My name is Marko. I live in a small town named Kutjevo,Croatia.
When I was told that I have the opportunity to take part in a international project ,the first of its kind in Croatia, I was really excited.At first I saw it just as a new and fun way to interact with other people from different parts of the world. Then I took the Carbon Footprint test, thinking that I’m going to get a low percentage compared to an average person because I live in a really small town.The result shocked me,my footprint was way over the average carbon use in my country.Now I am more conscious and aware of the things I need to do to reduce my carbon emission and help our home,the Earth.
I also analysed my results and most of the sections were just a little above average, while the transportation section was almost tripled in comparison to the average carbon use.Sadly, that is the only section I can’t influence. I live about 20 km from school and have to take the bus everyday, so each day I drive about 40 km.The carbon emissions are huge.
I advise everyone to take the Carbon Footprint test and find out in which ways you are harming the Earth and learn how you can help.
