My name is Maja and I’m from Slovenia.
I didn’t know how much CO2 I release, so I took the test of Carbon Printfoot. I thougt that my footprint will be higher than average person in SLovenia, but I was wrong. My average is 6676 kg per year. Average in Slovenia is about 7362kg. I live about 5 km away from my home, so I have to travel by car, which takes about 5 minutes. I travel buy car five times a week. If I go on foot, It takes about 45 minutes, which is a waste of time. I think I’m not that kind of person, who would try to destroy nature. We have a big garden with lots of home made vegetables like tomatos, potatos, lettuce, strawberrys so we don’t have to buy them at the supermarket. I’m lucky because we have lots of rain and sun which is good for it. I’m trying to safe as much money as possible. I’m not buying lots of clothes, because I get some hand-me-down clothes from my cousin. At home, we have solar cells on roof, which absorbs sun rays so that’s why we have hot water all year long.
In my future, I’m going to go on foot as many times as possible and I’m going to continue travelling by car. I’m going to grow more vegetables and fruit in our garden.
