Take this quiz to find out your ecological footprint!
But just what is an ecological footprint? According to the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature):
“The simplest way to define ecological footprint would be to call it the impact of human activities measured in terms of the area of biologically productive land and water required to produce the goods consumed and to assimilate the wastes generated. More simply, it is the amount of the environment necessary to produce the goods and services necessary to support a particular lifestyle.”
Checking your ecological footprint can give you a good idea of your impact on the environment, and help you realize ways you can lower it!
