Xenia P-USA, Oct. 5, 2013

Hi! My name is Xenia P. and I’m from California, USA. My Marine Biology teacher introduced this Carbon Footprint challenge to myself/classmates earlier this week. My total carbon footprint total is 12, 262 kg of CO2 per year compared to average footprint of 9727 kg.
Transportation: 4,855 kg
Home Energy: 3,094 kg
Food: 3,724 kg
Purchases: 589 kg
So as you can see the majority of my carbon footprint is transportation and that doesn’t really surprise me because I do go out a lot especially since I drive now. However, i do plan to reduce my carbon footprint regarding “transportation” by carpooling when I do need to go somewhere or traveling less. Hopefully by doing this I’m doing my part to help the environment.

Victoria S-USA, Oct. 3, 2013

Hi. My name is Victoria. I live in the USA.
Mine My Region
Transportation: 6106 kg 6387 kg
Home: 10281 kg 9385 kg
Food: 4227 kg 5551 kg
Purchases: 524 kg 2977 kg
I was surprised by my results. I thought I would be above average because of my use of electricity in my room. I keep my lights on in my room from after school until I go to bed because of homework. These lights are not energy efficient, so they are worse for the environment. This was my highest amount of carbon. I am also constantly on my computer for classwork and homework, I rarely ever fully shut it down. I would think this causes a lot of carbon. But not as much as i thought. The only category i had that was above average was my house. Overall my carbon footprint was less than the average person.

    My electricity was almost zero because of my LED light bulbs, yes they do cost a little more but it is well worth it in the end.

    Like LED Light bulbs, eco friendly house equipment is more expensive than its alternative products. But, as Ben B(USA) pointed out, it IS worth it in the end! However, a way to increase the use of bio friendly products is to reduce the price. Any ideas on that? Something to think about…

    You are right, LED lights are worth it in the end. They last much longer than incandescent so you would not have to buy and replace light bulbs as often. This also cuts down on the CO2 it takes to drive you to and from the store as well as saving you the trouble of changing light bulbs very often.

    Hi, my name is Kelly and I am from Texas. I have been introduced this and calculated my Carbon Footprint last week. I noticed the one thing that contributed the most to my carbon footprint was my transportation. It was 8939 kg and my region's average is 6387kg. I believe it was so high because I traveled a lot last year, going on 6 trips on plane, and several road trips. I also have a long drive to and from my school, which is 20 miles. I thought about what I could do differently to help reduce my carbon footprint and I came up with taking less flights, and road trips. I could also use better fuel in my cars. Hopefully after taking these actions my carbon footprint can be less than the average in my region.

Matthew J, Oct. 3, 2013

Hello, I’m Matt from Pennsylvania. I go to Sun Valley High School in Aston, Pa. My usage for transportation is 2994 kg, home energy is 6873 kg, food is 3717, purchases is 660 kg. One way I can change is use less energy at home like unplugging electronics like chargers when I am not using them to save energy.

    Good idea ! you can also turn off the lights for half day and that way u save energy too and help the planet once per month is fine if you would like to try it or whatever works for you.
