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.

Hi again,my name is Martin and I live in Varazdin,Croatia.My total carbon footprint was 5553 kg of CO2.That’s less than the average Croatian.For transporation I use my bike and my legs,so I don’t produce carbon emission in that field.I am not a vegetarian,I eat meat and meat has a large carbon footprint.When I go in purchase I always use the same bag and no plastic bags which other people get in stores.This discussion showed me how to produce less carbon emission and I’m glad that I was bellow average in Croatia.It’s a great project and I think that people in this project will stimulate other people to join in this project and make the Earth a better place for living.Bye ;)
Hi, my name is Eliana and I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. My total footprint is 11,271 kg of CO2 per year. That’s a lot less than the average Pennsylvanian who uses 20,301 kg but is still a lot more than the worldwide average 3,791 kg. For transportation I use 4,655 kg while the regions average is 5,337 kg. At home I use 4,952 kg of CO2 but the average Pennsylvanian uses 7,841 kg of CO2. With food my number is 1,168, which is a lot lower than the average 4,638 because I’m vegetarian and meat has a large Carbon footprint. Purchases are also a lot less my number is 496 kg and the average Pennsylvanian uses 2,486 kg. One area I can work to lower my carbon footprint is transportation by taking public transportation and driving less. Seeing what other people around the world are doing to lessen their carbon footprint is inspiring and will show me more ways I can in my daily life.
Hi, my name is Tziporah and I live in Philadelphia, PA. Based on my input, my total footprint is 17704 kg of CO₂ per year, compared to an average of 20301 kg for Pennsylvania, USA. I have 8381 kg for transportation. For home my I have 6315 kg. I have 1748 kg for food. For purchases I have 1261 kg. I think that my transportation score is so high because my mother’s car is not as energy efficient as other cars are. My home score is also high because I think that I leave appliances on and don’t unplug them. My food score is low because I am vegetarian and eat no meat. I think that my purchase score is high because I buy new things a lot of the time.
Hello, my name is Sam. I live in the USA in Pennsylvania. The school I go to is AIM Academy. The school is for dyslexia students. My carbon footprint is 33854 kg per year. The reason why I believe my footprint so high is because as a family we are not the most green but we are no really bad. My transportation footprint is 11294 kg. The reason why I believe it is so high is because I travel far to school almost everyday and I do not have a hybrid or an electric car. Here is my home footprint 17769 kg her is also my food 3975 kg and my home 816 kg. The reason why my footprint is so big is because in America we tend to use more then other countries so I was not surprised on my carbon footprint. A way I think I could make my footprint smaller is to get better at recycling.
