Hi,I’m Andrea Bonomelli, I’m 16 years old and recently I calculate my footprint. It is 8057 kg CO2 per year.For home is 4450 Kg CO2 because I live in a small village in a nord of Italy and the temperature is cold and I need much energy for the home heating, for food is 1232 Kg CO2 , for transportation is 1961 Kg CO2 more than my region because I live in a mountain region and there aren’t a lot of public transportation. For purchases is 414 Kg CO2,less than my region.
I’d like to decrease my carbon footprint, especially in transport.
Hey my name is Anneke and I live in Pennsylvania in the United States. I’m 17 years old and I travel to school by car or by bus. I realize that my footprint is high but I don’t know many ways to improve it.
My total carbon footprint is 9.252 kg which is lower than the average for the Unted States.
Transportation: 4,516 kg
Home: 3,565 kg (In my house, we use natural gas to heat our house)
Food: 807 kg
Purchases: 364 kg
Hey all, I’m Vinny from the U.S, specifically doylestown Pennsylvania. My carbon footprint is 27,333kg per year and is much higher than the average. I’m highly embarrassed by my actions. I want to make a positive impact in my country, and i must change my daily habits to meet my goals.
Hey to everyone! My name is Josh and i live in Pennsylvania and go to Central Bucks West Highschool. My total footprint came out to be 14,921 kg of CO2 per year. The average for my State is 20,301 kg per. MY transportation is 887 kg, my home is 6,213 kg, my food is 7189 kg, and my purchases are 631 kg. I expected my footprint to be alot more then it was, but mine is still high and needs to be lowered by a good amount. I think that i eat alot more then the average person in my region and maybe i could cut back on that. Also i use quite alot of energy at my home, and i could solve this problem by being more conservative with the lights in the house, the tv, and turning off appliances when i am not using them. Anyways i have alot to work on and think this project is producitve and that everyone should get involved and make the earth awesomer to live on! Peace to all people.
Hey everyone, I’m Caitlyn Black from United States and I live in Pennsylvania. I never gave any thought to how much of an impact I have on the enviroment, it’s crazy how only one person, me, can have such a big effect. My total carbon footprint is 12, 030 (Transportation: 924 kg, Home: 9265 kg, Food: 1522, Purchases: 319). I feel bad, I feel like I’m taking advantage of the earth and everything it provides me and I want to change. I’m 17 years old and I got my first car a couple months ago. I feel as though any car that runs of gasoline is a waste of money, considering the fact that gas will be gone is about 30 years if we continue stealing it from the ground. I dont want to eat dairy as much, because of how many pollutants it puts into the air that we are breathing. It’s scary just knowing my own carbon footprint, but what about the people who have more than me? Even averaging everyone’s footprint and multiplying it by EVERYONE on the planet….that’s a lot of carbon and pollutants.
Hey all, I’m Dylan from Doylestown, Pennsylvania! My footprint is significantly lower than the PA average - 8535 kg instead of the average of 20301 kg, but I’m still embarrassed by how high my own number is.
Comparing myself to averages of other countries, I see that my 8k kg of carbon usage is not anything low enough to brag about - in fact, it’s more something to be ashamed about. The fact that there are some classes in Europe who’s average is lower than my own number - not even just lower than the PA average - is absolutely something that makes me worry about us in the US.
My number is likely as low as it is because I purchase so little (330 kg usage) - I don’t care to shop often, and wear my clothes until they are unwearable from wear-and-tear. The biggest hit to my footprint is my home usage at 3912 kg, which is because a lot of my time at home is spent on the computer.
I’m interested how other countries manage to get their averages so low. I consider myself an environmental activist, yet i realize that I am hypcritical in consuming as much as I do. Is environmental friendliness actively pressed in classes with such low averages, or is it something that you do naturally? If naturally, do you think it’s because you were raised to be so friendly to the Earth? I wasn’t really raised to appreciate the planet, but I feel like doing so would mean I would be more actively green than I am now.
Hi I’m Caitlyn from the US and I recently calculated my carbon footprint. My results were 2581 for transportation, 5337 for my region, 12820 for my home, and the average for my region is 7841. For food my amount was 2205 and my region was 4638, and my purchases were 732 and my region was 2486.So overall my personal scores were all under the average scores from my region. My total was 18339 kg of CO₂ per year, the average of my region is 20301 kg for Pennsylvania, USA. There are many ways that I could potentially reduce my carbon footprint.
