Hello everyone. My name is Greta and I am Italian. I think by now we all have at least one phone and many other technological objects such as video games, computers…. In my opinion they are’nt necessary, but they are becoming affected. We should learn to think more about what we really need not always what we want at all costs. It is also true that today the mobile phone is a need because it is easier to keep in touch with the people and also the presence of the internet on the phone is a good thing because it gives you the opportunity to be connected with the world at any time of the day. What I mean is that we don’t keep a cell phone and change it only when it breaks but now we change it according to the new trend and fashion.

I think getting the latest technology is a want, not a need, unless for example your old phone or mp3 player etc. don’t work anymore! If they still work you shouldn’t be getting new stuff when it’s not necessary. Although I have to say the newer the technology is the more eco-friendly it tends to be (Energy star, etc.)
Hello my name in Michele I’m from Italy and I’m from Italy and I’m 17. My total footprint is 39484 kg/CO2 per year. Don’t worry this is higher compared to the average Italian footprint because I live in a hotel. My home footprint is higher than my Region because I live in a mountain hotel and I use a lot of fossil fuels for heating because it is cold six months per year and we use a lot of woods. A possible solution is to change fossil fuels for heating system with another eco-sustainable energy, for example solar energy and hydropower.
Hi! I’m Mattia and I live in Cedegolo, Italy.
In this time, lots of teenagers, buy a new mobile, every year. I also would like to buy the last Apple’s smart phone but it is needlees because I’ve a mobile that works. I know that I-phone 5 is more trendy but why buy a new telephone? Besides I-phone 5 costs a lot of money and I think that it isn’t correctly to spend lots of money to buy a new mobile. One solution can be to buy a new mobile every two or three years and also if it isn’t the last model.
The technology is definitely both a desire and a need. The technology makes life much easier and communication, but the desire to have the latest technology is definitely more of a want than a necessity. If someone already has a phone or a computer, there is no real need to get the latest gadget, because what he or she should be good enough. to avoid you could not keep buying new models of mobile phones.
Hi, I’m Mattia, I live in Italy. My carbon footprint about transportation is very high because in my town there aren’t a lot of public transportation; there aren’t many buses, there aren’t underground stations and there is just one train. I live in the mountain and I use heating six months a year. People in my town use to recycle. I use electric energy and natural gas in my house, I haven’t got any solar panels. All cars work by petrol fuel and they pollute a lot! The mountain is cleanest than city! Have you got any suggestions to decrease my carbon footprint?
