Can you shrink YOUR ecological footprint?
All creatures impact their environment—no problem there. But every day we make lifestyle choices that have surprisingly big impacts on our planet.
Knowing your ecological footprint—that is, the number of acres of natural resources required to support your lifestyle—and making smart lifestyle choices reduces global warming, protects wildlife, conserves water, and reduces pollution.
The average American’s ecological footprint is a super-sized 25 acres; it would take five Earths to support humanity if everyone’s footprint was that big! In comparison, the average Western European’s footprint is 13 acres, and for Mexicans, it’s six acres. Explore this site to learn how to reduce your footprint. We can all do better!
