April 22, 2014 will be the 44th celebration of Earth Day.
Use the footprint calculator to learn how many planets it takes to support your lifestyle and what you can do to decrease your carbon footprint.
I eat low on the food chain and minimize the amount of trash I create, so my lifestyle takes 21.7 global acres of the earth’s productive area and contributes 23.2 tons of carbon dioxide (which seems like a lot).
Using the calculator is a fun and easy; the purpose, however, is to make you think about how your habits impact the environment.
If everyone bought less, used less and threw out less stuff, we’d all be better off. What can you do this year to feel better about the condition of the earth?
