How many planets does it take to keep you living these days? Do you know what contributes to your global footprint or how to reduce it?
Check out Global Footprint Network and take their quiz. I just took it and right now I need 4 planets to support my lifestyle. Yikes! They offer ideas on how to reduce that amount. The ideas were very attainable and did not suggest I go live on the farm down the road. However getting my food from there will greatly decrease my footprint. The quiz was fun and didn’t take long. You create an avatar and as you answer questions it builds a photo of your life.
As we approach the end of this year and think about how we want to live our lives in 2009, what changes do you want to make? What information do you need to make those changes?
Start planning now, 2009 is only 29 days away.
