Green Your Eco-Footprint

Billions of species share this habitat we call Earth. But if these creatures are to co-exist, we must learn to live in balance.

For humans, this means reducing waste, avoiding toxic chemicals when making purchases, and being more mindful of the conditions in which our food and clothing is produced.

Use this quiz from Conservation International to calculate your eco-footprint and find the resources to live in harmony with the planet.

I scored a 75, and took the pledge. This little quiz is excellent for making us stop and think about each thing we do each day. Are each of us doing all we can?

I felt similarly when I took the quiz, Kit. You cannot currently send a star to Kit because you have done so within the last week.

I only got 60, and took the pledge. It's difficult when you live in rented accommodation as you can't force your landlady to take all these measures - I keep trying to gently coax, however! And I'll do my best to change the things I can.

Thanks for this, JL.

I have a score of 29 but many of the questions do not apply. I live the in the city, don't drive, carry my own bags, & recycle. I have no control over the heat, hot water, etc.
