    Compared to other students, Mia I can see that your carbon footprint is very low! Could you share the secret with us, are you very careful when it comes to habits that emit larger quantities of CO2 or you are a natural? :-)
  • Mia Sambolec Mia Sambolec May 7, 2013
    Haha, of course, my secret is going almost everywhere by bike or on foot. Because of the small town we live in, it's not a problem for me to do everything I want and need without using a car:)

    Patricija, what do you think, what has contributed to your carbon footprint the most? Can you change some of the bad habits and decrease the size of it?
  • Patricija Šobak Patricija Šobak May 1, 2013
    I think it's because of the majority of light bulbs we have in our house and the fact that we tend to leave them on even if we're not in the room. My “home” aspect of the footprint is about 3 times higher than my region's. I know we could decrease it's size,but you know what they say - old habits die hard :D

Karla Jaman, April 30, 2013

Hi! My name is Karla and I live in Varaždin, Croatia. I’m 17 years old. I decided to join this project because I find it very interesting and useful. My carbon footprint is 5651 kg of CO₂ per year compared to an average of 5736 kg for Croatia.

I think the reason why my carbon footprint is lower than an average one is mainly because I don’t use the transport vehicles. The only thing that did surprised me is higher total in “Home” category. I didn’t expect my results would be higher than the ones in my region so I should probably work on reducing that number. I will do that by turning the lights off when they are not needed or closing down the water flow while brushing my teeth. I also think that the biggest contribution of my carbon footprint is the “Purchases” section where my results are lower compared to the ones in my region.

    Wow, Carla! Your carbon footprint is very low! I wonder how you can maintain such a low average. My Carbon Footprint is quite high in comparison to other people in my location.
  • Karla Jaman Karla Jaman May 4, 2013
    Hi Yousra! :) My carbon footprint is low because I don't use any kind of the public transport vehicles. I usually walk or use my bike when I have to go somewhere. Varaždin is a small town so everything is near by.

Neven Resnik, April 30, 2013

Greetings earthlings. I am Neven from Varaždin, Croatia. Our class has participated in the carbon footpring calculation project. My footprint was about 4000 (lower than average) which surprised me, since I don’t try very hard, besides turning off the lights, water etc.

    Neven, nice work! Besides turning of lights, which other habits decreased the value of your carbon footprint? What were the amounts of CO2 emitted per category?

Petra Koljnrekaj, April 30, 2013

Hello! My name is Petra Koljnrekaj and I live in Varazdin, Croatia. I am 17 years old and decided to join this project, partly because my class decided that we should join, but also because I find it very interesting. My carbon footprint is 6270kg of CO2 per year, compared to an average of 5736 kg for Croatia, and 3791 kg (= 8358 lb) worldwide. I was very suprised that my carbon footprint is bigger than the average footprint of my country, particularly in the category home. This project made me think about how I behave and I will surely try to lower my carbon footprint. In my opinion this is a great project because everyone can see their carbon footprint and hopefully try to change it so we don’t do so much harm to our planet.
By categories my totals are:
Transportation: 937 kg
Home: 4439 kg
Food: 557 kg
Purchases: 337 kg

    Hey Petra. How come you do sports and don't eat a lot?
  • Petra Koljnrekaj Petra Koljnrekaj May 9, 2013
    I eat regularly, I just don't eat food with lots of calories and eat lots of fruit and vegetables ;)

    Maja, I can see that you have larger carbon footprint than the average in Croatia. Could you please share your thoughts, what did influence your carbon footprint the most? :-) Did the number surprise you?

Hello,my name is Andreja and i live in Varaždin. My biology teacher introduced me and my class to this project and I am very excited to participate in it.My carbon footprint is 14138 kg of CO₂ per year, compared to an average of 5736 kg for Croatia, and 3791 kg (= 8358 lb) worldwide.I was actually very surprised when I realised that my carbon footprint is that bigger than average in my country.I think it is mostly because of transportation,but also there are some other things I should work on todecrease my amout od carbon footprint.I have compared my result with my friend’s results and I am realising that there are lot of things I have to change about my carbon footprint and i’m more than ready to make that changes as soon as possible.I think this project is very usefull and I’m glad i was introdced with it and I think lot of people also should be to see how much damage we do to our planet and also to see how can we change that.

    14138 kg of CO₂! What did influence the size of your carbon footprint the most, transportation?
