How Many Planets Are Needed to Support Your Lifestyle?

"Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children." ~ Tribe Unknown

What is a "carbon footprint?"

Your carbon footprint is a calculation of how much land is needed to support your lifestyle, as well as a calculation of how much carbgreen house gas is emitted by a group, organization, or any individual. 

Still confused?  That's alright, have an at-home ecology lesson with your child(ren) and learn more about it!  Visit the Carbon Footprint Calculator, and complete the interactive quiz and learn more about how your lifestyle has an impact on our planet!  The kids will enjoy creating an avatar for the first portion of the quiz, and the graphics that come along with it! 

Not only will you learn your impact on earth, but you will also be provided with suggested changes to your lifestyle, that can have a positive impact on mother earth!

How many planets are needed to support your lifestyle?
What changes will you make?
