Hey, my name is Bilal, I live in Cairo, Egypt. My carbon footprint is way more than the average carbon footprint of Egypt. Before doing the survey I thought that my carbon footprint was going to be a bit over the average of my country, and then I noticed that the amount of carbon dioxide I release into the atmosphere through only my transport is almost as much as the overall average of carbon dioxide released in my country per person. I feel sort of ashamed that I, a 14 year old, am already polluting so much through ways that I never thought would really impact the atmosphere. My use of electricity is something i’m sure I can reduce. I constantly leave my TV on and leave chargers plugged in, even over night. I’m sure if I could avoid using excess electricity I could decrease my annual carbon footprint greatly.

Hello my name is Miguel Mendoza, I am 15 years old and I live in Mooresville, North Carolina. My carbon footprint surprisingly was a below average of 9066kg of C02 per year. Two biggest ones where food 3685kg and home 3500kg. The things I will do to lower these two is probably eat a little less and turning off power and switching to better eco friendly brands like energy star.
Personally, I am not a big fan of technology, but then again I use it a lot. Not because I like it, just because it became “a need”. I need to have all sorts of information available on the Internet because all of a sudden books are not enough. Also, it helps me with variety of things that are not related to school but to my personal life. It is quick and easy way of finding anything I am looking for, but the bad side of it is that not everything found on the Internet is correct.. What’s the deal with those new mobile phones, smartphones? I have one and I can tell you that nobody needs all of these apps that we have today. Mobile phone should just be used for easier communication with people, basically for calls and perhaps sending messages. With all those things we have today, I guess we are becoming stupid people with smart phones.. The thing with TV today is that we have too many channels, for example I have approximately 500 of them and I watch maybe 10 of all. Sometimes I can’t find anything on those 500 channels because of commercials or just boring stuff that shows at that moment. So, there you have it, the TV becomes useless. It can’t even fulfill his only purpose, to entertain. In the end, I’d like to say this: Yes, we obviously want to be swamped with technology and no, we don’t need it. It’s just that we evolved so much that technology became a need, when it’s actually not. We got used to technology and now we can’t live without it anymore.
Hi my name is Bailey I’m 14 years old and from the United States,
My total carbon foot print was 18997 kg of CO₂ per year. In America the average use is 15918 kg of CO₂ per year. I thought my average would be close to the average American but it was actually higher. I believe mine was higher because of our home uses. We do not usually turn lights off nor unplug things when they are not being used. The rest of my information is…..
Hello my name is Eric Wiggins. I am a 15 years old who lives in the United States. I am from Mooresville, North Carolina and I have recently calculated my carbon footprint.
My total carbon footprint is,13,242 kg of CO2 per year. My total footprint is below average, but I expected it to be higher. The majority of my footprint came from my house. This surprises me because I thought I did a good job of doing things to cut down on the power used. I will try to shorten my showers and turn off the lights as much as possible.
Hello, my name is Ramy, I come from Cairo, Egypt. I am half Egyptian and half Dutch and i go to the American International School in Cairo. My Carbon Footprint unfortunately was a lot above average, almost three times the average in Egypt. When I first found my Carbon Footprint I was very surprised at the amount of carbon I produce every year. I was very disturbed by the extent that I contribute to the Carbon released into the atmosphere yearly. I learned that although I think I am living quite a “green” lifestyle my carbon records are far from where I want them to be. I learned that most of my Carbon Footprint is made up of transportation. I think this is due to the fact that I live quite far from all my usual destinations. Therefore from now on I could carpool more or use public transportation more in order to reduce my CF. Also instead of travelling by plane during my vacations I could try to stick to more local destinations.
My Name is Joey DeBerardino, I live in Mooresville, North Carolina, U.S.A. I am 15 years old. My carbon footprint is 19,210. It was below average. The biggest part of my carbon footprint was home. I was surprised with how high my carbon footprint was. My results were not what I expected. To reduce this I will turn off lights when we are not using them.
My Carbon footprint was lower than i thought it would be, my total was 9921, the majority was the things in my home.
I thought the total would be higher, and i should start taking shorter showers and turn off lights that i don’t use, and unplug things.
Hi my name is Jeremy i live in North Carolina mooresville my carbon footprint was 14,123 transportation 1137 home 8,154 food 2,139 purchases 3,000 my home and my family keep the light on in our house a lot sometimes my family members when we walk out of our house we don’t turn off the TV another is long showers
My names id DeSio Henry and I am 16 years old. I live in Mooresville, North Carolina. My carbon footprint calculations were a little above average at 17314. I was kinda surprised that it was over because I didn’t think I did much. My biggest part of my footprint was the transportation. For the future I would try to stop the excessive driving and try to be more responsible on what I’m doing.
