Stjepan C, May 16, 2013

Hello everyone! My name is Stjepan and I’m from Croatia. I’m 15 years old and I’m really glad I participate in the ISCFC. I have calculated my footprint and I found out that the total amount of CO2 I release is 5562 kg per year. That is about the same as the average in Croatia (although the usage of CO2 in the home category is 500 kg above the Cratian average).

I have decided to do same changes. First I’ll replace the old light bulbs with the new, more energy efficient ones. I’ll also try to reduce, reuse and recycle more. I intend to print and write on both sides of the paper because I cannot afford myself to waste the paper while the rainforests are suffering because of me. I will try to cut down on water consumption and take shorter showers as well. I can walk and ride my bike more often as well. I will use reusable bags instead of plastic ones. I think I will help my parents and grandparents in the garden every weekend so that we can produce more healthy food for our family.

I am aware of local and global air and water pollution and of soil contamination and of increasing number of people with respiratory and cardiovascular diseases and I think we should change our lifestyle as soon as possible. We should also do our best to help endangered plants and animals to survive. We should promote it at home and in school.

I am really happy to see so many posts from all over the world and I am glad I can learn so much from you! :)

    Nice I'm glad you're actually taking action! Good to see so many people out there like you. 5,562 is a lot better than my footprint haha.

Hi I’m Matt from Texas and my footprint is a little smaller than 10000. My footprint was a lot smaller I think because I didn’t really go anywhere or do anything.

    yeah that had happened to me too. it seems larger and larger for other people around the world. i would figure kind of the same because they are all in urbam cities for the most part. .

    Pretty cool that you both have somewhat the same footprint.
  • Devin Robinson Devin Robinson May 23, 2013
    Its really nice that you have the same amount of carbon footprint as your country congrats.

danni s, May 16, 2013

Hi, My name is Danni and I’m Pennsylvania. My carbon footprint was 17832 kg CO₂ per year. I thought it would be way higher then what it turned out to be. For transportation the results were 5842 kg, at home it is 9818 kg, for food its 1537 kg, and for purchases its 634 kg. i don’t really know what to expect for these categories. I wonder if its normal or not? I think that going this activity with my school is so cool and I really like how it has to do the whole world. Thats so cool!!!!

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.

    How is your footprint is about the 9000 co2 less than the average.

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.

    I am giving you props you have a low footprint. Good job.
  • Devin Robinson Devin Robinson May 23, 2013
    Nice, you are very close to your average carbon footprint, just a tiny adjustment and you will be ok. Keep up the good work.

davide c, May 16, 2013

Hi,
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.

Pietro M, May 16, 2013

Hello everybody!
My name is Pietro and I’m 17 years old.
I’m a student at IIS Meneghini Secondary School in Edolo, a small village in the north of Italy.
My total footprint is 10170 kg of CO2 per year. My result is more than the average of Italy (8181
kg CO2).
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.

    This is so true we do need to work on new ways to improve our methods of reducing Co2.
  • Devin Robinson Devin Robinson May 23, 2013
    I agree with you. If we can reduce and work thinks out and create new ideas to improve on how to reduce our carbon footprint.
