My carbon footprint was 11054 kg of CO₂ per year, compared to an average of 20301 kg for Pennsylvania. I thought that my carbon footprint would be about the same as the average person in PA. I was about half the average person in PA. One improvement I could make is I could use reusable bags when shopping. I could also unplug electronics when I am not using them.

Hi, my name is Diego, I’m 17 years old.
I live in a small village in the north of Italy, called Ono San Pietro.
In my village there’s not a big pollution.
my total carbon footprint is 9519 kg of Co2 per year.
the average in my region is 8181 kg.
I live 20 km from school and use bus to go to school.
We should work on how to reduce our consumptions in each area for example use the alternative energy and recycle.
I found this project interesting and usefull.
My name is Davide, i’m 18 years old, i’m a student at IIS Meneghini Secondary school in Edolo, a small town in the north of Italy. My total carbon footprint is 11416 kg of CO2 per year, in Italy the average footprint is 8181 kg. In my house there aren’t solar panels. I always go to school by car and i like playing on my computer and watching some video. We use fluorescent bulbs in whole my house so it is not bad.
My name is Pietro and I’m 17 years old.

My total footprint is 10170 kg of CO2 per year. My result is more than the average of Italy (8181
My highest category is “Home” probably because my family and I spend a lot of time at home. My house is quite big and we heat 6 months per year.
I’d like to reduce my carbon footprint but solar panels are very expensive, we don’t have nuclear plants in Italy, so the cheapest way of heating is wood.
Good morning, I’m Ivan Pogna, I’m 18 and I live in a village in the north of Italy, it name is Sellero. My village is small infact there isn’t a pollution. My carbon footprint is 6915 kg of Co2 per year, I went to school by public transport and I eat a natural food. This project is very interesting and utility. I think the calculator is a very helpful tool for us to gain a general idea of our carbon footprints. We should work on how to reduce our consumptions in each area. For instance, if we spend too much each year buying new and unnecessary items, we should try to reduce our consumption. Every effort to live more sustainably will add up and make a big difference in the long run.
My name is Denis; I live in a small village in the north of Italy.
This village is beautiful because it is very quiet and it is in the mountain.
My carbon food print is high in HOME and TRASPORTATION categories, because my village is far from other towns, disco and my school, so i need my car or bus to go anyway. In winter the temperature is very low, we heat our house eight months per year and we usually use a lot of wood because it is cheaper. Unfortunately the other forms of energy are relatively expensive.
My carbon footprint is the following:
TRASPORTATION: 3570 kg
Hi, my name isVeronica. I live in a small village in the north of Italy. I’m 17 years old. My total footprint is 9037 kg of CO₂ per year.
Home category is highest than Italy because where I live it’s very cold and and I have to use a lot of heating and wood to heat my home beacuse my house is warm enough.
Hi, my name is Mattia, I live in the north of Italy, I calculated my carbon footprint, which is the following : 10425 Kg
transportation: 1484 kg, more than my region because I live in mountain and there aren’t a lot of public transportation.
home: 4430 kg, more than my region because in the mountain the temperature is cold and I turn on my warming-up many months.
food: 3802 kg, less than my region
purchases: 709 kg, less than my region
I’d like to decrease my carbon footprint!!! Have you got any suggestions?
Hi, my name is Zoran, i’m 18 and i’m from the north of Italy, this is my carbon footprint:
You: Your Region:
Transportation: 419 kg 1948 kg
Home: 6455 kg 1913 kg
Food: 4639 kg 3002 kg
