Hi my name is Molly and my total Carbon Footprint was 19750kg. For transportation I got 6870kg, for Home I got 8610kg, for food I got 3455kg, and finally for purchases I got 815kg. I was surprised that my total was under the average for Pennsylvania. The thing that I was most surprised at though was my purchases. I thought that I buy a lot but I guess not! My average purchase compared to other in my region were no where near the same! I think that one way I could lower my transportation is if I walked or biked to some of the places I go to since they aren’t far at all.

My Name is Arman M and my total footprint is 22693 kg of co2. Transportation is 11321 kg and its about 5000 kg more than the average. Home is 9176 kg and more than 2000 kg more than the average. Food is 1678 kg and almost 3000 kg less than the average. Purchases are 518 kg and almost 2000 kg less than the average. The total average for Pennsylvania is 20301 and it is over than the average. I wasn’t that surprise it was more than the average but I was more surprise it was 2392 kg more than the average. I thought it would be little bit over by 200 kg to 1000 kg more. I think that I don’t travel as much as other people but my travel number is 11321 is about 5000 more than the average. And the same thing happens with the house as the travel for kg co2 for being way more than average and not being about the same average. I think that I should lower the house and the traveling kg co2 to help the environment.
Hello my Name is Oliver B my carbon footprint was 13,014 for Transportation 3,303 for Home 5,200 for Food 590 for Purchase. I was way over for Transportation and really under for purchases the others were about the same. I wasn’t really surprised that my transportation was high because I travel so much everyday. I was really surprised that my Home and Food were lower than the average. I should try to go less places to bring down my transportation this would lower my carbon footprint.
My name is Justyna. I am from Poland. My total footprint is 5359kg of CO₂ per year. My result is less than my class total footprint result( 7677 kg CO₂). My lowest category is “Transport”. I am surprised but I live very close to my school so I don’t need to go to the center too often. My highest category is “Home” probably because I and my family spend a lot of time in home . I very like playing on my computer and watching anime so I spend there too much time. My house is big and we heat months of the year. We use fluorescent bulbs in whole my house so it is not bad :P
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;).
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.
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.
Hello name is Abdelrahman Elfandi, I currently live in Egypt and I have a considerably low footprint if compared to others in my class. My total carbon footprint is 10941 kg, and that may seem high because the average amount for Egypt is 3353 kg which is low. I use the most amount of carbon in the food category (which is odd because I am not obese and don’t feel like I eat that much) and it’s 4452 kg, and the lowest amount of carbon I use is in the purchases category and it’s 158 kg.
