What Is Your Ecological Footprint?

Thursday, 29 September 2005

I took the Ecological footprint quiz from earthday.

The quiz is based on national consumption averages and is meant to give you an idea of your Ecological Footprint relative to other people in the country you live in.

Ecological Footprints document a given population's consumption and waste production expressed in biologically productive land and ocean areas necessary to maintain these services. By aggregating data on the consumption of various resources and on the ability of the earth to provide them, the Ecological Footprint accounts provide a means to compare various components of consumption and ultimately serve as an indicator of sustainability - or, in the case of deficits, of unsustainability

This is my Ecological footprint

Clearly, I consume Three times of resources an average Indian consumes. Shocking. That being a vegetarian(almost) and laying off packaged foods. Sigh!
