I was also surprised how big the difference was from Michigan the California, almost 4000Kg, and it’s just on the other side of the country. I compared our averages to some in Stockholm, and was not surprised that they were lower than ours being that Sweden is one of the ‘greenest’ countries. In Italy, the transportation was higher than ours, and this confused me because we live in a rural community and I was expecting our transportation footprint to be higher than the footprint in Pisa, Italy.

    My carbon footprint of transport is also lower than the other region of my country. I was really surprised it!
